New software offers advanced features, enhanced workflow and improved security

May 8, 2019 — Carestream introduced its ImageView Software Platform Windows 10 operating system to deliver enhanced security. ImageView software was first introduced with the Carestream OnSight 3D Extremity Imaging System and will be further expanded across Carestream’s entire portfolio, including rooms, retrofits and additional mobile imaging X-ray systems in the future.

“ImageView software delivers an intuitive interface and consolidated screen views to boost productivity as well as new capabilities that can improve both workflow and security,” said Jill Hamman, Carestream’s Worldwide Marketing Manager for Global X-ray Solutions. “This software uses Eclipse, our advanced image processing engine, to deliver exceptional image quality and enhanced diagnostic confidence, while providing a foundation for new applications in the future.”

The software platform supports image processing and workflow capabilities including: 

  • Enhanced Visualization Processing Plus software that delivers multi-band frequency processing to provide better noise control, sharpness, contrast and density while minimizing artifacts;
  • Tube and Line Visualization that uses a companion image created from the original exposure with optimized processing for clearer, easier visualization of PICC lines and tubes to help increase confidence that tubes and lines are placed correctly;
  • Pneumothorax Visualization that uses a companion image created from the original exposure to accentuate the appearance of free air in the chest cavity;
  • Bone Suppression software that uses a companion image created from the original exposure to reduce the appearance of bone and enable better visualization of soft tissue;
  • Pediatric Image Optimization and Enhancement software that acquires default acquisition techniques and image processing parameters optimized specifically for each patient's body size, from the smallest neonatal patient to the largest adolescent;
  • SmartGrid software that provides image quality comparable to images acquired with an anti-scatter grid and offers reduced patient dose for bedside chest imaging; and
  • Access to RIS and PACS platforms that streamlines exam completion for increased productivity.

ImageView software also provides the ability to manage an imaging department’s productivity and quality. The Administrative Analysis and Reporting option can help improve performance with a digital dashboard that allows users to track average exposure rates by technologist, rejected images with reasons and other statistics including detector drops. The Total Quality Tool package provides objective quality control image tests and collection of detector performance data.

Although it is likely that existing ultrasound systems will be repurposed to treat COVID-19 patients, growth is still expected as companies plan to ramp up production. The ultrasound systems market will therefore outpace other diagnostic imaging such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Leading data and analytics company GlobalData forecasts the market will reach $6bn by 2028, but increased usage due to COVID-19 is anticipated have a tangible effect.

There were several new developments in digital radiography (DR) technology at the 2019 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting. These trends included integration of artificial intelligence (AI) auto detection technologies, more durable glassless detector plates, and technologies to pull more diagnostic data out of X-ray imaging. Some vendors also have redesigned their DR systems to make them more user-friendly and ergonomic.

Lymphocytic Inflammation in a Lung from a Patient Who Died from Covid-19. The gross appearance of a lung from a patient who died from coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) is shown in Panel A (the scale bar corresponds to 1 cm). The histopathological examination, shown in Panel B, revealed interstitial and perivascular predominantly lymphocytic pneumonia with multifocal endothelialitis (hematoxylin–eosin staining; the scale bar corresponds to 200 μm).
