DHIMS 2008 Takes the Stage

December 7, 2007 – The University of Rochester, Department of Imaging Sciences 8th Annual Digital Healthcare Information Management System (DHIMS) Conference, formerly PACS, will be held March 25 through March 29, 2008 in San Antonio, TX, at The Westin La Cantera Resort.

The five-day conference titled “Getting Connected in Radiology…Interoperability & Workflow,” will tackle solving problems that impact interoperability, workflow and communications within Radiology and between Radiology and the other departments and healthcare personnel in the healthcare enterprise.

Conference focus has changed from an image-oriented meeting to an information-oriented meeting, directed to healthcare facilities, community hospitals and outpatient imaging facilities and academic centers, as well as the vendors that provide their clinical application solutions and hardware.

The show will begin with a day-long PACS Primer covering the ABCs of implementing a digital environment and the impact it will have on workflow and productivity of radiologists, technologists, PACS Administrators and referring physicians. The PACS Primer will provide a good foundation for those considering becoming a PACS Administrator, those needing a basic refresher course or a technology update on the essentials of operating in a digital environment.

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.
