ScImage Showcases Variety of PACS/RIS Workflow Solutions

ScImage will feature several new and enhanced technologies at RSNA 2008, including the PicomVoice Pro. This suite of reporting and data entry tools uses an embedded voice recognition engine and can be implemented using a variety of methods and preferences that utilize text-templates, voice-templates, structured reporting, free form reporting or any combination thereof. This integrated approach reportedly streamlines the cumbersome workflow of multiple systems with multiple logins by providing an embedded voice recognition engine into one product.

ScImage’s interoperability solutions leverage the experience and technology development of its Veterans Health Administration contract to bring industry-leading interoperability solutions to civilian diagnostic imaging. Built on a Web-based workflow management foundation with automatic study routing and prior pre-fetching, the solution employs business and clinical rules that reportedly enable a high degree of interoperability between a large number of existing, vendor-neutral, RIS and PACS solutions. The result is a unified worklist that provides real time bi-directional exam status and the ability to finalize diagnostic reports and deliver results back to the originating system, said the company.

ScImage will also introduce a “zero-footprint” physician portal called PicomWeb. The portal will deliver images, reports, waveforms and documents to web browsers. Caregivers can simply browse to their patients’ images and data for non-diagnostic review, and access. Standard image manipulation tools are available in normal window view, or full screen view. Diagnostic users can easily switch to full diagnostic viewing with a single click from PicomWeb. PicomWeb can be implemented as part of your PicomEnterprise, as a unifying layer for multiple disparate systems, or as an embedded link in an electronic medical record system using the ScImage Universal Interface Toolkit. The result is a single point of entry for all of your physicians’ to access image and reporting information.

ScImage will demonstrate the newly added cardiology imaging capabilities. New are several enhancements that include; structured reporting for echocardiography and vascular procedures, a clinical information database, voice recognition enhanced reporting, DICOM modality worklist-driven ECG management and automatic pre-fetch of cardiac CT and thoracic CR/DR exams stored on its multi-departmental PACS.

The new reporting module, PICOM Structured Reportware (PicomSR), for echocardiography combines structured reporting elements along with voice recognition. This delivers a pre-populated report that the technician can start by importing elements such as procedure descriptions, indications, measurements, observations during procedure and simple findings from the modality. The physician can finish the report by adding their non-structured conclusions at the end of the report via built-in voice recognition. This solution automates the most common tasks while reportedly maintaining the flexibility required by physicians.

PicomCIM is a clinical database that gathers measurement and demographic data from multiple modalities for statistical reporting and accreditation purposes. This clinical information management solution is an open database solution. This allows for limitless customization for a site to gather the types of data specific to their environment. The result is a solution that can be used for cross-modality outcomes analysis in a variety of settings, said the company.

ScImage continues to improve on its Web-based Gated SPECT viewing capabilities by implementing automatic display normalization and the ability to adjust the window/level of the stress series, the rest series or both independently.
