Carestream Health to Demonstrate New Generation PACS

The new PACS (shown as work in progress at RSNA 2008) will deliver significantly enhanced reading tools that can help speed exam interpretation and provide enhanced reporting, particularly for complex exams when comparing data sets.

New features will include real-time volume matching and automatic registration for CT, MR and PET/CT exams. This innovation synchronizes views of the region of interest from multiple data sets, making it much faster and easier for radiologists to measure and compare tumors, nodules and other anatomical structures. This capability speeds the comparison of current and prior cases, which can dramatically improve report turnaround time and help enhance diagnostic accuracy. A power viewer can build a single virtual study with real-time volume matching of all relevant studies (new and prior) to automatically register and synchronize them in one click. The newest native feature is PET/CT reading with full functionality for image manipulation including fusion, synchronized views, standard uptake value and volume matching comparison of current and prior cases. CARESTREAM PACS will now offer the ability to save a 3D view as a bookmark so that this view can be easily shared from a technologist to a radiologist or from a radiologist to a surgeon.

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.
