Centricity Universal Viewer
Versatile. Scalable. Interoperable.
Imaging provides a crucial gateway to patient care and serves as an essential touchpoint for clinicians. Centricity Universal Viewer helps to enable that—by giving you the Power of One unified, web-based diagnostic viewer that supports your natural workflow, facilitates faster and smarter decision making, and helps you stay focused on what’s most important: patient outcomes.
Centricity Universal Viewer is designed to optimize your productivity and lower clinical costs. This includes providing radiologists and other members of clinical teams the power to help:
- Improve clinical workflows by providing a central, intuitive workspace that makes it easy to organize, prioritize, and manage exams.
- Access a wider range of images and clinical information by connecting seamlessly to other third-party systems and sources of information.
- Make faster, more informed decisions with advanced efficiency tools that help clinicians find, view, and leverage data for more informed interpretations.
- Find, review, and analyze images from multiple modalities in one convenient application, without the need for dedicated workstations, including 2D, 3D, 4D, and other advanced image formats.
- Work from any location with a zero footprint viewer that provides enterprise-wide and community-wide access to medical images and reports from any location where there is an internet connection.1
Intelligent Productivity Tools
Smart Reading Protocols
A standard feature of Centricity Universal Viewer, Smart Reading Protocols (SRP) represents a different way for radiologists to create hanging protocols and improve image setup efficiency.
In contrast to traditional hanging protocol functions available with PACS software, SRP does not require the user to set up hanging protocol rules that anticipate a multitude of scenarios, exam types and procedure information. During the normal review process, radiologists hang images based on their preferences and simply “teach” the system using a one-click learning feature. The next time the radiologist opens an exam of a similar type, SRP automatically applies the previous learnings to “hang” the image to the specified preference.
Smart Reading Protocols are available in multiple languages.
Adaptive streaming engine
The adaptive streaming engine achieves rapid image display by adjusting for network conditions, device compute power, and image compression to provide the most efficient way to deliver images. It responds rapidly to user actions to prioritize images most likely to be displayed next by the user, and uses progressive image quality if needed to optimize the user experience.
Centricity Universal Viewer's breast imaging workflow application provides access to a broad set of imaging tools, supports screening and diagnostic workflows and the display of multimodality images on the same workstation.
This distinctive application allows mammographers and radiologists to rapidly access patient history and relevant priors along with the ability to read all image types available for the patient on the same workstation, helping reduce the need to maintain separate, stand-alone workstations and separate specialized systems. For organizations without dedicated mammographers, breast images can be read as part of the overall workflow.
The mammography and breast imaging workflow application features softcopy reading with customizable protocols and CAD display. Image types supported include mammography, tomosynthesis, breast MR, breast ultrasound, and Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography (CESM). Non-breast images available in the system can be displayed to help provide more information on the patient. Breast images are available for cardiologists to view to help enhance diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Put multi-modality images at your fingertips to help deliver a primary diagnosis faster.
Centricity Universal Viewer provides enterprise wide advanced visualization and quantification tools for Cardiology, offering a single source for coronary and vascular analysis, nuclear cardiology, volume analysis, and echo measurement and analysis tools such as 2D strain, 3D and 4D visualization. Centricity Universal Viewer offers embedded access to GE Healthcare's EchoPAC™ Plug-In, AW Advanced Visualization, Medis™ and TOMTEC™ tools.
Centricity Universal Viewer provides access to the following tools:
- Coronary and Vascular Analysis
- Stenosis Analysis
- Ventricular Analysis
- Echo Analysis

Centricity Universal Viewer Zero Footprint (ZFP) provides clinicians, radiologists, cardiologists and specialists enterprise-wide and community-wide access to images and reports from anywhere3 on the user's device of choice4. Centricity Universal Viewer ZFP provides access to direct or through connectivity with your institution's Electronic Medical Record (EMR), HIS, RIS or physician portal applications. Centricity Universal Viewer ZFP is cleared for diagnostic use5 and helps physicians view the clinical content that is available for a patient across the longitudinal care continuum. Both DICOM data and XDS (Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing) content can be viewed in a single solution.
Universal Viewer with Cardiology capabilities
Centricity Universal Viewer provides advanced visualization and quantification tools for Cardiology, offering a single source for coronary and vascular analysis, volume analysis, echo measurement and analysis such as 2D strain, 3D and 4D visualization as well as advanced measurement tools for CATH procedures. Advanced Cardiology Tools are powered by TomTec-ArenaTM6
Additional powerful tools that are tightly connected with Centricity Universal Viewer help to enhance clinical confidence and further facilitate information flow through the department or enterprise by saving advanced analysis results as a DICOM SR (Structured Report) and a DICOM SC (Secondary Capture).
With the tight connectivity to the TomTec ArenaTM software, Centricity Universal Viewer provides easy and quick review of individual images and sequences supported by a variety of time saving features. Prior studies can easily be compared with current examinations including the simultaneous display of cardiac catheter and echo or NM examinations to provide additional clinical information.
Centricity Universal Viewer with Xeleris™
As a nuclear medicine clinician today, you're being asked to do more, in more places with fewer resources. Your world is unique and you need technology that can adapt quickly and intuitively. That's where Xeleris can help. With our latest release as one of the industry's leading nuclear medicine image management solutions, Xeleris has never been more capable.
The Xeleris platform has a heritage of delivering innovative productivity tools, built-in connectivity, exceptional processing speed and advanced versatility. By giving you access to information where and when you need it, Xeleris helps you do more with your nuclear medicine department.
Increased access to Xeleris applications on Centricity Universal Viewer and the AW Server may help improve your reading efficiency and diagnostic confidence as well by having more relevant data available for image interpretation. Also, single workstation review can help improve the economy and efficiency of your reading room. And access improvements providing image data in more locations outside of the reading room can lead to greater confidence, efficiencies and potentially improve collaboration.
