INFINITT North America Adds 'ED Note' Functionality to PACS

February 12, 2009 - INFINITT North America has added new features and applications to the INFINITT PACS, extending its clinical usefulness across the enterprise.

ED Note functionality allows ED physicians and technologists to include comments and questions when sending images to the radiologist, and enables the radiologist to include his notes in response. This can reportedly be valuable during off hours, when the radiologist interprets the exam from home or when the attending physician is not available the following day.

Every department in the hospital that uses medical images has its own workflow and access/distribution requirements. In the ED, where approximately 64 percent of all patients require diagnostic imaging services, accuracy, time savings and communication with the diagnostician are of high importance. Infinitt's ED Note feature adds convenience and a greater degree of confidence for the radiologist interpreting images, said the company.

Infinitt's ED Note module also streamlines reporting with checkboxes and radio buttons, and provides Note Tracking and Note Statistics functionality. The radiologist can indicate a discrepancy between his assessment and the clinician's with one mouse click, bringing it to others' immediate attention and enabling an administrator to track the results of discrepancies.

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.

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.
