Telemis delivers dual-modality PET/CT imaging direct to desktop
17 May 2011
Belgian comany Telemis has released new software for its medical image-management system, which provides a full-featured dual-modality PET/CT viewer on any PC across any hospital using Telemis software.
The upgrade is provided free with a standard software maintenance contract, and will enable healthcare institutions to reduce patient waiting times, speed up diagnosis, and enhance treatment.
Dual-modality PET/CT scans combine the low-resolution functional PET imagery with the precise localisation possible with a CT scan, helping specialists to identify conditions such as cancers more quickly and accurately, and to assess the progress of treatment. This type of imaging has become the 'gold standard' in oncology. The latest software from Telemis greatly increases accessibility by allowing dual-modality viewing on any PC or laptop running TM-ReceptionHE. Image fusion is performed locally, allowing oncologists to adjust the images independently for optimal viewing.
“Our philosophy, to maximise value for customers by developing new functionality on a continuous basis, is providing healthcare professionals with the right tool at the right moment in the right place,” said Stephane Ketelaer, CEO of the Telemis group. “This latest software update, to version 4.2, adds important extra functionality that will provide easier and faster access for oncologists to the information they need.”
