EXAM-PACS Ensures Accurate Image Retrieval

CoActiv EXAM-PACS is designed to show that PACS need not be difficult, hard-to-install and expensive. CoActiv EXAM-PACS reportedly perform a variety of functions— harvest completed digital exams from various DICOM modalities, send exams to workstations, store completed exams and reports to a secure archive and recall archived exams— more quickly, accurately and reliably.

EXAM-PACS aims to assure the most accurate digital images by integrating all DICOM compliant modalities. According to the company, most non-DICOM-based can be upgraded by CoActiv or interfaced through a DICOM gateway.

All DICOM header information is kept completely intact. Any changes in windowing and leveling, annotations, measurements, zoom level, rotation, ROIs and the like are kept in CoActiv's MOD files, which store ancillary information with the original, unmodified images. With multiple MOD files, users can view exams in multiple formats. Additional MOD files can be created for teaching and instructional purposes where HIPAA requires turning off screen annotations.

In addition to detailed logs kept of all exam activity, EXAM-PACS also provides instant access to a complete history file associated with every exam.

Radiologists reportedly can seamlessly attach almost any information, including reports, voice clips, video clips, frame-grabbed selective images, emailed or scanned prescriptions and insurance information. For example, EXAM-PACS allows referring physicians to instantly view the exam report while in the exam viewer window while at the same time listening to the voice file from the transcription.

Another feature is the ability to view exams according to a radiologist’s preference. EXAM-PACS supports versatile monitor configuration, whether vertical or horizontal, and single or multiple. Hanging protocols allow the radiologist to view an image series in the same screen layout consistently, with each exam series in the same location.

EXAM-PACS also supports the fast database retrieval of archived exams— in less than one second for a 250,000 exam archive and less than three seconds for 1 million exam archive, said the company.
