Major Hospital in Shelbyville, Ind, has purchased and installed an upgrade to the latest edition of the Carestream Vue PACS to make use of several advanced features. The system includes a Vue Motion image viewer, a lesion management application, and a mammography module to incorporate mammography exams into the existing reading workflow.

“With these new systems, radiologists and referring physicians working remotely gain easier, faster access to imaging studies and reports and the ability to use advanced tools, which can enhance patient care,” said Linda Skillman, radiology director of Major Hospital.

The facility will also eliminate its dedicated mammography workstation, opting to have radiologists read mammography exams and other images on a Vue PACS workstation with five megapixel monitors. “Our radiologists appreciate the ability to read mammography and general radiology exams from the same PACS workstation,: Skillman said. “Carestream offers specialized mammography reading tools that our radiologists use as well as other efficiencies that are not possible when they are reading from a standalone mammography workstation.”
