Technology from Eastman Kodak Co.'s Health Imaging Group will be used during next month's Olympic Games in Athens to send digital images and accompanying reports to Attiko University Hospital in Athens, which will assist in serving Olympic athletes and officials.

The technology includes a Kodak picture archiving and communications system (PACS) and a Kodak radiology information system (RIS) at the Polyclinic and a Kodak PACS/RIS workstation at the University Hospital.

In addition to its PACS/RIS, Kodak's Health Imaging Group will equip the Polyclinic with systems that capture x-rays digitally. Kodak said it has also installed its DirectView DR 9000 System at KAT Hospital, one of the largest trauma treatment hospitals in Greece, which also will assist in serving individuals associated with the Olympic Games.

The Polyclinic is expected to perform medical imaging studies for up to 140 patients a day and to complete more than 2,000 imaging exams over the course of the Games.
