Carestream Debuts New PACS Viewer as WIP

March 5, 2009 — Carestream Health Inc. will show its “power viewer” for its PACS workstation, a power viewer designed to speed interpretation and reporting for routine exams and 3D imaging studies where complex data sets need to be compared, at the European Congress of Radiology.

This enhancement, which is part of the company’s next generation of PACS, provides automatic registration and volumetric matching of 3D studies created at different times and by different modalities directly within the viewer used by radiologists.

This new power viewer goes beyond the functionality offered by integrated or native 3D capabilities. Radiologists will be able, says the manufacturer, to directly and dynamically view image data in different planes without switching to other applications or workstations. Automatic registration among differing studies will allow radiologists to manipulate one data set in any spatial plane and the other data sets will automatically follow.

This viewer can eliminate time-consuming manual or semi-automatic processes currently used to set up comparison tools. Instead radiologists can immediately use reference lines, swivel, rotate, relate and other tools within current and prior imaging studies. This advanced comparison includes volumetric analysis and different rendition types such as MPR, MIP and others.

By speeding the comparison of 3D studies, this new viewer can help enable greater diagnostic confidence, faster exam interpretation and more responsive reporting.

This new viewer was demonstrated as part of Carestream Health’s newest RIS/PACS platform that offers advanced tools and features to streamline the delivery of imaging services and boost productivity. The new RIS/PACS, currently a work in progress, is scheduled to be available worldwide in the second quarter of 2009.
