The GE CardiacVX1 for MRI is
an analytical software tool, which provides reproducible tools for the review
and reporting of medical images. CardiacVX can import medical images from a MR
system and display them in a
viewing area on the computer screen. The viewing area allows the access to
multiple studies and series of multi-slice, multi-phase images. Multi-phase
sequences of images can be displayed in a cine mode to facilitate
A report input interface is also available. Measurement tools on the
report interface make it possible to quickly and reliably fill out a complete
clinical report of an imaging exam. Available tools include: point, distance,
area, and volume measurement tools such as ejection fraction, cardiac output,
end-diastolic volume, end-systolic volume, and
volume flow measurements.
Semi-automatic tools are available for left ventricular contour
detection, valve plane detection, vessel contour detection for flow analysis,
signal intensity analysis for
myocardium and infarct sizing measurement, and T2 star analysis.
The results of the measurement tools are interpreted by the physician and can be communicated to referring
When interpreted by a trained physician these tools
may be useful in supporting the determination of a diagnosis.
