PACS (Picture Archiving Communications System) Technology
We are proud to use PACS, a patient record system that digitally acquires, stores and retrieves diagnostic images from:
- Nuclear Medicine
PACS allows us to digitize medical images and process them for reading by a radiologist, in a fraction of the time it takes to process film. These images can be viewed by radiologists from a PACS workstation anywhere in the hospital. Additionally, patient images and radiologist's reports can securely be distributed on-demand through the Internet for referring physicians to review.
PACS is comprised of a combination of workstations, servers, and online and offline storage systems networked together and integrated into the hospitalís infrastructure. The servers and storage systems link the images to the patient data and provide long-term secure storage and archiving.
Referring physicians can access these images and the radiologists' reports over the web. No longer do patients have to wait for films to be manually passed through the diagnostic process; diagnosis can be delivered faster and patient care can be started sooner.
