November 25, 2013 — Intelerad Medical Systems, a medical imaging picturing archiving and communication systems (PACS), radiology information systems (RIS) and workflow solutions developer, announced a technology partnership with Blackford Analysis, a provider of software products that accelerate comparison of medical images. The partnership will see Intelerad incorporate Blackford Analysis technology into its InteleViewer diagnostic imaging viewer.
 
Blackford Analysis’ Blackford MatchedCrosshairs and Blackford AutoSync functionality will enable InteleViewer users to provide instant comparisons of current and prior studies with a single click.
 
Blackford MatchedCrosshairs will enhance InteleViewer to allow users to simply click once on a location in any scan to instantly find the same location in multiple scans from different timepoints and/or different modalities (computed tomography [CT], magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] or positron emissions tomography [PET]).
 
Blackford AutoSync will provide InteleViewer with the ability to perform slice synchronization across multiple exams automatically, regardless of differences in acquisition protocol and patient positioning. This eliminates the often tedious step of manually syncing studies with multiple priors.
 
“Integrating Blackford solutions into InteleViewer is tremendously beneficial to our end users,” said Rick Rubin, chief engineering officer, Intelerad. "Not only does this make a previously tedious and time consuming task of searching for the point of comparison in prior exams simple, quick and painless, but when combined with aggregating technologies like InteleOne and our Master Patient Index, patient care is dramatically improved with a fully longitudinal comparison of a patient's exams without a large time penalty."
