HeartIT’s Precession cardiovascular
MR workflow solution
Siemens Healthineers and Heart Imaging Technologies have announced a distribution agreement for the Precession cardiovascular MR workflow solution.

Medicare billing data confirms that six of the top 15 largest cardiac MR centers in the U.S. are Precession customers, according to the director of sales at HeartIT, those sites also own Siemens MR scanners.

The Precession workflow solution provides clinicians with a single, browser-based platform to view medical images, create structured reports in English and German, and perform analyses. The diagnostic-quality MR and CT images can also be sent to referring physicians and colleagues over the cloud.

Historically, cardio MR departments have used two or three different software programs to perform their analyses — and they usually don’t allow the physician to simultaneously engage with a colleague outside of the hospital, and interact with a case.

“An exam doesn’t end when the patient leaves the scanner. Analyzing the procedure, reporting any findings, and getting the information back to your colleague or referring physician takes considerable time and effort,” Brent Reed, chief technology officer at HealthIT, said when the solution was introduced to the market in March 2015.

Precession also supports image post-processing and is equipped with a full suite of post-processing tools to quantify cardiac ejection fraction, blood flow velocities, T1/T2 relaxation times and 3-D multi-planar reconstruction.

The global MR systems market is booming and is set to hit over $7.5 billion by 2021, according to a Technavio market report from February. That’s partly due to the development of MR-compatible pacemakers, which enable physicians to utilize cardiac imaging techniques that can’t be performed on patients with implanted devices containing ferromagnetic material.

Precession has both FDA clearance and CE mark and is available for purchase in the U.S. and European Union.
