Applications

Diagnostic Imaging
Diagnostic imaging is characterized by high performance compute and memory demands from increasingly higher image rates coupled with real-time imaging. These medical devices include large and high performance computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET)/nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound and X-ray. Most of the devices, excluding ultrasound, are found in separate dedicated radiology suites. The imaging equipment plays an increasingly critical role in the key medical initiatives around early disease detection and preventive care which in turn impacts healthcare patient costs and late life post-disease treatment. A strong evolving trend for real time imaging at the point of care for surgical diagnosis is placing even more demands on compute in cardio X-ray and 4D ultrasound. Emerson high performance industrial motherboards are the ideal platforms for diagnostic imaging.

 

Clinical Systems
Clinical systems, sometime referred to as clinical IT or clinical care equipment, is the heart of what you see in hospital, clinics and doctors offices. There is a broad spectrum of equipment such as patient monitoring, IV infusion, oximeters, defibrillation, ventilators, a variety of monitors/tablets, crash carts, infotainment, near-bed computers, medical carts and vitro diagnostics to name just a few that create the healthcare environment around us. This equipment is typically small, low power and noise-limited or fanless. It is sometimes mobile and possibly washable for sanitizing but still requires high performance processing. Emerson extended life, stable BIOS industrial motherboards are the ideal fit for this area of concentration.
