Carestream  Vue PACS - 3Carestream, Rochester, NY, showcased the CARESTREAM Vue PACS workstation with streamlined reading, processing, and reporting of imaging studies at the “Workstation Face-Off,” which is part of the annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT. Held recently in San Francisco, the event was hosted by the International Society of Computed Tomography (ISCT).

Competitors were challenged to demonstrate how workstations can augment diagnosis and communication with clinicians and patients. Carestream was able to demonstrate how its unified backend architecture, automated 3D processing, and interactive reporting, improve the interpretation process, data exchange, and collaboration between radiology stakeholders.

“Radiology is now focusing on value-based imaging so it was only appropriate for the organizers to feature the various communication tools,” said Cristine Kao, Carestream’s global marketing director for healthcare information solutions. “Carestream has developed a radiology workspace that can elevate the value of the result through advanced processing and interactive reporting.”

Carestream continues to be the only vendor with a PACS workstation that can complete all cases at the annual Workstation Face-Off. This year’s cases included: carotid stenosis vs. occlusion; chest aortic coarctation; cirrhosis; radial artery occlusion; and sigmoid volvulus.

Carestream’s newest native Vue Reporting module inserts interactive hyperlinks to images or tables that display key anatomical features directly from the report.

“Interactive, multimedia reports, with live key images and hyperlinks to images and priors increase the value clinicians get from radiology reports and may shorten the time required to achieve patient treatment decisions,” said Menashe Benjamin, Carestream’s vice president of healthcare information solutions.
