GE Healthcare showcased the ability of its Centricity system to combine radiology and cardiology data at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society meeting in Orlando last month. The system allows the retrieval of images and reports acquired by both specialties, as well as patients' waveforms. The data are accessible from a standard PC within the hospital or clinic or from physicians' offices and homes through a secure Web-based connection. The customizable radiology workstation handles large data sets and features imaging tools including 3D, maximum intensity projection, and multiplanar reconstruction. The cardiology workstation features quantitative coronary and vascular analysis, echocardiography measurement, integrated waveform, structured reporting, and hemodynamics.
