PET/CT Fusion Imaging Integrates With PACS

March 29, 2010 - As the applications in nuclear medicine become more widely adopted and a larger part of mainstream imaging, software solutions are integrating positron emission tomography / computed tomography (PET/CT) into picture archiving and communication systems (PACS).

With the latest upgrade of NovaPACS, which supports PET/CT fusion, radiologists are now able to view PET/ CT studies, within the PACS, enabling them to deliver results to patients, while saving time and hardware costs.

Users can send studies to the PACS, and NovaPACS will then display those images in CT, PET and PET/CT-fused series. Each series can be individually windowed and leveled and manipulated series from within the same study. Radiologists can manipulate and work with any modality or combinations of modalities to more quickly and accurately make diagnoses for patients.

Additional enhancements in this latest version of NovaPACS enables assigning of critical values to a given image, study or series. The markings within the image, series and/or study also contain contact information of how the referring physician or facility has been contacted. A report on the critical findings can then be run for compliance and for follow-up contact to the referring physician.
