P3T Cardiac software uses a patented algorithmic model to automate administration of individualized contrast injection protocols according to patient, procedure and prescribed physician parameters. Clinicians consistently provide the right amount of contrast at the right rate of delivery for each individual patient - enhancing image quality while maintaining efficient workflow.

A clinical trial to rule out pulmonary embolism showed that P3T Cardiac provided greater contrast enhancement of the pulmonary arteries, resulting in a higher percentage of diagnostic exams to rule out pulmonary embolism when compared to standard injection protocols. (1.) The comprehensive P3T software line personalizes imaging for CT Angiography of cardiac structures, coronary arteries, chambers of the heart, thoracic and abdominal aorta, and for CT imaging of abdominal organs.

"We are very proud to be recognized by Premier for our advances in personalizing CT contrast-enhanced imaging," says Anthony Cinalli, executive director, MEDRAD Radiology Marketing. "Each new P3T application we release furthers our commitment to outcome-based innovation, and enables more patients to receive the benefits personalized imaging delivers."

The 24 showcased products were selected by a cross-functional review team of Premier alliance members and staff of varying expertise, including clinical product planners, clinical field specialists, pharmacists, supply chain professionals, materials management and nurses. Criteria for selection included solutions that display uniqueness, cost savings and have impact on an unmet medical need.
