Software, Workstation Management, Cardiac Catheterization
Definition : Software designed to operate cardiac catheterization workstations, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data and images obtained during the catheterization procedure. This software usually interacts with devices used in the procedure, such as recorders, cardiac output units, and monitors; it may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed during the catheterization procedure. Cardiac catheterization workstation software is intended to work only with one or a few models of workstations and related devices usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This facilitates the processing and/or sending of data from the workstation to and from picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and/or other hospital information systems. The software is not usually available separate from the workstation but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated software intended for ventriculography and coronary arteriography procedures is also available.
