Getting images via health information exchange represents a unique technical challenge—and opportunity for collaboration.
Join Dr. Dinesh Thavendiranathan of the University of Toronto for a discussion on 3D volume echocardiography in the left heart.
Radiology departments have been seeking ways to work better-managing images from multiple PACS and multiple departments and seeking to increase radiologists' reading efficiency by delivering more information to their workstation. In a world of disparate PACS and multi-ology images, the notion of a universal workstation to deliver patient results efficiently is both a necessity and now - a reality.
Radiology departments have been seeking ways to work better—managing images from multiple PACS and multiple departments and seeking to increase radiologists' reading efficiency by delivering more information to their workstation.
