Demonstrations Show Off PACS' New 3-D Capabilities

February 14, 2011 – The 3-D capabilities of a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) workstation were revealed at the Fifth Scanner Volumique Conference, held Jan. 24-25, in Nancy, France. The Carestream PACS was demonstrated at the event, which provides a platform for showing live demonstrations of the latest versions of CT image post-processing software.

This was the first time that it included a PACS console.

Orly Goitein, M.D., head of cardiovascular imaging at the Sheba Medical Center, Tel Aviv, Israel, carried out three live demonstrations using the Carestream PACS, which included cardiac, vascular and oncology cases. These case presentations fully demonstrated the latest improvements to the console, some of which are still undergoing development.

“The capabilities of the Carestream PACS workstation are impressive,” Goitein said. “The automatic volumetric multi-modality registration of prior exams allows fast, easy and efficient study comparison, which are daily tasks radiologists deal with. The dedicated post processing packages (for example: the cardiac, vascular and oncology packages) offer advanced reconstruction tools inherent within this PACS workstation system.”

Integrating 3-D image processing and image analysis tools into PACS workstations has led to marked enhancements in workflow since radiologists no longer need to go to a special workstation dedicated to post-processing. The Carestream PACS architecture enables the use of 3-D functions via its intuitive user interface from any workstation, inside or outside the facility.

Advanced processing capabilities include: automatic segmentation of all vessels (including cardiac vessels), automatic volume synchronization of different exams, multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) (MIP/MinMIP/CurveMPR), volume rendering, Stenosis quantification and aneurysm assessment, measurement of cardiac ejection fraction, CT/MR/PET image fusion, lesion detection and quantification and specialized measurement tools for mammography and orthopedics.
