Kodak offers archiving solution for mammography
Eastman Kodak Company demonstrated at RSNA 2006 in Chicago its CARESTREAM Information Management Solutions that accommodates archiving requirements specific to mammography. Kodak showed how these solutions provide automatic, intelligent clinical information lifecycle management for the large data sets associated with mammography exams, and maintain quick access to prior exams necessary for comparisons. Storage of data in a patient-centric manner facilitates preservation and access to information. Cost-effective pricing structures, including a Kodak-hosted service offering, accommodate the financial needs of mammography centers.
The Virtual Access Desktop for KODAK CARESTREAM Radiology Solutions is an entry-level workstation designed to optimize workflow by enabling healthcare facilities and satellite locations to efficiently view and output patient images captured with KODAK computed radiography (CR) or digital radiography (DR) systems. It helps facilitate the transition to a digital environment by equipping technologists, medical staff and clinical users with basic image review, advanced printing capabilities and short-term storage. Tools include edge enhancement to improve visualization of bone and lung structure, a scrolling feature needed to view long-length CR images, and true-size printing. In addition to printing to radiographic film, images can also be output to CD with the purchase of optional CD distribution software. The Virtual Access Desktop is available worldwide and can be purchased from Kodak’s Health Group or from its channel partners and distributors.
