Carestream Taking Orders For Enhanced CR Acquisition/Mini-PACS Software

September 12, 2011 – Carestream Health announced it is taking orders for an upgraded version of its Carestream Image Suite Software. This affordable computed radiography (CR)-based image acquisition and mini-picture archive and communications system (PACS) solution performs Web-based patient scheduling, fully featured image review and reporting as well as offering flexible archiving options.

The newest version of Image Suite Software contains specialized tools and functionality to address the needs of urgent care centers, imaging clinics and a broad range of physicians and specialists including orthopedists, podiatrists and chiropractors. This new software, which is scheduled to be available worldwide in October of 2011, does not support mammography applications in the United States.

Image Suite Software’s comprehensive image review capabilities include magnification, annotations, common measurements, multi-format layouts and additional specialty measurement tools. While most mini-PACS systems limit image manipulation by only allowing window/level adjustments to a pre-processed image, Image Suite Software provides comprehensive manipulation of the raw image data. Combined with Carestream’s exceptional DirectView EVP Plus image processing software, users can effortlessly optimize image quality for each exam. Users can output imaging exams to CDs, networked drives, digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) printers and other PACS systems.

Image Suite Software options include: reporting software that allows users to create, edit and view reports attached to studies; DICOM storage for magnetic resonance (MR), computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound exams; long-length imaging software; up to eight concurrent licenses for web viewing and/or patient registration; and advanced measurement tools for chiropractors.

Carestream’s new software delivers compelling advantages, including:

·         Patient scheduling can be performed remotely and multiple images can be requested in a single order.
·         Dual monitor support for Web-based clients enables increased efficiency by allowing practitioners to view multiple images at once, including current and prior images or images from other modalities.
·         Optional reporting software is available for Web-based users as well as clinicians at the primary workstation, which expedites secondary or specialty exam reading; and
·         Images from CT, MR and ultrasound and other CR systems can be imported for image viewing and storage. The flexibility to integrate other imaging modalities expands the utility of Image Suite Software and enables it to serve a diverse user base.
Image Suite Software can be packaged with a choice of DirectView Classic CR, DirectView Vita/Vita LE/Vita SE CR or Carestream’s Point-of-Care systems. Image Suite Software can run on a variety of standard PC-based workstations to help lower costs and deliver greater flexibility for users.

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
