New introductions include automated, closed loop resolution manager with integrated pathology reporting, and web-based breast cancer risk assessment

June 13, 2019 — Ikonopedia will showcase its suite of structured breast reporting and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) management tools designed to improve reporting efficiency, and optimize facility operations at two upcoming radiology meetings. The company will be exhibiting at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting, June 26-28 in Aurora, Colo., and the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) annual meeting, July 21-25 in Aurora.

Ikonopedia recently introduced an automated, closed loop resolution manager with integrated pathology reporting capabilities to make sure that patient findings do not get lost in the shuffle of a busy clinic.

To expand access to quality breast healthcare, Ikonopedia also recently introduced an integrated risk assessment tool, now available in any language. The company also provides users with the first-ever web-based version of the Tyrer-Cuzick Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool. Risk data is used to create alerts for the radiologist, populate the clinical section of the report and automatically update the patient letter. A high-risk patient alert identifies patients with a 20 percent or greater lifetime risk and information about the score is instantly viewable.

CHICAGO, Nov. 22, 2017/PRNewswire/ — Ikonopedia and Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc. are showcasing integrated breast imaging workflow and reporting, here, at the upcoming 103rd Annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting, November 26-December 1, 2017. Ikonopedia and Konica Minolta will demonstrate the integrated breast reporting package at the Konica Minolta booth (South Hall #1919) and Ikonopedia will also be available for educational meetings in MS224, located in the South Exhibit Hall.

Ikonopedia and Konica Minolta have expanded the partnership to integrate both the Opal and Exa healthcare IT platforms with Ikonopedia’s solution for breast imaging reporting and tracking. The integration with Exa offers a seamless, closed-loop experience with multi-directional functionality and automated follow-up for patients with significant BI RADs®. Ikonopedia’s solution captures various points of data from the Exa Mammo software to provide a complete patient profile that will result in automatic patient warnings and alerts.

“With more attention than ever on breast imaging quality and increasing tracking requirements for the new EQUIP inspections, we are pleased to integrate both our Opal and Exa offerings with Ikonopedia’s innovative reporting solutions,” said Steve Deaton, President, Konica Minolta Healthcare IT. “The combination of Ikonopedia’s closed-loop resolution manager and Exa Mammo stops patients from getting lost in the shuffle and monitors patients to full resolution, improving patient safety and saving valuable time for the radiologist and staff.”

Exa’s custom workflow engine design and advanced toolsets make it an ideal solution across a broad array of imaging services—from the enterprise to specialty based clinics. The Exa platform is comprised of multiple modules including PACS, RIS, EHR and specialty viewers, supporting digital breast tomosynthesis and cardiovascular imaging. The Exa modules can be used together as an integrated solution or individually with a facility’s existing software investments. It offers a diagnostic-quality Zero Footprint Universal Viewer and vendor neutral archive for DICOM and non-DICOM images; Server-Side Rendering for fast access to large files, such as 3D Mammography, with no prefetching required, and cybersecurity with no data transferred to or stored on workstations minimizing unwanted exposure to patient data. The Exa Platform was designed to enable each facility to design its own preferred imaging workflow, very simply, with drag and drop tools. The entire step-by-step process can be customized quickly and easily.

The Ikonopedia structured reporting system reliably captures pertinent data to meticulously track patients through each stage of the exam process. The MQSA-compliant toolset is targeted and automated to monitor patients in all categories of care. Structured data is captured from multiple locations including resources within Exa, the patient questionnaire, risk-assessment, technologist reporting, physician reporting, follow-up recommendations and more. Data is monitored to produce automatic warnings and alerts, personalized patient letters along with a detailed report to relay these findings to referring physicians.

Ikonopedia provides reporting tools for screening and diagnostic modalities including mammography, ultrasound, and MRI. EQUIP audit data is automatically captured in the background and reports are BI-RADS® language compliant based on the latest BIRADS® Atlas (5th edition). Data is pulled forward from previous exams and our risk-assessment tools including Tyrer Cuzick to automatically alert the radiologist and populate reports for high-risk patients.

“With the growing focus and urgency to improve breast imaging and accountability, we are pleased to integrate our breast imaging technology, which has not only helped mammography centers optimize patient and referring physician reporting, but also to implement individualized patient risk assessment tools, with Konica Minolta’s Exa Platform, one of the most advanced healthcare IT platforms available on the market,” said Emily Crane, CEO, Ikonopedia.
