June 7 - NovaRad Corp. will release NovaPACS 6.6 with embedded MIP (maximum intensity projection) and MPR (multiplanar reconstruction) tools to build and view 3-D images directly from the PACS workstation at SIIM 2007.
The MIP and MPR tools embedded in NovaPACS reportedly eliminate the need for radiologists to do post-processing reconstructions from the modalities and for technologists to redo reconstructions specified by the radiologists. Radiologists can now quickly reconstruct any study they want in any format they want right from NovaPACS.
Additionally, BIOPOD, a HIPAA-compliant fingerprint touch login solution is now available for NovaPACS and its companion radiology information system, NovaRIS. The secure touch login eliminates the need for passwords and frees IT department personnel from managing password requests and changes, freeing them to work on other IT tasks.
