In a bid to grow its presence in the cardiac market, Canon Medical is integrating ScImage’s cloud-native enterprise image management and PACS solutions with its QMAPP Hemo portfolio, designed by its Canon Medical subsidiary, Fysicon, via a strategic partnership.

The portfolio consists of the QMAPP hemodynamic measuring system for hemodynamic calculations as well as the QMAPP Reporting Module and the QMAPP amplifier. The platform is user-friendly and can be mounted to a standard interventional X-ray or operating table, creating more operational space and freedom of movement in the interventional lab space without losing patient or exam data.

Using ScImage’s cloud platform, Canon plans to offer technology and business models around the use of its solutions in ways that are tailored to each client’s specific needs.

“With a shared vision and perfectly complementary products, we can drive the future direction of cardiology and beyond,” said Sai Raya, founder and CEO of ScImage Inc., in a statement.

The QMAPP Reporting Module records, integrates, analyzes and reports information for clinical processes from or to other systems. The QMAPP amplifier monitors all vital functions and records intracardiac ECG during electrophysiological exams.

ScImage’s single-database PICOM365 enterprise platform supports end-to-end imaging workflow for all data formats in cardiology as well as radiology, women's health, orthopedics, ophthalmology and more.

The customizable solution provides secure VPN-less image exchange solutions among legacy silo systems, cloud users and various EHR systems, and can be delivered on-premise, in the cloud, or as a hybrid.

“ScImage has been a trusted partner of Canon’s for over five years, and it’s because we hold the same foundational values of keeping our customers first and delivering the best in innovative products and solutions. Having ScImage partner with Canon Medical will only make our offerings that much better,” said Bill Newsom, managing director of vascular systems for Canon Medical Systems USA, in a statement.

ScImage initially announced plans to partner with Canon back in November 2022 at the Radiological Society of North America, emphasizing their shared “customer-centric focus, decades of experience and knowledge in building solutions for healthcare imaging."
