Two imaging providers have agreed to cooperatively sell the newest version of an innovative cloud-based CMR workflow solution.
The browser-based Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) software solution combines viewing and an analysis of medical images, and reporting in one cloud-based platform.
Under the agreement between Siemens Healthineers and HeartIT both companies will sell the latest version of the Precession zero-footprint CMR solution. The Precession has both US FDA clearance and the CE Mark (Conformité Européenne) approval, and features WebPAX technologies, and multi-user collaboration and accelerated image post-processing over the Internet cloud. Precession also includes post-processing tools for quantifying cardiac ejection fraction, blood flow velocities, auto-calculation of LV and RV volumes, 3D multi-planar reconstruction, and T1/T2 relaxation times. The solution also provides real-time cloud-based sharing of diagnostic-quality CMR and CCT scans, and single-mouse-click de-identification of patient data.
Precession supports detailed structured reporting in both English and German, and is intended to improve the efficiency of reading CMR imaging procedures. Clinicians can use all fields in the reports for data mining.
Director of sales, Bilal Mir at HeartIT, said, “Based on Medicare billing data, Precession software is used by six of the top 15 largest CMR centers in the United States. These six sites also use MRI scanners from Siemens Healthineers, underscoring that the combination of our joint offerings can support the successful growth of CMR clinical volumes.”
