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 - 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. 

Webinar - Enabling a multi-modality breast cancer detection workflow
View this webcast on how an adaptable portfolio of technologies, insights and services can help meet the unique breast care needs of all women, especially those with elevated risks.

Webinar - Huron Regional Medical Center
View this webinar featuring Huron Regional Medical Center and learn what capabilities organizations should look for in a Zero Footprint viewer. Additonally you will learn a best practice approach to adopting Universal Viewer ZFP and how a regional medical center quickly grew referrer access using the Universal Viewer ZFP.

Webinar - Intelligent Tools for a Productive Radiologist Workflow, Universal Viewer Smart Reading Protocols
View this webinar recording to learn how you can help enhance diagnostic speed and confidence with GE Healthcare's Enterprise Imaging Solutions. This webinar focuses on Universal Viewer smart reading protocols; one of the intelligent tools to optimize productivity.

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

Centricity Universal Viewer provides a single image repository, enabling holistic oncology and other specialty workflows, with easy access to prior exams.

Advanced tools in a single solution

Centricity Universal Viewer provides an enhanced user experience for advanced visualization. It 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 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 advanced visualization applications powered by AW are combined with the system’s hanging protocols and the smart reading protocols to help reduce manual per-exam setup. Preprocessed images are displayed on the monitor according to the radiologist’s preset specifications, helping to decrease set-up time and helping to support rapid reading.


Advanced Visulization

Autobone & VessellQ Xpress
Autobone & VessellQ Xpress provides you with easily accessible, user-friendly tools with which to analyze data.

Integrated Registration
Integrated Registration provides you with the capacity to fuse and register two volumetric acquisitions from either the same or different acquisition modalities.

OncoQuant
OncoQuant helps you correlate and compare CT, MR, PET/CT, and 3D X-ray data. It automates workflow to facilitate comparisons over time and makes reviewing follow-up exams more efficient.

Volume Viewer
Volume Viewer provides state of the art 3D visualization and processing capabilities for reading and comparing CT, MR 3D X-ray, PET, and PET/CT data sets.


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.
