DeJarnette Research Systems has released dyseCT which is intended to decrease the problem of information overload produced by today's high speed, multi-slice CT scanners.
High speed CT scanners produce multiple images within a single acquisition. A PACS (picture archiving communications system) matches these multiple procedure studies to a single order, causing a number of workflow inefficiencies.
The dyseCT addresses this problem by doing the following:
- It identifies multiple procedure studies and modifies the DICOM modality worklist using a group procedure to replace multiple procedures.
- It analyzes the images, associating them with a specific anatomical region automatically and without manual intervention.
- It separates the images in a multiple procedure study and associates those images with the appropriate orders.
The company has demonstrated dyseCT as a work-in-progress at the most recent SCAR (Society of Computer Applications in Radiology) and PACS 2003 conferences. Additional clinical evaluation is underway at PACS sites managed by DeJarnette's Chanel Partners. These will be announced just prior to the annual RSNA (Radiological Society of North America) trade show.
