What is the PlusPack module?

PlusPack groups several useful, advanced quantitative and productivity features in one bundle. These features are:

  • Motion frozen: compensate for cardiac motion to generate sharper perfusion datasets
  • Serial change assessment: directly compare serial studies, bypassing comparisons to statistical databases
  • Prone/Supine SPECT perfusion quantification: help eliminate artifacts by merging information from both acquisition positions
  • Shape index calculation: quantify ventricular remodeling, an early marker of disease
  • Phase analysis: assess mechanical dyssynchrony using powerful quantitative and visual tools
  • Powerpoint export: launch the Cardiac Suite from within Microsoft Powerpoint® for enhanced, more interactive presentations

What is the CSI data browser?

Our software packages are designed to be installed on your computer, not on vendor workstations. To use the quantitative applications studies need to be transferred from your acquisition systems to your computer with the Cedars-Sinai software.

CSI allows you to transfer studies and manages the datasets on your computer. Its main features include:

  • Pull data from DICOM Query/Retrieve and FTP servers as well as legacy systems
  • Push data from DICOM systems to your computer
  • Import data from CDs or other removable media, or from a network share
  • Simple, intuitive data management lets you organize data in folders to manage clinical and research projects
  • One-click anonymized mode hides patient identification so you can use the software in interactive lectures
