PACS-Advanced Visualization Takes on Dedicated 3-D Solutions

May 20, 2010 - The International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT held May 19 in San Francisco, Calif., hosted the “Workstation Face-Off,” which challenged providers of advanced 3-D image processing technologies to process and interpret three complex computed tomography (CT) imaging studies.

This year’s studies included CT colonography, a cardiac case and assessment of liver lesions. Carestream Health analyzed all cases on its PACS workstation. The other providers used dedicated 3-D processing stations or servers, some of which employed specialized processing hardware.

The Carestream PACS workstation can be used for visualization and analysis of volumetric MDCT data. The solution has disparate processing and image analysis tools integrated into its PACS workstations. The native 3-D software on the PACS is designed to enhance efficiency, as workflow is streamlined since radiologists do not need to go to dedicated 3-D workstations.

“Carestream PACS saves me time, since I don’t need to move either the images or myself to a dedicated post-processing workstation,” Michalle Soudack, M.D., head of pediatric radiology at the Edmond and Lily Safra Children’s Hospital in Israel, who presented cases for Carestream Health during the event.

In addition, the company's PACS architecture enables 3-D and other advanced features, along with its intuitive user interface, to be used on any workstation inside or outside the facility.

Advanced processing capabilities on the platform include automatic abdominal and cardiac vessel segmentation capabilities and automatic registration of volumetric exams. It has maximum performance running (MPR), maximum intensity projection (MIP), MinIP, volume rendering and complete vessel analysis. Other features includes cardiac application, virtual colonoscopy, PET-CT, mammography and orthopedic-templating applications.
