November 19, 2015 — Telemis launched a new version of its popular picture archiving and communication system (PACS) software at the Journées Françaises de Radiologie (JFR) technical exhibition and congress, Oct. 16-19 in Paris. Telemis-Medical PACS version 4.7 offers new tools for radiologists that include a four-dimensional magnetic resonance (MR) examination viewer, integrated tumor follow-up capabilities and a more efficient volume measurement tracking system. The work of clinicians is further simplified through the availability of 3-D visualization and the ability to transfer 360-degree medical imaging.
High levels of built-in functionality mean that Telemis-Medical PACS version 4.7 improves efficiency by reducing the need to switch to third-party imaging solutions. For example, Telemis now offers default and advanced multi-echo MR and multi-phase visualization tools. For oncology pathologies, which represent more than 40 percent of cases where PACS software is used, flexible and user-friendly integrated tumor tracking simplifies the management of histories stored on CD-ROM and the monitoring of progress against CHOI, PERCIST and RECIST criteria. Clinicians will also benefit from a new three-dimensional visualization tool that better represents pathologies and makes explanations to patients easier.
In addition to visualization, version 4.7 also focuses on improved communication. The integration of the "Skype in 1 click" module, for example, improves the dialogue between physicians and, in the case of teleradiology, with imaging technologists. According to Telemis Group CEO Stephane Ketelaer, users can also connect to the Telemis support platform with a single click to request information, participate in discussions on forums or to signal the need for intervention.
