NovaRad Installs Web-Based PACS at Two Imaging Centers

July 30, 2009 – NovaRad is extending its installations in Texas, adding two imaging centers that have recently selected its radiology technologies.

The centers include Forney Diagnostic Imaging Center in Forney, Texas, and West Houston Radiology Associates in Houston, Texas. NovaRad South, a NovaRad distributor, facilitated the contract with this imaging center. Interpreting physicians at the centers will use NovaPACS to support diagnostic reading. Because the PACS is web-based, they will have the flexibility to securely access studies both in and outside the imaging center. An additional factor in the selection decision was the availability of NovaCentral support that enables NovaRad’s customer support team to monitor, in real time, all of the critical functions of the PACS. The remote monitoring serves as a safeguard to ensure uptime and updates for optimal performance of the system. These latest facilities bring the total number of hospitals, clinics and radiology centers using NovaRad technologies in Texas to 18.

NovaPACS is NovaRad’s complete, turnkey PACS offers, according to the manufacturer, fast image retrieval, full-feature viewer with intuitive interface, and 7-year on-site archive with off site emergency back up. Full screen viewing, easy to use menus and mouse-based functions are available to help enhance efficiency and referring physicians have complete access to images and reports from any computer.

Developed on the same platform as NovaPACS, NovaRIS generates reports, measures profitability and facilitates paperless management of patient records.

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.
