Complementary Technologies in Women's Imaging Having Positive Impact

Providers keeping a close eye on hurdles that hint at change within women's imaging.

    OREM, UT, May 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Advanced women's imaging is taking center stage as providers are now looking at the performance of supporting technologies to ensure accurate diagnosis. That and other key insights can be found in a newly released KLAS report entitled Women's Imaging 2013: Measuring the Options.

This report also dives into the biggest obstacles facing women's imaging as told by the providers. Reimbursement, patient education, and state notification bills about breast density are some factors that healthcare providers are watching closely as they look to the future of women's imaging.

"There is a lot of energy around women's imaging and how different technologies are coming together to improve the delivery of care," said Monique Rasband, research director at KLAS and report author. "But another side of the story will shed light on what effect the lack of reimbursement and laws such as the notification bill are having on women's imaging."

The vendors highlighted in this report include Hologic for their top performance, Siemens for improvement in their automation, GE Healthcare for their solid network of field support engineers and MRS for becoming a leader in MIS for the first time.

Other vendors highlighted in this report include Aurora, Carestream, Dilon, FUJIFILM, PenRad and MagView.
