Ultra-capable ultrasound

The Aplio 500 offers picture-perfect imaging with advanced visualization features. Fly Thru, an industry first, provides a new perspective to 4D ultrasound, allowing clinicians to “fly through” interiors of fluid-filled ducts and vessels. Smart Fusion synchronizes CT or MR with ultrasound to locate hard-to-find lesions and aid in ultrasound-guided biopsies. High-density Beamformer technology uses the most advanced digital signal processing to control the ultrasonic beams precisely and flexibly. Toshiba

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wireless portable detectors share the wealth

Philips Healthcare now includes wireless portable detector (WPD) sharing functionality on its static and mobile digital radiography (DR) and digital radiography/fluoroscopy (DRF) equipment. This capability addresses the need to provide a variety of digital imaging capabilities to patients while also keeping costs low. Facilities can substitute one detector per modality with a single wireless portable detector, or the detector can be shared among multiple systems, allowing users to move between solutions easily as the need arises.

Archive images in the cloud

Merge Honeycomb Archive is a new image-archiving application available within Merge’s cloud-based platform. This solution provides a long-term storage option that houses images securely, in multiple locations, to provide anywhere/any-time access. It delivers comprehensive functionality in a high-availability, high-security framework that meets HIPAA, HITECH and other privacy requirements. Capacity is easily added, and a SaaS-based payment model removes the burden of having to make large, upfront capital expenditures. Merge Healthcare

 


State-of-the-art x-ray for smaller budgets

Supporting the full spectrum of routine radiography at an affordable price, the Multix Fusion digital radiography system features state-of-the-art components, such as a digital cassette-size flat-panel detector, height-adjustable table with a 660-pound weight capacity and a touch screen at the overhead tube suspension for exam parameter changes at the patient’s side. This solution combines innovation and price competitiveness – two components of Siemens Healthcare’s Agenda 2013 global initiative. Siemens Healthcare Sector

 


CR/DR and PACS in a box

The Opal-Ortho PACS solution for orthopedic practices offers one single appliance that controls every aspect of orthopedics imaging, integrating the CR or DR solution and the PACS for optimal efficiency. This solution can easily fit in a large practice with many physicians or in private practices that do not have on-site IT staff. The upgraded appliance can house 100,000 imaging studies, enough for several years of continuous operation. Mobile devices such as iPad tablets or Android devices are easily integrated. Viztek


Upgrade your image

The 21-inch MultiSync MD211G3 medical diagnostic display is a 3-megapixel grayscale model ideal for medical imaging and PACS in hospitals, doctor offices, urgent care centers and other healthcare facilities. The monitor offers out-of-the-box factory DICOM calibration and uniformity control. Its ergonomic stand offers four-way functionality that includes 150-mm height adjustment, tilt, pivot and swivel. An optional GammaCompMD QA Server provides computer networks with centralized control and management of multiple display systems. NEC Display Solutions of America

 

 

 

 

 


Make visualization a hands-on experience

Sectra’s Visualization Table is a large, multi-touch screen built into a table that provides real-size 3D views of patient anatomy rendered from CT or MR images. Surgeons can use this tool to assist with surgical planning by manipulating the virtual body with their hands to become familiar with specific anatomy; localize vessels, muscles and skeletal tissue; and study three-dimensional relationships. The table is powered by a tailored Sectra PACS workstation. Sectra Medical Systems

 


Harness and optimize your big data

Centricity PACS 4.0 can consolidate disparate PACS data across the enterprise to simplify large-scale image management. This solution is designed to make radiologists’ lives easier and deliver images to any desktop or mobile device at any time using the Centricity Enterprise Archive, a cloud-enabled, vendor-neutral technology that stores petabytes of data for thousands of GE customers worldwide. New usability features include: navigator with snap tool and timeline, single-click save and a “lights off” UI theme that decreases eye fatigue. GE Healthcare


Get exceptional image quality wirelessly

The 24- x 30-cm wireless FDR D-EVO flat-panel detector combines the dose efficiency benefits of Fujifilm’s patented irradiation side sampling (ISS) technology with the image performance of Cesium Iodide. The innovative ISS technology is designed to improve detective quantum efficiency (DQE) by reducing the distance for light signals to reach the sensing electronics. By reducing scatter and blur, it produces ultra-sharp detail even at very low x-ray exposure. Other benefits include ease of use, easy positioning and light weight. FUJIFILM Medical Systems


High-quality imaging for smaller practices

The CR 10-X is an affordable, compact, table-top medical imaging digitizer that provides small hospitals and practices an economical path from analog to digital with all the benefits of superb digital image quality. Designed to fit in small spaces, the unit is optimized for a range of imaging exams from general radiography to orthopedic, chiropractic and full-leg/full-spine (FLFS) applications. It offers high-resolution scanning of 100-µm pixels at a rate of 34 imaging plates per hour in a single-cassette feed. Agfa HealthCare

 


Automate radiation dose reporting

NovaDose calculates cumulative patient, exam and modality ionizing radiation dose history and automatically reports the patient’s exam dose profile directly into the NovaRIS diagnostic report without dictation or manual entry. This new convenience increases ease of use, saves time and completely eliminates the need for a dedicated dose-monitoring server at smaller facilities. This solution is available for NovaPACS sites of all sizes where ionizing radiation procedures are performed. Novarad


Share and collaborate via the cloud

The PeakeSecure portfolio offers a “minimally invasive” approach to clinical and diagnostic viewing via virtualization and cloud computing. This innovative medical image-sharing platform includes a mix of services from image management and disaster recovery to advanced 3D visualization and cross-enterprise image exchange and workflow. The PACS-neutral archiving solution provides secure image sharing and thin- and zero-client imaging applications at straightforward subscription pricing. Peake Healthcare Innovations
