October 29, 2018 — Hitachi Healthcare Americas participated in the cardiovascular screening and diagnostic triage event that took place across four clinical sites in the greater Morgantown, W. V. on Oct. 20, 2018. This event provided 375 rural patients a resource for diagnostic screening not normally available in their region.
The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) Foundation is the ASE’s charitable arm. Through their health outreach events program, the ASE Foundation brings adult and pediatric cardiac care to areas in need to advance population health research and to ultimately provide quality diagnostic cardiac care to the underserved.
Hitachi has worked closely with the ASE Foundation and the Heart and Vascular Institute at West Virginia University to assist in delivering this important care. Hitachi provided premium-level ultrasound systems for patients needing high-level echocardiograms. In addition, Hitachi’s Informatics Division provided image review and reporting services, via cloud-based picture archiving and communication system (PACS) technology, using the VidiStar platform.
The Lisendo 880, Hitachi’s premium 2-D/3-D diagnostic ultrasound solution delivers high-quality imaging for cardiovascular patients in any clinical setting.
