Vascular X-ray cathlab workstation software for image acquisition and reporting for cardiologists

Why Vision Tools CathView ?

The Cathlab Workstation of choice.

Vision Tools CathView is a powerful stand-alone workstation for viewing, processing and managing X-ray images and cine-loops from vascular cath lab X-ray modalities.

Vision Tools CathView is a very powerful and scalable acquisition and viewing station for cath lab machines that can be connected to any type of cath lab machine whether it is dicom or non-dicom "using video or digital interface".

One of the important features of the CathView station is that it can convert the non-dicom cath lab into a dicom one providing huge amount of functions and facilities for image information, archiving and processing

With its archiving capabilities, static and dynamic image viewing, variety of processing tools including QCA/QLVA analysis and road mapping , printing features and structured vascular reporting, the Vision Tools CathView application can be considered as an ideal solution for most cardiologists.



Archive Management

  • Receive and archive studies from DICOM modalities using different rule-based compression and routing configurations.
  • Support DICOM Store SCP/SCU and Q/R SCP/SCU.
  • Archive/Manage studies aided by multiple search criteria and search filters to retrieve the selected studies asap.
  • Import studies from CDs or USB flash disks or other portable media.
  • Create DICOM CDs/DVDs with built in Viewer for any studies in the work list.
  • Unified Patient Jacket to have a 360 degree view of patient history, old visits, old reports and attached documents.
  • Multiple search criteria and search filters to retrieve the selected studies on the fly.
  • Scan Images from any attached film scanner and save it into current study.
  • Send studies to any other DICOM server or device.


Image Management

  • View studies in multi-monitor configuration.
  • Multi-format display with up to 35 images per monitor.
  • Do windowing, zoom/pan, annotations and multiple measurements.
  • QCA / QLVA analysis option.
  • Multiple image filters for edge enhancements, sharpen, smoothing, ...etc.


Cine Loops Management

  • View Dynamic studies with Cine-Loop features for play-back controls. zoom/pan and windowing. spacial filters can be included while playback.
  • Support for multi-frame images generated from modalities.
  • Cine loops processing while playing (e.g. zooming, windowing , embossing, edge enhancement, rotation, … etc.)
  • Cine export to DICOM, AVI or MPEG. Including only part of the cine
  • Snap shot images from cine loops and storing them on related studies



  • Produce fancy looking print-outs on films or papers whether on DICOM printers or normal windows printers with the ability to design free film formats and templates, print true scale images, ... etc.
  • Visual Film Designing and operation (Visual Filming on Screen, What u see is what u print).
  • Film Template Designer (Free format).
  • Visual processing of images on film (e.g. window, zoom, pan, filters, measurements, etc.) .
  • Printing Films on both A4 paper printers and DICOM printers.

Video Grabbing Interface

For Non-DICOM Ultrasound, the best interface will be Video grabbing, by which, the SonoPro workstation aided by a remote keypad can acquire images from the ultrasound modalities one-by-one.

QCA / QLVA Analysis

Perform quantitative coronary analysis measure stenosis percentage and also quantitative left ventricle analysis to measure the ejection fraction of the heart in an easy and accurate way directly in the Cathview application and away from the modality itself.

Modality DICOM Worklist

Retreive DICOM modality worklist from any RIS / PACS server . This eliminates the need to re-insert patient information again before starting examination and acquisition . This add-on is for non-DICOM modalities in a RIS , PACS environment.
