I don't like Lumedx' Apollo system, told them so and why at SVS 
meeting, they promised to send someone to talk with me and never did, 
I don't think they're all that interested in their customers if 
that's their response- the physicians have to read the study, then 
generate reports (and can't use the computer for anything else while 
it chugs along), and then we have to sign reports we can't even see 
(a liabilty issue)- we should have one step, not three
I hope to be using Medstreaming soon and would be able to give you a 
working assessment after we've used for a month or so, but it looks 
like it will archive DICOM cardiac and vascular stuff and generate 
reports, said to work well with electronic medical records
