GE introduces ultrasound data management system
GE Healthcare introduced its ViewPoint Vascular comprehensive ultrasound data management solution for vascular labs last week at the Society of Vascular Surgeons (SVS)/Society of Vascular Ultrasound (SVU) in Baltimore, Md.

ViewPoint Vascular combines reporting and image archiving with a database technology built to speed report creation while capturing data for statistical analysis. An integrated DICOM worklist simplifies the patient exam, while one-click data transfer for measurements and images from multi-vendor ultrasound machines using DICOM SR saves clinicians time and ensures accuracy. This paperless information flow, which offers options for HL7 and DICOM interfaces to EMR, HIS and PACS, allows vascular labs to virtually eliminate paper and videotape documentation for ultrasound.

ViewPoint Vascular enables users to create quick and accurate structured reports for each study. Physicians can review electronic reports with integrated images and diagrams before electronically signing a final report. The integrated LOGIQworks FX plug-in to ViewPoint vascular allows for advanced ultrasound image review and post-processing.
