Acuson shows connectivity in cardiology at ACC meeting

Ultrasound vendor Acuson of Mountain View, CA, demonstrated data transmission between cardiology equipment at the American College of Cardiology meeting in March. Acuson and industry partners Mitra Imaging of Waterloo, Ontario, and Marquette Medical Systems of Milwaukee sent data from a HIS to Acuson's Aspen ultrasound scanner, a move that the companies believe is a first step toward complete cardiovascular work-flow integration.

Order-entry data in the HL-7 protocol was sent from the HIS to Marquette's Muse CIS, and then to Mitra's PACS Broker gateway, where it was translated from HL-7 to DICOM. The DICOM data was then used to populate patient demographic data fields in Acuson's Aspen ultrasound scanner. Acuson believes the demonstration is a step toward the development of a complete digital echocardiography lab.
