January 9, 2015 — Carestream is now the first company approved to provide the latest picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) for use in U.S. Navy medical facilities as a result of meeting some of the most stringent product security requirements for the Navy’s DIACAP certification process.

Carestream has received an official Authorization to Operate (ATO) from the Department of Defense (DoD) Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) that enables the Navy to implement Carestream’s Vue PACS at any Naval Medical Treatment Facility across the globe. DIACAP is a process by which information systems are tested and certified for compliance with DoD security requirements and accredited for operation.

Carestream’s Vue PACS can support multi-site reading of diagnostic exams and sharing of radiology information to help physicians determine the best treatment for each patient’s condition.

While security testing of new systems typically occurs in a lab environment, Carestream’s PACS — along with its cardiology PACS feature — was successfully tested in an extremely complex environment at one of the largest DoD hospitals that performs more than 300,000 radiology exams a year. The native reporting application — a voice recognition and reporting feature that allows remote reading by radiologists, which expedites the delivery of radiology reports and helped eliminate transcription costs — was also included in the Navy’s field testing process.

With the diagnostic viewing capabilities of Vue PACS, users can consolidate the reading of all medical imaging exams onto a single platform, which can boost productivity while simplifying operations and support. Its scalable, Web-enabled platform integrates smoothly with complex environments and complies with XDS, HL7, DICOM and IHE standards.

The software offers radiology reading tools such as MPR, MIP, MinIP, volume rendering, tissue definition, vessel tracking and cardiac analysis. The PACS can automatically register 3-D imaging data sets (such as magnetic resonance and computed tomography) to help highlight subtle changes in anatomy and improve clinical collaboration. Vue PACS also provides lesion management as a native clinical tool that can simplify the comparison process between different data sets and supports oncology follow-up with bookmarking and tracking of general anatomy over time.
