Availability Approaching for Carestream’s Latest Digital Dashboard

June 4, 2008 – The latest version of CARESTREAM Digital Dashboard that includes proactive notification for system events via email or text messaging will be available worldwide on June 19, supporting CARESTREAM RIS/PACS and CARESTREAM Information Management Solutions while reportedly offering system administrators a way to monitor equipment performance, storage utilization and user volumes from virtually anywhere.

Radiology and PACS administrators can now elect to receive user-configurable email or text message alerts for issues ranging from disk space and table space thresholds to disruptions in network connectivity and failed processes. These preferences can be changed at any time, and notifications can be sent to other users when the primary administrator is out of the office or is not on call. Administrators can also opt to receive on-screen notifications so they will be alerted to a system event when working in another application on their desktop.

RIS reports are now available (in addition to PACS reports) so administrators can view snapshots of exam progress and other workflow characteristics.

An enhanced user interface is designed to present information in a more convenient format and allows maintenance checklists to be managed separately for each server. Dashboard updates, training and feedback sessions and product news can be delivered directly to the administrator’s desktop via an icon that changes color when new content has been posted.

Optional integration of the IBM Lotus Sametime module with the dashboard reportedly allows administrators to instantly communicate with radiologists, physicians and other system users.

The digital dashboard also enables administrators to verify network communication of other vendors’ devices. Having a consolidated view of system performance data reportedly allows an administrator to maximize department productivity by staying a step ahead of potential bottlenecks, and enhance personal productivity by reducing daily system administrative tasks.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
