Prime Radiology Selects Viztek for New Imaging Center

January 3, 2011 – Prime Radiology has selected Viztek to supply integrated radiology IT products and computed radiography (CR) hardware for a new imaging center in Edison, N.J. The multi-modality site, which will have five radiologists, will install Viztek’s Opal-RAD Web-based PACS, Opal-RIS Web-based RIS and billing software.

“We plan to read exams from multiple locations and to communicate images and reports electronically to referring physicians,” said Suresh Mody, M.D., president of Prime Radiology. He noted that in addition to CR, the center will also offer computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound exams as well as digital mammography, echocardiology and bone densitometry. “As a new center, we needed to purchase and install a large amount of technology at one time. Viztek offered us a fully integrated state-of-the-art system that fit our budget that made sense to purchase and install it immediately.”

The application suite and CR will be installed fully integrated and will include a built-in voice recognition system.

“Once the technology is in place, our center will be up and running,” he said. “We will not need to worry about interfacing disparate systems.”

Currently, Prime Radiology is based in St. Michael’s Hospital in Newark, N.J. where it is responsible for all exam reading. Once the new center opens, the radiologists will rotate between the hospital and the new location.

In the future, Mody plans to expand services by offering a range of sub-specialty exams to be read by contracted remote radiologists.
