eRAD (Booth 6254) is introducing its eRAD RIS/PACS and additional PACS Viewer plug-in modules.

eRAD RIS is the order entry, scheduling, reporting and charge capture add-on to eRAD PACS. Based on the earlier eRAD Scheduler product, which provided scheduling tools to multi-site imaging centers and other providers, eRAD RIS includes billing system integration, transaction logging, results reporting, and automated report fax and email notification. The system includes HL7 interface support to HIS, EMR and other information systems allowing the management of patient demographics, procedures and schedules for multiple imaging facilities from a single user interface. eRAD RIS is available as a part of eRAD’s RIS/PACS product offering.

A Calcium Scoring plug-in module is a new addition to the eRAD PACS cardiac imaging feature set. Calcium scoring allows quick quantification of calcium deposits for early detection of coronary artery disease. The plug-in module is a wizard-like tool that walks the user through identification and classification of calcium deposits. The result is a completed calcium scoring and patient report which can be saved as part of the exam. The entire process can be completed in less than three minutes.

An eRAD PACS Image Fusion plug-in module integrates powerful visualization capabilities into its successful viewer technology. Image fusion combines PET/CT and SPECT/CT structural and functional images sharing complementary spatial resolution characteristics into a single volume. The plug-in module includes tools for orthogonal and volume-oriented views, alpha bending, color spectrum application, and MIP views. Fused images can be saved to the PACS archive, and attached to reports as key images.
