At ECR 2013, Carestream will showcase new solutions designed to help radiology professionals improve patient care. These include:

-A new portal that allows patients to electronically access and manage their x-ray exams
-New lesion management tools that can help enhance accuracy in assessing changes in cancerous lesions
-A smaller-format digital radiography detector that provides high-quality, dose-sensitive x-ray images for pediatric, orthopedic, and general radiology exams.

The MyVue patient portal allows patients to electronically access and manage x-ray exams and share that data with specialists and other health care professionals. My Vue is currently available as an option for Vue PACS and Vue Archive users and will be available as a Vue Cloud Service in March 2013. The Vue Cloud Service offers the flexibility of a monthly fee and can accommodate rapid expansion without the need for healthcare facilities to fund and manage network expansions to accommodate additional patient users.
• New lesion management tools can enhance accuracy in assessing changes in cancerous lesions as part of diagnosis and treatment for oncology patients.
• Enhancements to Carestream’s RIS including the storage and tracking of radiation dose information and other capabilities that lay the groundwork to support cumulative dose tracking.
• Also highlighted will be a new non-motorized option for the CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution, a versatile DR system with modular components to meet space, workflow and budget requirements.
• A new module that displays digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) exams from DICOM-compliant acquisition devices on its CARESTREAM Vue Mammo Workstation, where radiologists can also view traditional mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and general radiology exams from a single desktop. The module streamlines workflow by allowing healthcare providers to store, route, display and query/retrieve DBT exams from DICOM-compliant acquisition devices. Comparison tools enable radiologists to use personalized hanging protocols for DBT exams along with other procedures.
