Data Management Systems

 

A healthcare institution’s digital transformation is only as good as its data management system. The development of proper channels for database systems and data integrations is a core part of Analogic’s development, and companies have trusted Analogic’s management tools to capture and store data for decades.

 

Data acquisition systems are responsible for building the medical images we use to treat and diagnose conditions effectively. Analogic pioneered the use of big data models within CT use cases and continues to innovate within the field in a number of disciplines. Analogic continues to apply decades of industry experience towards new application development that pushes the boundaries of diagnostic imaging.

 

Integration of DAS and Detectors for a Higher Level of System Integration

 

Analogic developed two revolutionary diagnostic tools — the industry’s first true 64-slice data acquisition system (DAS) and the world’s widest coverage, multi-slice commercial DAS, capable of imaging the heart between beats in a single rotation of the CT gantry. These state-of-the-art subsystems have greatly expanded CT use cases in cardiology and neurology.

 

In fact, these two subsystems virtually eliminated the need for expensive, invasive procedures and hospitalization. Patients enjoy state of the art decision making and diagnostic tools while institutions receive real-time data access and an increase in the types of data CT can capture. The virtualization of these data sources allows doctors and healthcare providers to diagnose with a high degree of data quality.

 

Our data management systems (DMS) combine our data collection electronics with innovative, wide-area detectors in a tileable architecture. Our DMSs provide our OEM customers with a higher level of system integration — reducing both cost and time to market.

 

We also develop DMSs for innovative systems in multi-modality applications, including:

 

  • Radiation Therapy Equipment– We both developed and continue to supply the CT portion of healthcare’s most advanced radiotherapy system, which combines a CT system with a linear accelerator to better locate and treat cancer.
  • Nuclear Imaging Equipment– We both developed and continue to supply the CT portion of an innovative dual-modality (or hybrid) nuclear imaging system that:
    • places a CT beamline on the gantry of a single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scanner.
    • combines the precise anatomical imaging of the CT with the functional imaging capabilities of the SPECT system in a “fused” image using dual image capability.
    • enables clinicians to precisely locate specific regions of interest on the combined scan.
