Australia, 3 September 2019 – Sony has released a new, more user-friendly workflow version of its vendor-neutral medical imaging platform, NUCLeUS. The next generation will offer hospitals a streamlined digital imaging workflow and create valuable efficiency improvements. It can also easily deliver key information, such as video and audio wherever and whenever it is needed across the whole hospital campus.
NUCLeUS offers hospitals a host of new revolutionary benefits. From enhanced training and education tools to cost-effective networked medical image content management. It can boost the performance of all imaging applications and service offerings in interventional suites, operating and examination rooms. It also provides users with a real-time transmission function, which helps clinicians and management teams make more informed decisions.
A new world of smart medical applications is emerging, and Sony is committed to helping healthcare organisations streamline their imaging workflow, so clinical staff can provide the best professional offerings.
NUCLeUS aims to be the ‘operating system’ for medical imaging in hospitals by contributing to operational efficiency, safety and quality improvements and providing tools for better informed clinical decisions. The secure and ultra-fast connectivity to an almost unlimited on or off-premise computing power, a toolbox for signal processing and new AI technologies bring OR integration and real-time data processing in hospitals to a completely new level of workflows in healthcare.
“At Sony, we aim to develop the most advanced imaging solutions that empower medical professionals to provide their patients with better and more effective care. This new release of NUCLeUS is a big step forward on that path,” explained Leonard Yap, Head of Medical Imaging Solutions, Professional Solutions Company (PSAP) at Sony Electronics Asia Pacific. “With the steady growth of connected devices in modern hospitals, it’s now becoming a clear necessity to have a central imaging ‘operating system’ in place that collects, stores and distributes medical imaging files, not only within operating rooms, examination rooms and interventional suites but across the entire hospital network.”
“With NUCLeUS, medical professionals can be confident of the highest image quality and operational efficiency in their imaging workflow, to assist them in making better informed clinical decisions.”
NUCLeUS showcases the continued Sony investment in providing a flexible and future-proof software-based environment for the healthcare industry. It introduces a new suite of NUCLeUS smart applications and is designed to utilise existing hospital network infrastructures as much as possible ensuring a fast return of investment.
The new additions and improvements available in the next generation of NUCLeUS include:
Workflow-orientated features for clinicians include:
Customers that have deployed NUCLeUS in a move to create enhanced surgical imaging workflows and optimise their operations include:
This next generation is the result of Sony’s acquisition in 2016 of eSATURNUS, a Belgium-based company that provides leading clinical video-over-IP solutions in the medical field. This expertise, combined with Sony’s leading imaging and AV/IT technologies, has led to the continual investment and development of NUCLeUS™.
