Carestream offers CR and miniPACS for
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Carestream
Health, Inc., has launched its new Carestream Image Suite, a
CR/mini-PACS solution designed to meet the imaging needs and budgets of
clinics and physicians’ offices. Image Suite combines selected models of
CR systems with fully featured PACS software that can run on a variety
of PC-based workstations.
Use of standard PCs helps lower costs and delivers greater flexibility
for users. Image Suite is available for order worldwide and is expected
to start shipping in June.
To aid in diagnosis, Image Suite delivers comprehensive image review
capabilities including magnification, annotations, measurements, layout
and other tools. Clinicians can adjust and reprocess raw image data on
the host workstation to enhance visualization capabilities and help
deliver better patient care.
Most mini-PACS systems limit image manipulation capabilities and only
allow window and level adjustments to the processed image. Image Suite
also features Carestream Health’s exceptional image processing software
to further optimize image quality.
Image Suite will include a choice of DirectView Classic CR,
Point-of-Care 140 or Point-of-Care 360 CR readers and will be primarily
sold and serviced by Carestream Health’s channel partners.
Image Suite will also support DICOM storage from other modalities,
including ultrasound, MR, CT and exams from other vendors’ CR systems.
Being able to integrate all types of imaging systems makes the Image
Suite an attractive, scalable solution for general practitioners,
orthopedists, podiatrists, chiropractors, other specialists and clinics.
Processing Software Streamlines Workflow
The system features DICOM store/print/modality worklist and images can
be stored on CDs and hard disk drives. Carestream Health’s processing
software streamlines workflow and provides automatic identification of
body part/projection to eliminate manual data entry.
Image Suite options include: a report/notes template; long-length
imaging software; and up to eight concurrent licenses for web viewing
and/or patient registration. Mammography imaging is supported when the
system is configured with Classic CR Readers in countries where the
Carestream Mammography Feature is approved for use.
Digital images in DICOM/JPEG/BMP/TIFF formats can be imported and the
system can be connected to document scanners for digitization of paper
records. The system also supports output to paper printers.
