March 6, 2007 - Sun Microsystems introduced two OEM offerings, iPACS and uPACS, integrated and utility picture archiving and communication systems, which are available in different sizes and designed as an integrated platform to enable OEMs and system integrators to rapidly build and implement PACS, last week at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in New Orleans.
Sun Microsystems Presents New PACS
Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
