GE Healthcare CASE Exercise Testing and CS Diagnostic System Offer New Clinical Capabilities and Scalable IT Options to Support Accurate Diagnosis of Heart Disease | GE News

NEW ORLEANS–April 4, 2011–GE Healthcare is introducing its latest innovations in cardiac
diagnostic tools to help empower physicians to make fast, accurate
diagnoses that can potentially improve patient outcomes. Providing
clinical intelligence for early diagnosis of heart disease, CASE and CS
Diagnostic Systems from GE Healthcare enable physicians to access more
clinically relevant information through expanded connectivity options
and unique algorithms.

Showcased at the American College of Cardiologists 2011 meeting, GE
Healthcare’s CASE Exercise Testing now offers two new tools. The first
is a patented Exercise Test Interpretation (XTI) statement that
highlights critical values used in stress testing. These values allow
for advanced analysis of risk prediction, functional response and
ischemia. This additional information provides clinicians with insight
into early heart disease, allowing them to make better treatment

The second new tool, GE Healthcare’s ST/HR hysteresis analysis feature,
enables increased accuracy1 in detecting coronary artery
disease in women and adds confidence in identifying the most appropriate
treatment according to a clinical study conducted by Dr. Kati Svart,
Department of Biomedical Engineering, Tampere University of Technology,

Additionally, risk-predicting algorithms, including the Duke Treadmill
Score, the patented T-wave Alternans and Heart Rate Recovery, assist
physicians in predicting which patients are at risk of sudden cardiac

GE Healthcare uses industry standard communication protocols, including
HL7, Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM), XML, and
TCP/IP. The DICOM Modality Worklist supports bi-directional data
exchange and simultaneous review of imaging and ECG data, to improve
dual modality procedure efficiency. The Web view feature allows Internet
access to procedure reports from anywhere, with access privileges.
