Viztek Adds Auto-Routing Feature to Opal-RAD PACS

January 9, 2008 - Viztek introduced to its Opal-RAD Web-based PACS an OnCall auto-routing feature that delivers designated exams to a Web-enabled PC to enable flexible reading, allows users to define where and when particular types of studies will be automatically pushed over the Internet, without any pre-planned setup or IT coordination.

The feature allows exams for a specific modality or involving a specific anatomical region to be auto-routed to a radiology sub-specialist who reads from a remote office or at home. All studies can be sent to a teleradiology group anywhere worldwide for real-time or after hours reading.

OnCall does not require an advanced set up, users log into the Opal-RAD application from any Web-enabled PC and activate the OnCall feature to begin immediate exam download. During a work session, all newly acquired exams matching the user’s criteria are automatically sent to this remote computer for immediate availability with no wait time. All user worklists are instantly updated as reading is completed. The system enables server-based accountability to ensure that all exams are available for reading, dictation and transcription in a timely fashion.

To ensure secure image communication, the Opal-RAD OnCall application establishes an encrypted link between the server and remote computer, eliminating the need to create a virtual private network (VPN) tunnel for image routing. Used as communications link on numerous other PACS applications.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

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.

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.
