CoActiv, PenRad Expand Relationship for Mammography PACS Offering

May 11, 2012—CoActiv Medical announces this week at the Health Connect Partners 2012 Radiology and Imaging Center Conference an expanded relationship with PenRad Technologies. The new agreement goes beyond the sales alliance established in November 2011 to now integrate PenRad into EXAM-PACS for seamless delivery of advanced image and information management solutions for women’s imaging.

The new relationship will integrate PenRad workflow into the CoActiv EXAM-PACS and CoActiv EXAM-VAULT, giving mammographers and women’s imaging centers access to the award-winning PenRad reading, workflow and data management environment. “The seamless integration of two award-winning systems provides the best of both worlds (workflow and PACS) to women’s imaging centers across the US,” said Ed Heere, CoActiv President and CEO.

CoActiv has been a leader in PACS and cloud-based image and data storage since 2003. In recent years, the company’s technology has been installed at a large and rapidly growing number of advanced mammography sites, where it supports FFDM, dedicated breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) and more recently DICOM standard breast Tomosynthesis exams. Its state-of-the-art EXAM-VAULT Quad-Redundant cloud-based archiving stores tens of millions of breast images in a full range of modalities, as well as the complete spectrum of other radiology, cardiology, orthopedic and other imaging studies. CoActiv also supports image viewing on a full range of today’s portable devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle Fire.

Greg Gustafson, CEO of PenRad, went on to say, “PenRad prides itself on providing the absolute best reading and information management solutions to customers throughout the United States and Canada. The expansion of our relationship with CoActiv will allow PenRad to reach more customers and allow them to save valuable time and money, all the while increasing the quality of their women’s imaging Program.”

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.
