Women's Health Imaging PACS Handles Multiple Modalities

March 18, 2010 - A new women's health imaging picture archive and communication system (PACS) integrated with full-field digital mammography (FFDM) is designed to support imaging and non-image information across multiple modalities.

The Unity Women's Health Imaging PACS handles images and date from the following modalities: digital mammography, digitized prior film-based mammograms, breast MRI, PET/CT, breast ultrasound, CR-mammography, bone density, and nuclear imaging.

The automated platform integrates the following workflows:
- resource-based scheduling
- patient registration and tracking
- technologist image acquisition
- diagnostic reading and clinical review
- automated reporting
- BiRADS, MQSA tracking and mailing
- exam archive
- Web distribution to referring physicians and electronic medical records
- charge capture to a facility's billing system or service
- facility-defined managerial reports

Under the guidance of Michael Trambert, M.D., lead radiologist for PACS reengineering at Sansum-Santa Barbara Medical Foundation Clinic, Santa Barbara, Calif., the clinic went live with an integration of PACS and FFDM in 2004, making it one of the first facilities in the nation to do so. He will speak on his latest findings regarding the integrating FFDM with PACS. The discussion takes places at the National Consortium of Breast Centers (NCBC) held March 20-24, 2010 at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
