GE Healthcare and Intermountain Healthcare have announced a contract for the implementation of GE’s Centricity Radiology Solution, a combined RIS/PACS solution formerly known as IDX Imagecast, in 21 institutions across Intermountain Healthcare’s network. When complete, the installation will mark the largest GE centralized PACS installation in the U.S.
Largest GE-Centralized PACS Installation in U.S.
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.
