(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) -- PACS vendors in the technical exhibition at ECR 2010 are demonstrating some of the hottest gadgets that will be filling the toolbox of tomorrow’s distributed radiology services.
Facing the intractable problem of stretching finite resources to meet an ever-growing demand, healthcare providers are increasingly seeking regional, or even national, solutions. New technologies offer the hope of being able to maintain quality of service by sharing professional competencies across geographically distant sites. So the leading companies have developed new applications aimed at providing the same advanced diagnostic capabilities wherever and whenever they may be needed.
Philips is showing a whole raft of applications available through its iSite PACS. These include Volume Vision, a tool that allows the radiologist to work with 3D images from multiple modalities, and a range of CT-specific applications, such as CT automated vessel analysis. These technologies are already available as plug-ins accessible on a main workstation, but by being integrated into the PACS, they will now be available throughout the enterprise.
