Carestream Health’s PACS Workstation Faces Off with Advanced, Native 3-D Functionality

June 19, 2007 — During Stanford University’s 9th Annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT last week in San Francisco, the Kodak CARESTREAM PACS Workstation performed all clinical imaging exams — completely and on time — at the “Workstation Face-Off”.
The “Workstation Face-Off” challenged providers of advanced 3-D image processing technologies to process and interpret four complex CT imaging studies. The Web-based CARESTREAM PACS workstation used native volumetric processing, while many other vendors used dedicated 3-D workstations. In one instance, according to the company, the CARESTREAM workstation enabled the reading radiologist to process a cardiac CT study with 2,760 images over a 4-megabit/second line in less than six minutes, thanks to new streaming technology and advanced cardiac features.
With CARESTREAM PACS, 3-D and other advanced features can be used on any workstation inside or outside the facility.
“The CARESTREAM PACS platform allows me to efficiently read radiology exams for four hospitals and imaging centers that are geographically dispersed across the Los Angeles area since I can perform all needed functions, including 3-D processing, at any on-site workstation or at my home,” said Jennifer A. Hill, M.D., CEO, Renaissance Imaging Medical Associates and Medical Director of Imaging Services, Antelope Valley Healthcare District Hospitals and Clinics, Los Angeles, CA.
The workstation offers native 2-D and 3-D capabilities from a single virtual desktop. These capabilities include MIP (maximum intensity projection), MinIP (minimum intensity projection), MPR (multiplanar reconstruction), volume rendering, tissue definition and vessel tracking functionality. Specialized cardiac functions are also included, such as cardiac review and analysis, cardiac cage removal in 3-D imaging and cardiac calcium scoring.
Optional integrated applications include image fusion and orthopedic surgical templating as well as mammography-specific tools and reporting features.

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.
