LEARN

Webinar - Any Image, Anywhere
Radiologists and clinicians are seeking new ways to boost productivity, optimize scarce resources, and connect their workflow across the care team to help improve patient outcomes. One way to help meet these needs is to provide rapid access to images and reports when and where1 needed through a single viewer.

Webinar - Create a Better Radiologist Reading Experience
Learn about Centricity Universal Viewer with Imaging Desktop, a workflow solution designed to improve the radiologist reading experience by providing the right exams at the right time with access to clinical information and images that provides insights.

Webinar - Cross Enterprise Display - As Evaluated by Moffitt Cancer Center 
View this webinar to learn how Cross Enterprise Display can provide radiologists and cardiologists with seamless access to a patient’s historical imaging data across affiliated institutions.

Webinar - Enterprise Visualization: Consolidate, Customize, Improve
As part of the global shift to coordinated care and collaborative care models, imaging is moving from siloed, departmental systems to assume a true, enterprise level priority. To be productive and efficient while managing cost, quality and remote/internet access, imaging departments must radically rethink their approach. This includes customized workflows and advanced visualization. All this to help the enterprise improve clinical, financial and operational outcomes.

Productivity Tools

Centricity Universal Viewer with Intelligent Productivity Tools

Smart Reading Protocols
A standard feature of Centricity Universal Viewer, Smart Reading Protocols (SRP) represents a different way for radiologists to create hanging protocols and improve image setup efficiency.

In contrast to traditional hanging protocol functions available with PACS software, SRP does not require the user to set up hanging protocol rules that anticipate a multitude of scenarios, exam types and procedure information. During the normal review process, radiologists hang images based on their preferences and simply “teach” the system using a one-click learning feature. The next time the radiologist opens an exam of a similar type, SRP automatically applies the previous learnings to “hang” the image to the specified preference.

Smart Reading Protocols are available in multiple languages.

Adaptive streaming engine
The adaptive streaming engine achieves rapid image display by adjusting for network conditions, device compute power, and image compression to provide the most efficient way to deliver images. It responds rapidly to user actions to prioritize images most likely to be displayed next by the user, and uses progressive image quality if needed to optimize the user experience.

Adv Visualization

Unlock the Potential with Embedded Clinical Applications

Centricity Universal Viewer provides an enhanced user experience for advanced visualization. It offers a single source of applications and toolsets for multiple modalities and care areas, with native applications for MIP/MPR and PET-CT and enhanced solutions for vessel analysis, automated bone removal, automated registration, oncology quantification, lung and colon analysis, CT perfusion and others.

The embedded advanced applications decrease the need to log in to multiple applications and retrieve images for comparison from stand-alone “mini PACS” systems, allowing radiologists and clinicians to read exams more efficiently. This also helps increase IT productivity by reducing requests for DICOM resends and image moves between systems.

The embedded applications are combined with the system’s hanging protocols and the smart reading protocols to help reduce manual per-exam setup and support rapid reading. Preprocessed images are displayed on the monitor according to the radiologist’s preset specifications.

The starting point for the embedded applications is the 3D Advantage package. This package provides multi-modality tools used in the radiologist’s daily work. Key features include:

• 3D visualization and processing capabilities for reading and comparing CT, MR, 3D X-ray, PET, PET/MR and PET/CT datasets.

• A broad portfolio of high-performance analysis tools, automating routine tasks and helping to make 3D image processing a stress-free component of your routine workflow.

• Improved vessel visualization by removing obstructive bony detail

• The capability to align and fuse two volumetric acquisitions from either the same or different acquisition modalities, allowing you to easily compare 3D anatomical images from CT, MR with PET, and X-ray angiography for a comprehensive analysis.

• Full support of PET Standard Uptake Value (SUV)

Additional clinical specialty applications can be added on top of the 3D Advantage package. The applications available are highlighted above.

3 READY View required as the foundation for Brain View, Body View and MR Touch

Breast Imaging

Centricity Universal Viewer’s breast imaging workflow application provides access to a broad set of imaging tools, supports screening and diagnostic workflows and the display of multimodality images on the same workstation.

This distinctive application allows mammographers and radiologists to rapidly access patient history and relevant priors along with the ability to read all image types available for the patient on the same workstation, helping reduce the need to maintain separate, stand-alone workstations and separate specialized systems. For organizations without dedicated mammographers, breast images can be read as part of the overall workflow. 

The mammography and breast imaging workflow application features softcopy reading with customizable protocols and CAD display. Image types supported include mammography, tomosynthesis, breast MR, breast ultrasound, and Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography (CESM). Non-breast images available in the system can be displayed to help provide more information on the patient. Breast images are available for cardiologists to view to help enhance diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Put multi-modality images at your fingertips to help deliver a primary diagnosis faster.
