Teleradiology Solutions, a leading provider of teleradiology services, has entered into a joint research partnership with GE Global Research, the centralised research organisation of the General Electric Company to explore new techniques in 3D imaging analysis.
According to the partnership, Teleradiology Solutions will provide a clinical evaluation of the latest products developed by GE Global Research in the areas of 3D advanced applications for Magnetic Resonance (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) imaging. One area of focus is vascular imaging, where enhanced 3D visualisation of blood vessels would improve the quality of healthcare by enabling doctors to accurately diagnose and treat patients with vessel blockages, aneurysms, and other vascular pathologies in a non-invasive manner.
“3D post-processing is a powerful new tool for doctors, that allows to visualise blood vessels in the body with a high degree of clarity, non-invasively,” said Dr Arjun Kalyanpur, CEO of Teleradiology Solutions. He further added that many of the applications developed by the General Electric Company in Whitefield in Bangalore are integrated into the GE Advantage Windows (AW) workstation and used in conjunction with the latest versions of Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners in the US.
The three-year-old Teleradiology Solutions certified by the Joint Commission of Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) is a leader in the imaging interpretation space and provides U.S. and Indian hospitals readings of all non-invasive imaging studies including CT, MRI, ultrasound, nuclear medicine studies and digitised X-rays via remote interpretation. It also provides sub-specialty consultations in cardiovascular imaging to Narayana Hrudayalaya and Columbia Asia in Bangalore.
GE Global Research is headquartered in New York and has facilities in Bangalore, India, Shanghai, China, and Munich, providing innovative technology in molecular medicine, energy conversion, nanotechnology, advanced propulsion and security technologies.
