Philips showcases radiology PACS, CR workstation upgrades
Philips Medical Systems is displaying a number of product upgrades at SCAR for its radiology PACS Easy Access 10.2, as well as new capabilities of its CR workstation, PCR Eleva.
Philips is debuting a number of clinical application upgrades to Easy Access 10.2, including 3D applications, vascular imaging, coronary functions, and also Endo 3D volume rendering.
The new PCR Eleva Workspot for connection to a RIS is also being shown. The product includes a number of workflow benefits such as automation of procedures, instant access to processed images, and is completely network ready. It also features an intuitive touch screen display which is a much "more economical approach" for users, Philips said. This PCT Eleva Workspot is connected to patient lists within a RIS which are quickly viewable with the touch of just a couple buttons on the screen. The touch screen monitor also gives users easily viewable image thumbnails, which can be accessed and manipulated and then sent directly to a PACS. The product has had 4 test installations in the U.S. and Europe and will be fully "street available" in October of this year, Philips said.
