RamSoft Works with Radiologists to Serve Undeveloped Countries

September 18, 2008 - Téléradiologie Sans Frontiéres (TSF), also known as Teleradiology Without Borders, has strengthened diagnostic imaging in several undeveloped countries with the help of RamSoft PACS over the past year.

TSF’s efforts began in 2007 by successfully implementing the RamSoft PACS system, which has rapidly begun to transform the process of interpreting X-rays and CT images.

TSF, a nonprofit organization, was established by Jean-Baptiste Niedercorn, M.D., of Brussels, Belgium, and Gérald Wajnapel, M.D., of Paris, France after recognizing the need for experienced radiologists in countries such as Cameroon, Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

TSF is a volunteer organization whose radiologists review images transmitted to them via the PowerServer PACS and Gateway Router, both developed by RamSoft.

Today, medical personnel in developing countries no longer need transmit X-rays in email attachments. Instead, PACS software donated by RamSoft is enabling them to quickly transmit digitized X-rays, images photographed using high-megapixel digital cameras and CT images recorded to DVD. The result has been enhanced diagnostic capabilities, faster care and improved outcomes, according to RamSoft.

TSF uses four readers based in three countries—France, Luxembourg and Belgium—to evaluate X-ray and CT images, perhaps five to ten difficult cases exported each week by centers that use the PACS. The process is organized, with reports submitted automatically. Using a standard PC and PACS software, users log on to the Internet. Images are transmitted to the central data center. Radiologists interpret images sent to them from a specific country and automatically placed in their worklist.
