AMICAS’ Next-Gen PACS Adds 3D, Mammo Tools

November 18, 2008 - AMICAS Inc. will unveil its next generation PACS, Version 6.0, at the 2008 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting from November 30 to December 5, 2008, in Chicago, IL.

AMICAS PACS Version 6.0 introduces intrinsic 3D, a mammography workflow, advanced personalization and hanging protocols, and patient-centric reading to the radiology marketplace.

Version 6.0 introduces the next generation of AMICAS PACS, which combines a web-based design of previous versions of AMICAS PACS with major enhancements to the image viewing toolset. Complementing the industry leading RealTime Worklist, Version 6.0 introduces the Halo Viewer, which includes advances in functionality aimed at increasing radiologist productivity and designed to help improve the quality of reading.

Together, the RealTime Worklist and Halo Viewer provide anywhere access to imaging exams supports a centralized or distributed reading model with an advanced toolset.

With Version 6.0’s intrinsic 3D and mammography workflow tools, radiologists can interpret a wide variety of exam types - all within a single viewer.

Version 6.0 also introduces “patient-centric reading,” which includes a complete view of the patient’s current exams, relevant priors and other prior exams along with valuable clinical information such as orders, reports and technologist comments.

Version 6.0 has received FDA clearance and is in beta testing at multiple AMICAS customer sites. AMICAS anticipates that AMICAS PACS Version 6.0 will be generally available in early 2009.
