Contrast media developer Mallinckrodt has introduced its OptiSync data management software in the U.S.
Used with Mallinckrodt's OptiVantage dual-head CT contrast delivery system, OptiSync is designed to assist with collecting and analyzing radiology data from contrast-enhanced CT imaging studies, according to the vendor.
OptiSync users can scan a barcode to verify and log patient and pharmaceutical information. Following collection of injection data, OptiSync then sends patient, drug, dose, and administration information to HL7-based healthcare systems and automates the process of updating patient records, Mallinckrodt said.
In addition, OptiSync can assemble a database with information on contrast media usage, spending, workflow, and benchmarking for all users, scanners, and facilities, Mallinckrodt said.
