Powerful
Provide oncologists with the lesion management data they need for treatment planning.
Advanced
Expanded clinical tool sets and multimedia reporting enable more precise reading, increased productivity and greater clinical insight.
Flexible
Easily add teleradiology capabilities to provide nonreading hospitals with quality reports.

Features & benefits

Oncology reading workflow
Providing added clinical insight to referring physicians is critical, especially for programs such as oncology. The Lesion Management Tool application allows you to offer follow-up for high-value exams requiring complex treatment planning – such as oncological exams. The Lesion Management Tool delivers the data referring oncologists need – trending analysis, measurements, anatomical bookmarking and more.
Neurology reading workflow
Use our interactive CT Perfusion and MR Perfusion tools to analyze tissue blood flow, volume and capillary permeability, with automatic detection of arterial input function, venous output function and brain centerline, and automatic display of results in perfusion maps and tables. The MR Diffusion tool enables visualization of local water diffusion properties, simplifying analysis and comparison of diffusion weighted images and diffusion tensor imaging.
PowerViewer
Speed interpretation with multiplanar reconstruction, vascular representation and volume rendering at one click of the mouse. The volumetric PowerViewer enhances the traditional two-dimensional viewer and creates a single, virtual study with real-time 3D volumetric registration of all relevant studies, including priors, with synchronized views across multiple data sets.
Advanced 3D imaging
Create, modify and view 3D images without leaving the source data. Vue PACS 3D imaging efficiently handles huge data sets, providing remarkable speed and simplicity for displaying current and prior studies side by side and applying 3D tools to both. 3D analysis options include maximum intensity projection (MIP), volume rendering and tissue definition. 2D and 3D-rendered images are automatically loaded to provide a summary of the entire anatomy, with automatic 3D positioning of cross-referencing lines.

Fast
Accelerate turnaround time with user-defined templates, structured reports and embedded voice recognition.
Integrated
Provide reading and reporting in a single workspace, with key images presented alongside patient details and analytical information.
Simple
Reduce costs and improve outcomes with one system that’s easy to deploy and train across multi-site, multi-vendor environments.

Features & benefits

Reduce cost while improving communication
Reduced need for CDs or DVDs, Secure access to and management of their own data with value added innovative patient services. Elimination of third-party dictation system costs for a quicker report turnaround, allowing better service to referring physicians and clinicians using a single system for ease of administration and training.
The speed of embedded voice recognition
The Interactive Multimedia Reporting Module, with embedded voice-recognition capability, can help reduce your turnaround time. It entirely eliminates the need for typing and entry of patient or clinical context. Exam data can be inserted directly into reports. This allows radiologists to quickly review and approve final reports, while adding clinical context for referring physicians.
A single reading and reporting workspace
Reporting from any place where images can be viewed with less work and fewer errors. Simple, structured native reports enables fast evaluation and quality reporting via access to priors with hyperlinks.
Clinically rich content with smart navigation
Multimedia reports, including key images and charts for a smart and intuitive hyperlink navigation enabling value-added communication with patients. No need for special drivers or third-party software, less integration and simpler deployment during upgrades.
