PACS Workstation Proves Worthy at 3D 'Workstation Face-Off'

May 19, 2008 - Carestream Health's PACS workstation with on-board 3D tools completed all clinical imaging exams within the allotted timeframe in the "Workstation Face-Off" at Stanford University's 10th Annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT in Las Vegas, challenging providers of advanced 3D image processing technologies to process and interpret four complex computed tomography (CT) imaging studies.

This year's studies included virtual colonoscopy; PET-CT and CT lung; brain CTA and perfusion (over low bandwidth); and cardiac CT. Carestream Health was the only equipment provider to analyze all cases on its Web-based PACS workstation. The other six providers used specialized, dedicated 3D processing stations, some of which employed special processing hardware.

Carestream Health was reportedly the first in the industry to begin integrating disparate processing and image analysis tools onto its PACS workstations. In addition, the CARESTREAM PACS architecture enables 3D and other advanced features to be used on any workstation inside or outside the facility, according to the company.

Advanced processing capabilities of the CARESTREAM PACS platform include: MPR, MIP, MinIP, volume rendering, complete vessel analysis, cardiac application, virtual colonoscopy, tissue definition tools, automatic bone and bed removal, volume matching, volume viewer, PET-CT, lung application and CT brain perfusion.

The company has redeployed these advanced 3D capabilities into a new turnkey 3D solution for healthcare facilities that have not yet implemented PACS and for current PACS users with limited or no 3D capabilities. The new CARESTREAM Virtual 3D Solution is available as either a standalone workstation or as a workgroup configuration that permits multiple user access to server-based software from existing workstations. The Virtual 3D Solution will be available for order by U.S. customers in June.

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. (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.
