Rochester, N.Y.’s Carestream Health Inc. has launched a new Web-based cardiology PACS. The company says the product, which will be available by the end of September, offers a single integrated platform for diagnosis, image review and reporting for echocardiography, cardiac catheterization and nuclear cardiology procedures as well as electrocardiogram management.
Designed to consolidate cardiac lab systems into a centralized solution, Carestream says its cardiology PACS provides greater efficiency and lower costs. The client also enables productive reading of cardiology data from any on-site or off-site networked PC, it says.
According to the company, the new features include:
- Structured reporting templates for all cardiovascular applications (cath, echo, vascular and nuclear) with point-and-click access to pre-defined statements along with digital signatures. Reports can be distributed using HL7, e-mail, automatic print or fax transmissions.
- Measurement tools for echocardiography applications, including the ability to import measurements taken at the modality. The platform also delivers specialized echocardiography features, including automatic quad screen display for stress echo exams and automatic DICOM calibration.
- An ECG management solution that includes a worklist and the ability to integrate to multi-vendor ECG carts.
