cmr42 Cardiac MRI Post-Processing Software Now Integrated Onto GE Advantage Workstation Platforms

Software from Circle Cardiovascular Imaging allows advanced viewing and analysis including heart function, flow, tissue characterization and tissue parametric mapping

February 6, 2017 — At the Society of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) 20th Annual Scientific Sessions, GE Healthcare showcased cmr42 cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) post-processing software integrated onto its GE Advantage Workstation (AW) and AW Server platforms. Cmr42 software delivers a comprehensive toolset for cardiovascular MR image analysis, including features such as automated contour definition, quick editing tools and synchronized viewing schemes that simplify tasks commonly done manually.

AW is GE Healthcare’s 3-D medical imaging visualization and analysis solution that provides clinicians with a portfolio of multi-modality clinical applications to aid image interpretation and reporting. The AW Server extends AW capabilities throughout a hospital network by offering remote thin-client access from virtually any computer within the enterprise.

The cmr42 cardiovascular post-processing software package, licensed from Circle Cardiovascular Imaging, contains a comprehensive suite of advanced, easy-to-use modules for viewing and analyzing cardiac MRI images, including heart function, flow, tissue characterization and tissue parametric mapping (T1/T2/T2*).

The software is currently available from GE as a stand-alone option. The AW-integrated cmr42 software will be commercially available in spring 2017.
