EasyViz Viewer helps improve treatment of cerebrovascular accident patients in France

EasyViz Viewer becomes part of the telemedicine project Tele-AVC


April 12, 2013 — Approximately 130,000 people in France suffer from cerebrovascular accidents every year, 20 percent of them die within a month from the accident. That’s twice as many as in car accidents. Seventy-five percent of survivors are left with permanent damage. Quick and accurate diagnosis can reduce or prevent further severe brain damage and save patients’ lives or reduce the consequences of the cerebrovascular accident.

Project Tele-AVC is designed to enable emergency room (ER) staff to receive neurological expert consultation anytime, using a telemedicine network. Four hospitals (Caen, Saint Lô, Cherbourg and Lisieux) located throughout the Lower Normandy region in France are connected via this telemedicine network to ensure immediate access to neurological expertise 24/7 for any emergency patient in the region. The ERs of these four hospitals serve almost 200,000 emergency patients a year. Any other regional hospital can join the network if they have an ER open around the clock, a team of trained clinicians, direct access to scanner or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and and intensive care unit to monitor the patients. Project Tele-AVC is the first phase of the initiative to connect the whole region through a telemedicine network.

The network consists of local archives, one regional archive, a secured server and an enterprise viewer. Local digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) archives provided store the images taken in the particular hospital to which the patient was admitted and push them to the regional archive. This archive is connected to a secured EasyViz server provided by Medical Insight, which in combination with EasyViz Enterprise Viewer enables advanced treatment of medical images for radiologists on call at home, using a basic internet connection.

EasyViz Enterprise Viewer uses adaptive streaming technology, which ensures smooth and fast image processing even over a slow internet connection, making it comfortable for both the ER personnel and the neurologist to use. Virtually non-existent waiting times in displaying even large CT and MRI studies and intuitive interface of EasyViz make teleconsultations as natural as personal consultations.
