Women's Imaging Associates Advances Mammography Reporting with AbbaDox RIS

Radiology information system supports patient-centric service for growing teleradiology practice

April 13, 2017 — IDS recently announced Women’s Imaging Associates, a premier teleradiology firm located in Birmingham, Ala., has implemented AbbaDox RIS (radiology information system) including its speech recognition and reporting platform. The system is now live, supporting a full range of screening and diagnostic imaging services the group performs for nearly two dozen healthcare delivery organizations throughout the United States including hospitals, radiology groups and outpatient centers.

Women’s Imaging Associates president and founder Caroline Reich, M.D., Ph.D., opened the practice in 2009 to provide first-class women’s imaging services with the interpretation of 2-D and 3-D mammography, breast ultrasound, breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), obstetrical and pelvic ultrasound.  She is joined by two board-certified radiologists, also breast imaging experts.

Reich had a desire to upgrade her reporting system, which was no longer a good match for her bourgeoning practice. “Technology is an integral component when providing top-quality imaging services,” said Reich. “Click fatigue was setting in, and I longed for more progressive information technology to help me work more efficiently and address new industry guidelines while preserving our high standards of service. With the right technology, I can deliver a consistently high level of service including the delivery of accurate results in the timeliest method.

“We sought an application provider that was innovative and flexible but, more importantly, one that was willing to develop a best-of-breed, comprehensive solution for mammography, breast and women’s imaging services. IDS listened and delivered my ideal solution,” said Reich.

Combined Optical and Molecular Imaging Could Guide Breast-Conserving Surgery

WLE specimen from a patient with a grade 3, ER-/HER2-, no special type (NST) carcinoma. (A) Cerenkov image; (B) Grey-scale photographic image overlaid with Cerenkov signal. An increased signal from the tumor is visible (white arrows); mean radiance is 871 ± 131 photons/s/cm2/sr, mean TBR is 3.22. Both surgeons measured the posterior margin (outlined in blue) as 2 mm (small arrow); a cavity shaving would have been performed if the image had been available intraoperatively. The medial margin (outlined in green) measured >5 mm by both surgeons. Pathology ink prevented assessing the lateral margin; a phosphorescent signal is visible (open arrows). (C) Specimen radiography image. The absence of one surgical clip to mark the anterior margin, and the odd position of the superior margin clip (white arrow) prevented reliable margin assessment. (D) Combined histopathology image from two adjacent pathology slides on which the posterior margin (bottom of image) and part of the primary tumor are visible (open arrows). The distance from the posterior margin measured 3 mm microscopically (double arrow). The medial margin is > 5 mm (not present in image). Credit: A. D. Purushotham, M.D., King’s College London, UK
