Healthcare Technology and News: Intuitive Imaging to Demonstrate New Interactive Clinical Technology Solutions

Intuitive Imaging, a picture archive and communication system (PACS) provider, will be showcasing real-time image distribution and the latest in interactive clinical technology built on the network infrastructure from Allied Telesis.

The Intuitive demonstrations will include real-time 3D imagery of human bypass heart operation as well as radiology demonstrations to show the speed, quality and delivery of medical images.

Allied Telesis claimed that it offers the ideal solution for enterprises who want a future-proof network that will both accommodate their needs today, and scale to meet their future requirements. Its solutions can also be used to build a network core that provides both an adequate capacity for current and future traffic requirements, and resilience in the event of failure.

Due to the large file sizes of 3D imagery medical facilities grappled with the process of transmitting them to their counterparties. A unified medical imaging solution can create a more reliable healthcare solution and at the same time provides an improved patient experience, as well as educational and research capabilities for medical professionals.

Allied Telesis explained that a typical hospital network requires the bandwidth of 1.2 GB to 1.5 GB, creating a limitation as to how far 3-D imagery can travel over a network. With its solution that limitation has now been extended to 30 miles. In a medical app, the solutions are capable of networking several hospitals together in a given region and use this technology to train medical staff or exhibit actual operations to be supervised by experts.

Officials with Allied Telesis commented that it as a one big step forward for the medical field with great implications in quality of care. The company's role is to partner with other leaders in the space to create progress in healthcare network technology, and ultimately better healthcare.

"The advent of 3-D technology has changed the way medical images are reviewed and communicated to patients," said J. Martin Pfaff, Ph.D., president of Intuitive, in a release. "Timely decision making is critical in providing quality healthcare services, therefore, your network must facilitate the effective and efficient transfer of large and complex files, including the ability to handle significant surges in data transfer. Working with Allied Telesis, we are able to ensure that medical professionals receive information in a timely and strategic manner."
