Viztek enters mobile radiology market
Viztek has outfitted Honda Elements with Viztek Opal-RAD PACS and Kodak Point-of-Care CR.

The Viztek mobile imaging vehicles can also fully support ultrasound technology. The cars are complete with Opal-Multi-Point (Opal-MP), comprised of on-board notebook computers, pre-programmed with Viztek’s Acquire software that automatically pushes images to the radiology practice’s main Opal-RAD server, according to the Jacksonville, Fla.-based company.

Remote radiologists log into the Opal-RAD Web-based PACS, which can be downloaded from a central, to read and dictate directly into the system. The radiology practice can maintain several contracted transcriptionists around the country, who can log in remotely and transcribe exams, Viztek said.

“This web-based technology allows underserved medical facilities, such as remote hospitals, to get quality service with rapid turnaround time,” says Steve Deaton, vice president of sales at Viztek.
