TomTec to enter cardiology PACS market
TomTec Imaging Systems, a provider of 3D/4D ultrasound and echocardiography information management systems, is expanding into the field of cardiology PACS.

The Munich, Germany-based TomTec is pre-announcing CardioArena, the network and imaging solution for Cardiology to be released in 2008.

The CardioArena platform will be available for 2D, 3D and 4D imaging data, and can serve as a multimodality platform for all major medical imaging systems, such as ultrasound, MRI and cath lab, the company said.

For existing enterprise PACS and CPACS environments, TomTec said its CardioArena presents itself as an add-on solution that opens up opportunities for new medical imaging technologies like 3D/4D echocardiography.
