November 22, 2016 — With the completion of several new installations, Ikonopedia will highlight its strong growth in 2016 at the 102nd Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in Chicago. The company will also showcase its suite of breast imaging reporting tools for screening and diagnostic modalities including mammography, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the booth of Konica Minolta, who is an integration partner.
Recent installations include such sites as CareFirst Imaging in Ocala, Fla.; The Outpatient Diagnostic Center, Beaumont, Texas; Suffolk Medical Imaging, Lake Grove, N.Y.; and Medical Arts Radiology, Long Island, N.Y.
Building on the successful completion of its first completely remote installation of its structured breast reporting software earlier this year, many of Ikonopedia's recent installations have been completed remotely. Also this year, Ikonopedia successfully completed its installation at Charlotte Radiology, one of the largest mammography providers in the country. Implementing its comprehensive suite of breast imaging software tools, the installation is designed to help streamline processes, improve reporting efficiency and optimize facility operations across the Charlotte Radiology enterprise.
Installation is also underway at Medical Arts Radiology, one of the largest medical imaging practices in Long Island. Seven of Medical Arts' nine sites have dedicated women's imaging centers. With an active and expanding women's imaging service, the partners recognized the need to upgrade their existing reporting system, which was outdated, labor-intensive and had potential for human error. Barry Morgenstern, M.D., director of breast imaging at Medical Arts Radiology, said, "Ikonopedia represents the best software solution to address all of our clinical needs with a cloud-based system capable of overcoming geographical restrictions."
According to Morgenstern, the Ikonopedia features that sold the practice included enhanced patient care workflow, a user-friendly reporting interface designed by radiologists for radiologists, tablet entry of patient data by staff, integration of risk assessment tools such as Tyrer-Cuzick, and customization of reporting.
Ikonopedia is a structured breast reporting and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) management system designed to dramatically improve reporting efficiency, and optimize facility operations. All findings are saved as discrete data, which allows Ikonopedia to prevent errors, maintain Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS)-compliant language and automate many time-consuming processes.
Ikonopedia makes it possible to eliminate laterality errors, automatically choose exam-appropriate patient letters and pull forward findings from past exams, along with many other time-saving features. Built on modern technology, Ikonopedia employs a closed-loop follow-up system to make sure that no patient can ever get lost in the shuffle of a busy clinic.
