Vital Images to Address Specialized Workflow and Efficiency Challenges at SIIM 2017

Company will also demonstrate new solutions for image management workflow and predictive financial analytics

Vital Images to Address Specialized Workflow and Efficiency Challenges at SIIM 2017

June 1, 2017 — An industry expert from Vital Images, Inc. (Vital) is participating in a discussion with the healthcare community on specialized workflow and efficiency challenges at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2017 annual meeting, June 1-3 in Pittsburgh.

Tim Dawson, vice president of engineering at Vital, will participate in the educational program, #AskIndustry Sessions, where vendors and SIIM attendees interact to gain valuable insights and find ways to collaboratively solve challenges frequently faced by organizations. 

The session, entitled “Challenges and Solutions: Enterprise-wide Access of Diagnostic and Clinical Images,” will address how to provide access to enterprise imaging and effectively integrate it within the electronic medical record (EMR), other portals and imaging informatics solutions. The session will also explore interoperability, diagnostic interpretation, and clinical and mobile use cases.

Along with showcasing its modular, enterprise-wide imaging portfolio, Vital is presenting two new solutions to expand its enterprise suite, including a specialized image management workflow solution and a predictive analytics solution. The specialized image management workflow is a fully aware monitoring and retrieval technology allowing for centralized access to images that are in disparate picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). Engineered to support multi-site and unaffiliated entities, a wide range of capabilities are available including patient matching, DICOM data alignment, pre-fetch and distribution. 

Vital will also demonstrate a work-in-progress predictive financial analytics application that helps healthcare leaders see the future financial success of their imaging businesses and receive recommendations for achieving revenue and cost-saving opportunities.

Figure 1: Examples of chest CT images of COVID-19 (+) patients and visualization of features correlated to COVID-19 positivity. For each pair of images, the left image is a CT image showing the segmented lung used as input for the CNN (convolutional neural network algorithm) model trained on CT images only, and the right image shows the heatmap of pixels that the CNN model classified as having SARS-CoV-2 infection (red indicates higher probability). (a) A 51-year-old female with fever and history of exposure to SARS-CoV-2. The CNN model identified abnormal features in the right lower lobe (white color), whereas the two radiologists labeled this CT as negative. (b) A 52-year-old female who had a history of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 and presented with fever and productive cough. Bilateral peripheral ground-glass opacities (arrows) were labeled by the radiologists, and the CNN model predicted positivity based on features in matching areas. (c) A 72-year-old female with exposure history to the animal market in Wuhan presented with fever and productive cough. The segmented CT image shows ground-glass opacity in the anterior aspect of the right lung (arrow), whereas the CNN model labeled this CT as negative. (d) A 59-year-old female with cough and exposure history. The segmented CT image shows no evidence of pneumonia, and the CNN model also labeled this CT as negative.
