Royal Philips is launching an echocardiography image analysis and reporting solution—Ultrasound Workspace—at the American College of Cardiology’s annual scientific sessions (ACC 2022, 2–4 April, Washington DC, USA). Ultrasound Workspace is a vendor-neutral echocardiography image analysis and reporting solution that can be accessed remotely via a browser.
According to Philips, by using the system clinicians can leverage “seamless diagnostic workflows from the ultrasound exam room to the reporting room and beyond”, wherever echocardiography data needs to be reviewed and analysed.
“With its new remote, browser-based accessibility, Philips Ultrasound Workspace is the first advanced vendor-neutral 2D/3D echocardiography viewing, analysis, and reporting system that extends the superior user experience of Philips’ cardiac ultrasound system EPIQ CVx into multiple connected environments,” said Jeff Cohen, general manager of Ultrasound at Philips. “We have combined the power of AI with deep clinical knowledge to create a solution that integrates into the workflows of healthcare providers to help drive efficient clinical decision-making. With Ultrasound Workspace, our customers can experience a whole new world of echocardiography workflow to help improve both the patient and staff experience.”
“Philips has been instrumental in moving the field of 3D echocardiography forward. Their software, which is consistently developed with input from physicians, has been a true help for the echo community in general,” said Roberto M Lang, director, nonin-vasive cardiac imaging laboratories at University of Chicago Medical Center (Chicago, USA) who has published multiple papers on the use of AI and machine learning in echocardiography.
