HeartIT and Siemens Healthineers Agree to Jointly Sell the Precession CMR Workflow Solution

DURHAM, N.C., May 23, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Heart Imaging Technologies, LLC (HeartIT) and Siemens Healthineers have agreed to cooperatively sell the latest version of HeartIT’s Precession cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) workflow solution. Precession is the first browser-based CMR solution to combine medical image viewing, analysis, and reporting into one comprehensive, cloud-based platform.

Powered by HeartIT’s patented zero-footprint WebPAX technologies, Precession supports accelerated image post-processing and multi-user collaboration via the cloud. A full suite of post-processing tools is included for quantifying cardiac ejection fraction, blood flow velocities, T1/T2 relaxation times, and 3D multi-planar reconstruction.

Precession provides single-mouse-click de-identification of patient data and real-time, cloud-based sharing of diagnostic-quality CMR and CCT scans, which enables physicians to quickly send images to referring physicians and colleagues. Detailed structured reports in both the English and German languages further support extensive research and data mining across users without compromising data security.

“Based on Medicare billing data, Precession software is used by six of the top 15 largest CMR centers in the United States,” said Bilal Mir, director of sales at HeartIT. “These six sites also use MRI scanners from Siemens Healthineers, underscoring that the combination of our joint offerings can support the successful growth of CMR clinical volumes.”

Precession has both FDA clearance and a CE mark, permitting distribution in the United States and European Union.
