DeJarnette Research Systems Inc. has released a CT workflow white paper that addresses the issues associated with new high-speed multi-detector CT (MDCT) scanners in a PACS environment.
The free 18 page white paper can be obtained at the DeJarnette website www.dejarnette.com/ctworkflow.htm. Part of the white paper is an analysis of the cost of operational inefficiency associated with current MDCT operations in a PACS environment.
The authors of the white paper relied on data obtained from five clinical sites which have been early adopters of the company's dyseCT workflow engine technology:
- Akron General Medical Center
- UCLA Medical Center
- SUNY Upstate Medical Center
