October 1, 2014 — Intelerad Medical Systems launched its new Tomosynthesis Module. Integrated directly into Intelerad’s InteleViewer, the module eliminates the need for dedicated workstations, allowing practices to easily open new revenue streams, while enhancing radiologists’ workflows by allowing them to read tomosynthesis studies from their main workstation.
“At Intelerad, we’ve built a tradition of developing innovative solutions that provide real value to radiology practices,” said Randall Oka, president and CEO, Intelerad. “Our Tomosynthesis Module is no different, as it provides radiology groups with the easiest way to expand their breast imaging offerings and attract new clients, all while improving radiologists’ productivity.”
Evolving from Intelerad’s Breast Imaging module, which provided clinical support for tomosynthesis, the Tomosynthesis Module provides radiologists with the diagnostic functionality they need to fully support the modality. Featuring a number of integrated stacking and comparison tools, the module further drives radiologists’ productivity by quickly retrieving tomosynthesis images in their proper orientation, providing automated layout protocols, and allowing images to be stored locally on their workstation.
“From a clinical perspective, the true benefit of our expanded breast imaging capabilities
is that it will help increase the detection of lesions,” said Rick Rubin, CEO, Intelerad. “The module also improves report turnaround time by allowing users to interact with both 2-D and 3-D data in a familiar workflow, and allowing them to easily interact with referring physicians and leverage reporting tools that are not commonly found in dedicated workstations.”
