The IMPAX MA3000 Diagnostic Station is DICOM compliant and supports rapid and simultaneous display of multimodality images. It incorporates a data management system that automatically routes relevant data (e.g., DR mammography, breast MRI, ultrasound) based on a variety of user-definable criteria including modality, patient and referring physician. Relevant prior exams can be pre-fetched from the archive management system and sent automatically to the IMPAX MA3000 station. Radiology results from the RIS can be displayed simultaneously when available. Review and comparison of images can be defined per user and per modality.
Exam Review Station Works to Enhance Diagnostic Process
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.
