Agfa introduces cardiology solution for lesion follow-up

15 May 2008

Agfa HealthCare, is displaying its latest solution for lesion follow up at EuroPCR, in Barcelona, Spain this week. The solution, shown for the first time, will be part of the company's IMPAX Cardiovascular system for integrated data and image management in cardiology and will allow clinicians to focus on the lesion follow-up history. It will be available in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia,

The software, which will be available later this year, allows the clinician to focus on the monitoring of the stenosis in a time-longitudinal view, with all relevant data and images in one view, rather than being required to upload the separate studies, as is currently the standard.

"The solution is an integral part of the company's drive towards the convergence of images and clinical data," says Dr Ciprian Albu, Medical Director of Agfa HealthCare for Cardiology. "Agfa HealthCare is the first to achieve a full integration of the image follow-up as part of the overall clinical follow-up of any procedures. This turns the post procedure monitoring of coronary lesions into a more time-efficient process, reducing the need to sift through unrelated data"

The new feature will be incorporated into Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX Cardiovascular, a solution with integrated multi-modality and multi-lingual cardiovascular information management providing a consolidated view of all cardiology and radiology images within a single review station. IMPAX Cardiovascular is vendor-neutral and delivers innovative features, including tightly integrated structured reporting, legacy equipment image management, and secure global access to diagnostic data.

The modalities integrated in IMPAX Cardiovascular include cardiac catheterization, echocardiography, cardiac CT angiography, electrophysiology and device therapy, and nuclear medicine, delivering a single integrated cardiovascular information solution.
