Two PACS Installed in South Nigeria to Improve TB Detection

March 27, 2008 – Viztek installed two of its Web-based Opal-RAD PACS in health clinics in Southern Nigeria, in hopes of improving the detection of tuberculosis and the delivery of quality medical care in extremely remote geographic areas.

Sold and installed in cooperation with Texas-based medical equipment dealer CIMS, the new fully digital installations also include Kodak’s Point of Care (POC) 140 CRs, film digitizers and Quantum X-rays.

Viztek’s Opal-RAD PACS allows radiologists dictate reports directly to exam files, while AnyModal CDS captures and comprehends clinical information from dictation, transforming it directly into accessible, retrievable and shareable electronic files. The technology utilizes speech understanding to reportedly deliver highly accurate, complete documents with meaning and context. Audio files are available for review locally or by any authorized user anywhere over the Internet.
