NovaRad and Digisonics have released a combined PACS and Cardiovascular Reporting System (CRS) for cardiovascular labs, hospitals and other sites.
The web-based system provides anytime, anywhere access to radiology studies for clinical reporting workflow, and creates standards-based reports for all cardiovascular modalities, according to the American Fork, Utah-based NovaRad. Data from the imaging modalities, including measurements and velocities, are sent to the CRS database where it generates the patient record and initiates the preliminary clinical findings based upon the measurements and calculations. The interpreting physician reviews, edits and then electronically signs the report, which a faxes/emails/prints a copy to the referring physician.
The new system is offered through a partnership between NovaRad and the Houston-based Digisonics, a provider of cardiovascular image management and clinical reporting systems.
NovaRad said that the CRS allows the clinical user to manipulate the reports without direct assistance from the software provider. NovaPACS enables fast image retrieval, full-feature viewer with interface, and seven-year onsite archive with offsite emergency backup. Screen viewing, menus and mouse-based functions are available for referring physicians have access to images and reports from any computer.
