Vital Images Ranks at Top of 3D Imaging in Survey of U.S. Hospitals

April 9, 2009 – Vital Images recently announced the results of an independent survey of nearly 2,400 U.S. hospitals with more than 100 beds, which showed Vital Images continues to be the market share leader among 3D imaging vendors.

According to the study, for the second year in a row, Vital Images held the top market share position among all advanced 3D visualization software vendors, with nearly three times the market share of other independent vendors.

Respondents named Vital Images the clear market leader more than any other vendor. Vital Images was also cited in the survey as having the best technology and as having shown the most improvements in the past 12 months. In facilities surveyed with software from multiple vendors, respondents named Vital Images the advanced visualization software they use most frequently.

Among its current relationships, Vital Images is working with physicians at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to integrate its advanced visualization tools into the hospital’s PACS environment.

“We have a compelling clinical and organizational need to seamlessly integrate advanced visualization tools into PACS, making these tools available across all of our departments and facilities,” said Dr. Ramin Khorasani, vice chair of the department of radiology and director of medical imaging information technology at Brigham and Women's Hospital. “We feel that this effort is important to improving the quality of our clinical services. We need the active and creative assistance of our key vendors to achieve our vision in the near term.”

To obtain direct feedback from customers, Vital Images commissioned independent healthcare market research firm Dominic and Irvine Research to survey all 100+ bed hospitals in the U.S. Surveys were conducted between April and November 2008. Results reflect information gathered from nearly 2,400 100+ bed U.S. hospitals (86 percent coverage).
