Viztek Debuts New Features for Opal-RAD PACS

October 4, 2011 — Viztek will display the newest features of its Opal-RAD picture archiving and communication system (PACS) at RSNA 2011.

Users now have the ability to view images anytime, anywhere on any PC or Apple computer with the new zero-footprint DICOM viewer. The system requires no software download; it features an easy-to-use graphic interface, is accessible over any Internet connection and provides full support for most popular browsers.

The company has also expanded support for positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) viewing with a full range of features; they include multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) and rotational maximum intensity projection (MIP), triangulation display, series synchronization and 3-D point location. 

The Turn-Around-Time (TAT) feature is designed to streamline the workflow of teleradiology practices by prioritizing exams based on a client’s contracted time to perform study reading. The feature uses a color-based system to notify radiologists of the remaining time before a scheduled reading must be completed.  After users input reading time parameters for each facility, worklist population and priority level is fully automatic.

In the specialty image arena, enhanced new mammography features include Comprehensive Priors Logic, which enables users to toggle through multiple levels of mammography priors in sequential order; this allows an easy look at a patient’s full history.

Complementing this is a new Cardiology Clinic Module that enables viewing of dynamic ultrasound video clips and provides automatic access to cardiac measurements.  The application also supports integrated report generation, including object-oriented structured reporting for a full range of cardiology functionalities.

Patient-Level Document Scanning allows documents to be scanned from any location and uploaded to Opal-RAD. Frequently scanned documents include patient history forms, exam order forms and more.  This feature associates documents with the appropriate patient file, eliminate time-consuming faxing and tracking of paperwork.
