WebWorks QC Corrects Studies with Emerging IOCM Standard

Technologists can make changes from stnadardized worklists from anywhere they can access a browser

December 30, 2014 — Brit Systems announced the release of WebWorks QC, an optional module for the company’s WebWorks zero footprint image browser that provides advanced study quality control (QC) functionality. Designed to return results via the emerging Image Object Change Management (IOCM) standard, it allows changes to studies to be made in one place with the results automatically returned to multiple servers, such as to a picture archive and commuinication system (PACS) and a vendor neutral archive (VNA), keeping them synchronized. Brit highlighted WebWorks QC at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 30-Dec. 4 in Chicago.

WebWorks QC allows technologists to correct studies from anywhere they can access a browser. QC worklists can be readily shared among multiple technologists and once a study is QC’ed, it can be returned to all servers that store a copy via the emerging IOCM standard.

Until now, quality control workstations were the purview of expensive, dedicated workstations. And, once a study was corrected, each copy of it would need to be manually stored back to its server. For example, a study corrected in a PACS had to be erased from the VNA and then resent. This resulted in systems getting out of synchronization.

WebWorks QC supports matching an order with a study, deleting images, rearranging images and series and moving images from one study and/or patient to another, all via a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface. The original patient information is stored within the image and the original study can be restored at any point in time from within the QC server. Users can easily anonymize and edit studies to use them as a training aid in teaching and research. The QC server can also act as the browser-based viewer, making the study available anywhere.
