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
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.”
