US-based Rush Memorial Hospital has purchased Carestream’s Vue PACS with 3D vessel analysis, lesion management, Vue Motion image viewer and a mammography module.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had approved Carestream’ Vue Motion image viewer for clinical reading of medical X-ray exams using iPhone 4s, iPad 2, Galaxy Note and Galaxy S III mobile devices.
Carestream Vue PACS offers reading tools that include MPR, MIP, MinIP, volume rendering, tissue definition, vessel tracking and cardiac analysis.
It has an optional embedded lesion management application, which simplifies the comparison process between different data sets and supports oncology follow-up with bookmarking and tracking of general anatomy over time.
Radiologists can read mammography and general radiology procedures from any vendor on a single platform using the Vue Mammo module. Time-saving tools streamline the reading of mammography procedures while simplifying the comparison of prior studies.
Rush Memorial Hospital chief information officer Jim Boyer said that when testing the advanced clinical tools offered by Carestream’s PACS, the hospital’s radiologists said these features could enhance decision making and streamline the process of reading and reporting.
"In addition, the ability to embed links to key images in the report can enhance collaboration with clinicians," Boyer added.
