TomTec announces cardiology PACS

7 April 2008

TomTec Imaging Systems, a Munich-based producer of 3D/4D ultrasound and echocardiography information management systems, has announced it will launch a cardiology picture archiving and communication system (PACS) in 2008.

TomTec's CardioArena is a network and imaging solution for 2D, 3D, and 4D imaging data. CardioArena serves as multimodality platform for all major medical imaging systems such as ultrasound, MRI and Cathlab.

CardioArena has a modular structure that enables it to be tailored towards private practices, group practices and large hospitals. It has workflow oriented solutions that allow for advanced communication, efficient quantification, analysis and reporting.

Dedicated clinical application packages process and analyse data from various imaging modalities with the same (one) analysis method, thus measurement results among different modalities become more comparable.

For existing enterprise PACS and CPACS environments, CardioArena can be an add-on solution that opens up opportunities for new medical imaging technologies like 3D/4D echocardiography.

Frank Schlau, Chief Marketing Officer said, “In today’s clinical cardiac settings, effective communication amongst physicians and individual departments is a must. The availability of patient, image and analysis data at the place-and-time-of-care is a common goal of physicians and hospital administrations. Also, clinicians and patients need to have access to the best and most cost-effective diagnostic tools available, independent of the imaging modality."
