Kodak adds system for echocardiography

Eastman Kodak introduced a digital image management system for echocardiography systems at the American Society of Echocardiography meeting in Washington, DC, last month. Kodak G4 Image and Information Management System allows for almost instantaneous response times on properly configured networks and is compatible with all ultrasound manufacturers’ equipment, according to the firm.

Kodak G4 can display comparative studies, allowing cardiologists to view archived images. It also connects echo labs with remote sites, much like teleradiology systems, according to the Rochester, NY-based company.

In other Kodak news, the company’s Health Imaging Division signed a three-year, worldwide distribution agreement with Milwaukee-based GE Medical Systems. Under the terms of the deal, GE will sell and distribute Kodak’s medical imaging equipment, including its DryView Laser Imagers, film processors, room light film-handling equipment, and film cassettes.

The agreement gives GE sales representatives the ability to sell the appropriate Kodak products along with GE equipment, eliminating customers’ need for a separate Kodak consultation, according to the companies. Kodak products will also be included on GE’s Accessories On-Line Internet catalog site.
