Advanced Volumetric Reading Tools Enhance Efficiency of Updated PACS

August 23, 2010 - New advanced 3-D capabilities comparable to those offered by dedicated advanced visualization systems are available on the latest Carestream picture archiving and communications system (PACS) platform upgrade.

“The Carestream PACS workstation delivers an impressive suite of 3-D tools that is on par with the best dedicated 3-D systems available. It supports a broad range of volumetric functionality, but its automatic volume matching image registration of extremely large datasets inside the viewer is probably the biggest differentiator,” said David Hirschorn, M.D., director of radiology informatics, Staten Island University Hospital, Staten Island, N.Y. "This allows radiologists to perform an automated review that saves time and can enhance diagnostic quality. Another important feature is its ability to support productive remote reading from home or office computers using various bandwidths.”

The newest addition to the PACS platform’s 3-D toolset is an automatic abdominal and cardiac vessel segmentation. This feature uses algorithms to automatically locate relevant vessels and presents clinicians with the ability to easily and quickly detect results, such as the extent of blockage in a vessel or the size of an aneurysm. This information is presented in a format that allows clinicians to easily accept, correct or extend vessels.

A new user-interface provides thumbnail images for patient information and imaging studies, enabling fast, easy selection of desired information that helps reduce or eliminate manual searches for relevant data.

The PACS is being highlighted at the annual meeting of the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA).
