Updated CVIS System Features 3-D and Intelligent Structured Reporting

November 30, 2010 – New clinical and reporting capabilities have been added to a cardiovascular image and information system (CVIS). Version 4.0.5 of Synapse Cardiovascular, by FujiFilm Medical Systems, now features 3-D and intelligent structured reporting (ISR), enabling faster creation of consistent, high-quality echocardiography reports.

Synapse 3D

Cardiologists and radiologists alike will benefit from Synapse 3D, a comprehensive set of clinical applications for advanced diagnostic performance. It will be integrated directly into Synapse Cardiovascular, offering users workflow and clinical benefits that are not available with other 3-D applications. It can be launched from Synapse Cardiovascular and 3-D measurements are directly imported to the database to automatically go to the structured report for the physician. The software can also perform analytics on images from nearly every vendor’s modalities. Key tools include CT coronary angiography, CT and MR cardiac function analysis, calcium scoring and cardiac fusion, allowing fusion of CT, SPECT, CT Function or MR Function. Other standard tools included are 2-D, 3-D and 4-D viewer, sector MR (multi-planar reconstruction), and dynamic data. It has not been approved for cardiovascular imaging in the United States.

Synapse Cardiovascular 4.0.5

The company is also the first vendor to integrate with the GE Healthcare EchoPAC workstation application, which reviews and analyzes echocardiographic exams acquired on GE Healthcare Vivid products. While working within Fujifilm’s CVIS application and reviewing a Vivid exam, cardiologists and sonographers will now be able to launch the EchoPAC plug-in directly from an image. This helps enhance workflow by eliminating the need to log in to two separate systems and toggle between two workstations.

Furthermore, the images and data can be seamlessly exported directly into the Synapse Cardiovascular database and report reducing the need for manual entry and the risk of error.

Intelligent Structured Reporting

ISR enables cardiologists to benefit from consistent, high quality echocardiography reporting by providing tools that help improve the reading accuracy and report consistency when interpreting echocardiograms. It is expected to be widely available during the first quarter 2011.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
