CoActiv Features EXAM-PACS Support for Breast-Specific Gamma Images, RT Data

CoActiv offers EXAM-PACS support for a range of emerging imaging modalities and new imaging–related workflow.

EXAM-PACS features support of breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) files generated by Dilon Technologies molecular breast imaging gamma cameras and other similar devices. BSGI utilizes specialized breast imaging protocols and new high-resolution nuclear medicine gamma cameras specifically engineered for breast applications to visualize disease through the functional uptake of a radiotracer. Integration and proper display of nuclear medicine files has traditionally been a significant challenge for most PACS vendors.

Images can be displayed side by side with digital mammography, breast ultrasound and breast MRI images on the same workstation.

EXAM-RT Archive is a digital viewing, archiving and retrieval platform for a full range of radiation therapy-related information. Supporting all seven DICOM-RT extensions, the application saves CT images, cone beam images, CMS radiation therapy plans and DICOM-RT data to a single integrated patient file for streamlined access and management.

This HIPAA-compliant RT data can share the same archive and patient demographic information as a radiology PACS and other healthcare IT systems, reportedly minimizing system costs as well as support and maintenance expense. CoActiv EXAM-RT already has been validated in cancer centers for IMPAC radiation oncology systems.

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.
