Carestream Health To Debut RIS/PACS, SuperPACS Architecture

Carestream Health will debut upgrades to its newest PACS that include an embedded reporting module and a convenient graphic display for “at a glance” viewing of available patient records and data.

The company also will show its new RIS that supports a secure Web portal that enables patients to re-schedule an imaging appointment and centralized scheduling for multiple imaging sites. Time-saving new reporting features include voice-driven commands, structured reporting, standard answers and the ability to copy content from prior reports. The company’s innovative SuperPACS Architecture that links multiple vendors’ RIS/PACS also will be displayed. It enables facilities to create workflow efficiencies through a global worklist across the enterprise, and its PowerViewer dramatically improves radiologist productivity for viewing 3D exams. The company also will demonstrate a vendor-neutral archive for images and data that is available in on-site or off-site configurations.

In other news, Carestream Health will also launch a retrofit kit that allows several vendors’ mobile analog X-ray generators to be upgraded to accommodate wireless, cassette-size CARESTREAM DRX-1 detectors for immediate digital image capture. It also will offer a new long-length imaging accessory for its tabletop Point-of-Care 360 system.

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.
