Carestream Showcases Works-in-Progress Lesion Management Tools on its PACS Workstation

Company’s lesion management software establishes baseline, automates comparisons from CT, MR exams

July 6, 2012 — Carestream Health showcased works-in-progress lesion management 3-D tools on its Vue PACS (picture archiving and communications system) workstation at the annual “Workstation Face-Off,” held June 18 in San Francisco as part of the annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT.

The new lesion management application enables radiologists to automatically measure a lesion and compare it to previous findings in an MR (magnetic resonance) or CT (computed tomography) scan. Each result can be bookmarked and can include comments and data for easy access. This comprehensive data comparison method is ideal for oncology exams and provides localization, measurements, follow-up and comparison of findings that can help eliminate viewer variation and enhance accuracy.

“Our new lesion management application is designed to significantly enhance assessments of oncology patients by automating access to specific measurements from previous exams,” said Cristine Kao, global marketing manager, healthcare information solutions, Carestream. “In addition to facilitating a faster diagnosis, it can also improve communication and collaboration between radiologists and clinicians.”

The Face-Off is hosted by the International Society of Computed Tomography (ISCT) and requires radiologists to process and interpret several complex CT imaging studies. This year each vendor was asked to present oncology follow-up, brain CTA perfusion, vascular and functional cardiac cases. Four minutes were allowed per case.

Radiologist Michalle Soudack, M.D., head of pediatric radiology at the Safra Children’s Hospital in Israel, presented the cases for Carestream during the event. “MR and CT exams are an integral part of the radiology workflow. Being able to use a PACS workstation with embedded 3-D tools to view complex oncology and cardiac cases is another example of the compelling advantages offered by Carestream’s PACS workstation,” Soudack said. 

Carestream was one of the first companies to have advanced 3-D processing and image analysis tools built into its Vue PACS workstation, with native reporting via digital dictation or voice recognition. Advanced processing capabilities of the PACS platform include: real-time 3-D vessel analysis including automatic abdominal and cardiac vessel segmentation capabilities; automatic registration of volumetric exams including MPR, MIP and MinIP; cardiac exam review; PET (positron emission tomography)-CT reading tools; orthopedic surgical planning; virtual colonoscopy reading and mammography-specific reading tools.
