Mortara Instrument and ScImage Announce DICOM ECG Collaboration

March 27, 2008 – Mortara Instrument and ScImage will collaborate on the DICOM ECG standard to integrate Mortara DICOM ECG modalities with ScImage’s enterprise wide PACS, PicomEnterprise.

The ECG modality integration will allow Mortara ELI series electrocardiographs to communicate directly with the ScImage solution. The DICOM enabled ELI devices will communicate bi-directionally and receive a DICOM Modality Worklist (MWL) with patient demographics and order information from the ScImage PicomEnterprise PACS solution. The ECG will then be transmitted to the PicomEnterprise PACS solution for workflow management, reporting and storage of the DICOM ECG object with results reporting to the hospital information system. The ECG test will then be accessible by the clinician and physician to view the ECG in context with other test results and images stored within the PicomEnterprise archive. These tests can include but are not limited to echo, cath, vascular exams, nuclear cardiology and hemo-dynamic reporting. ScImage’s PicomEnterprise solution also integrates with other DICOM ECG modalities including Mortara stress and Holter products. Testing and integration of the DICOM ECG solution between the two companies has been on going with installations in North America. The solutions are available with both the PicomEnterprise and PicomOnline solutions from ScImage.

The two companies have joined a growing group of industry leaders supporting use of the DICOM standard for ECG. Adoption of DICOM ECG changes the paradigm of proprietary communications protocols and hardware that is commonplace in diagnostic electrocardiography. With DICOM, no proprietary communication protocols are used, protecting the customer from device obsolescence and decoupling the choice of information management solution from device solution.
