2021 was a turbulent year for healthcare due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As Cardiology departments across the U.S. begin to return to normal, they have been impacted with increased procedure volumes, while dealing with pandemic related issues such as new disinfection routines, which have impacted workflow processes. In addition to exploring the pandemic’s impact on Cardiology department imaging, IMV’s 2021 Use of Imaging in Cardiology Report looks at department priorities, procedure volumes, purchase plans and buying criteria for future cardiology imaging equipment.
This 2021 Use of Imaging in Cardiology Report summarizes the results of survey respondents from U.S. hospital sites participating in IMV Medical Information Division’s 2021 Cardiology Survey. The survey results are from 94 hospital sites in the U.S. that perform cardiology imaging procedures and have imaging equipment that is owned or leased exclusively by the cardiology department. Respondents participated in IMV hosted online survey from June-August 2021.
