December 4, 2008 – NightRays Teleradiology launched its VidRay software solution at RSNA this week, which allows radiologists to create an e-mail capable audio/video report to more quickly and accurately explain findings.
The company said it is the first software solution of its kind and provides an easier way to send a concise, easy to understand report to patients and doctors, in addition to the written reports, which sometimes take time to read and match up with images. The software is currently available on NightRay’s Radiology Information System.
During the dictation session, the radiologist can toggle between usual dictation and the VidRay interface to capture audio/video recording of crucial study findings. The radiologist can explain the image while scrolling through images and using the mouse to point out highlights. The file is saved with the report. When a clinician reviews the report and images, they can also play the streaming video.
The company plans to expand VidRay in 2009 so it can be used on other radiology information systems.
