Exa Enterprise Imaging Provides Specialty Viewing for 3D Breast Tomosynthesis and Cardiac Imaging

WAYNE, NJ--(Marketwired - May 24, 2017) - At the 2017 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc. will showcase advanced specialty viewing capabilities of the Exa™ Enterprise Imaging platform. The platform facilitates the viewing of large medical imaging files, such as 3D mammography, cardiac imaging and nuclear medicine, quickly and efficiently on existing workstations throughout the enterprise. With the Exa diagnostic quality Zero Footprint Universal Viewer, clinicians can view these images and more from any modality and any vendor. Exa delivers relevant priors from the PACS or Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA), including 3D Breast Tomosynthesis and cardiovascular images quickly and securely.

Exa delivers a cross-department Enterprise Imaging and workflow solution. Through Server-Side Rendering, Exa provides fast access to large files without the need for prefetching. The Exa Universal Viewer and VNA enable viewing of DICOM and non-DICOM images from any device. Additionally, Exa provides cyber security with no data transferred to or stored on workstations.

By using Exa, any modality breast image -- 3D Breast Tomosynthesis, Digital Mammography, Ultrasound and MRI -- can be viewed by a radiologist on any 5MP workstation with an internet connection. Existing workstations can be repurposed with the diagnostic Exa Universal Viewer for sites that implement 3D Breast Tomosynthesis.

Cardiologists can use Exa to read and report cardiac imaging studies, including echocardiography and stress echocardiography, either onsite or remotely. Exa offers user-customizable reporting for all exams, delivering a unified structured reporting that eliminates tedious and error-prone manual entry of measurements and calculation data with DICOM SR auto-population.

Nuclear medicine specialists can also utilize the Exa Universal Viewer to read PET/CT studies from any location. Exa supports Fusion, MPR, MIP and full measurement tools for these studies.

"Konica Minolta is committed to delivering innovative solutions that help facilities maximize their existing technology investments while providing the tools clinicians need for interoperability and image sharing across disparate systems," says Steve Deaton, President, Konica Minolta Healthcare IT. "As the landscape of healthcare systems and practices continue to change through mergers and acquisitions or expand with stand-alone specialty clinics, clinicians need systems and solutions like Exa to integrate information, consolidate viewing and deliver fast access to imaging data."

Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas will demonstrate the advanced capabilities of Exa Enterprise Imaging with specialty viewing capabilities at SIIM in booth 517, June 1-3, in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Pittsburgh, PA.
