Carestream’s Vue PACS to Support Specialized Care at Johns Hopkins Health System

Carestream Vue PACS Johns Hopkins Health System Specialized Care

April 24, 2014 — The Johns Hopkins Health System in Baltimore, Md., purchased Carestream Health’s Vue PACS, which offers innovative radiology features that can further enhance the organization’s ability to help deliver exceptional medical services for patients with a wide range of diseases.

The new picture archive and communications system (PACS) will support multi-site reading of medical imaging exams and sharing of diagnostic information to help physicians determine the best treatment path for each patient’s condition. Vue PACS includes innovative tools to support physician segmentation and bookmarking of cancerous lesions and automatically register 3-D imaging data sets (such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT)) to help highlight subtle changes in anatomy and improve clinical collaboration. Vue PACS also can help optimize the reading of mammography studies including digital breast tomosynthesis exams, as it supports the readingg of images from all breast-imaging modalities on a single PACS workstation.

Representatives and clinical staff of the Johns Hopkins Health System evaluated all major PACS suppliers and then conducted multi-week, on-site evaluations of multiple PACS that were ranked highest by the organization’s selection team.

With Carestream’s Vue PACS, the health system will be able to consolidate the reading of all imaging modalities onto a single platform, which can boost productivity while simplifying operations and support.   

The PACS initially will be used by The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and two outpatient imaging centers. The health system will manage the PACS from its state-of-the-art data center at Mount Washington, Md., and imaging exams will be replicated and stored at a facility on its East Baltimore medical campus for disaster recovery.
