RSNA: Carestream spotlights RIS/PACS updates
News Release Carestream Health (Booth #211) is demonstrating updates to its Carestream RIS platform, as well as its SuperPACS Architecture, at the 2009 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference.

The company said its RIS platform, which will be available for order by the end of the year, includes strategic management reports that display staff and resource utilization. The RIS also has interactive voice dictation and voice command/control as well as the capability to select a standardized report based on a procedure, and pre-populate patient and exam information. The product also allows a centralized staff of schedulers to view availability of rooms, equipment and personnel across multiple locations. In addition to mammography tools, the RIS also delivers critical results notification.

According to Carestream, its SuperPACS Architecture equips radiologists in onsite or remote location to read from a global worklist created from multiple vendors’ PACS located throughout an enterprise, or cross-site. Using tunneling technology, data-intensive studies can be delivered to radiologists on demand from any location, and do not require pre-fetching or pre-archiving of the image data to a central location. SuperPACS Architecture supports a Master Patient ID using IHE profiles, the firm said.
