What tools and tactics are making breast imaging specialists and clinicians more efficient across the healthcare enterprise? Four radiologists discuss the breast imaging PACS features they rely on to save time, enhance accuracy of interpretation, display multimodality images quickly and intuitively, and integrate multiple facilities and multiple PACS. See what next-generation technology offers today. Learn from these experts about:

     • How one workstation and fewer clicks mean quicker read-times—up to 30 percent faster

     • Why instant messaging improves radiologist-technologist communication

     • How tumor boards benefit from immediate access to images

     • Why integrated PACS and dictation helps speed reports to referring physicians

The video webinar includes a question and answer session with the expert panel.
