Brit Introduces Cloud-Based Peer Review for Radiologists

November 27, 2011 – At RSNA 2011, BRIT Systems, Inc., introduced Peer Review for Radiologists, a cloud-based solution for radiologists to perform peer reviews as per the ACR recommended scoring system. As a cloud-based solution, radiologists can review studies read by radiologists within their group or those read by outside radiologists. The new solution will be shown at BRIT Systems’ RSNA booth #4200.

The cloud architecture makes it easy to distribute and read the studies. Exams are uploaded via DICOM TLS (using https security) or an upload widget. Reports can be attached to the studies or, with additional integration, sent via HL-7. A system administrator enters the percentage of exams to be reviewed by modality type and the system randomly selects these studies, eliminating any selection bias. Radiologists may view the studies directly on the Peer Review system using the WebWorks browser-based viewer or the application can be integrated onto their workstations.

“With the addition of Peer Review, Roentgen Worksflow now provides one integrated workflow for all radiology functions and reading requirements—including order entry, widgets for uploading, DICOM viewing, distribution of studies, advanced worklist options, on-hold, urgent findings, ER discordance and advanced viewing tools, including 3D and mobile viewing with the iPad,” said Shelly Fisher, President, BRIT Systems. “It is BRIT Systems’ latest tool in our radiology IT arsenal.”

Designated department managers can view reports of specific, detailed results where the images and reports are just a click away and they can also view statistical analysis. All reports are downloadable into Microsoft Excel for further analysis and for forwarding to auditing agencies. Peer Review for Radiologists runs as a module in Roentgen Works, which can also support urgent findings, emergency messaging, radiology reporting, iPad viewing and other services.
