Enhanced Usability and Access
Centricity Universal Viewer’s web-client provides radiologists, cardiologists, referring physicians, and other clinicians access to the same application and tools from any location1, on campus, at home, at the clinic or in the office.
Smart Reading Protocols1
In contrast to traditional hanging protocol functions available with PACS software, Centricity Universal Viewer’s, Smart Reading Protocols (SRP) do not require the user to setup 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.
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.
Workflow to Support Your Needs
Centricity Universal Viewer’s web-client has the benefit of allowing radiologists and cardiologists to adapt to their current workflow, using either the Centricity Universal Viewer study list, a Radiology Information System (RIS) or a Cardiovascular Information System (CVIS) to drive workflow. Using the Open Desktop Integration tools, Centricity Universal Viewer can be used as the viewer for other 3rd party RIS or CVIS systems, including those available within an Electronic Medical Record.
Cross Enterprise Display
Cross Enterprise Display provides radiologists and cardiologists with seamless access to a patient’s historical imaging data across affiliated institutions when those sites provide access. Images can be streamed from a GE Healthcare or 3rd party PACS or archive (VNA).
Advanced Visualization Powered by Advantage Workstation (AW)
Centricity Universal Viewer offers a single source for post-processing applications for MIP/MPR, PET-CT, vessel analysis, automated bone removal, integrated registration, and oncology quantification. This decreases the need to log in to multiple applications and retrieve images for comparison from stand-alone “mini PACS” systems, allowing radiologists to read exams more efficiently.
Centricity Universal Viewer provides access to an advanced breast imaging workflow application, which supports screening and diagnostic workflows and the display of multimodality images. The breast imaging application provides the radiologist with access to and 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.
Within a few mouse clicks, a referrer accesses the same software and clinical tools as radiologists: report and diagnosis, key images, and scanned documents, as well as access to the patient study and set of viewing tools. The overall user interface is highly customizable to meet explicit needs and preferences of the users.
Universal Viewer is a unified web-based viewer that focuses on improving productivity and enhancing patient care by delivering standard as well as many innovative applications and technologies including:
- Intelligent productivity tools, including smart hanging protocols
- Breast Imaging Workflow, including screening and diagnostic capabilities
- Advanced Visualization applications including Volume Viewer, OncoQuant, Integrated Registration and Autobone Xpess; all featured with Automated Preprocessing and powered by AW
