PET Infusion, Nuclear Information Systems Integrate

May 20, 2010 – A new partnership enables data communication between Medrad's Intego positron emission tomography (PET) infusion system and Pinestar Technology's Nuclear Medicine Information System (NMIS). The companies are closing the information gap between infusion systems and the information systems, adding to the workflow benefits of automated fludeoxyglucose (FDG) infusion.

The data integration capability can be previewed at the Society of Nuclear Medicine Annual Conference (June 5-9 in Salt Lake City) and will be available for sale in late summer 2010.

The data integration establishes reliable communication of PET infusion schedules and histories, and will be the first of its kind in the market. Facilities are challenged to contain costs, reduce errors, and increase their quality of service, even in the face of increasing procedure volumes. There is growing interest in electronic medical records across all departments, but intelligent communication is needed between systems.

Interfacing Intego with Pinestar's NMIS reduces redundant patient demographic entries and transcription errors. Completed dose records are transferred back to the NMIS after the FDG infusion.
