Carestream Health earned its highest ratings in the areas of product flexibility, integration and service and support.

MD Buyline’s user comments about the CARESTREAM PACS include: “virtual desktop has excellent thin-client approach,” “ability to integrate into older RIS systems in unbelievable,” and “web-based product is unmatched in the industry.” Users also said that Carestream Health’s PACS offers a “flexible system for PACS administrators to customize and create new rules” and that the company offers “consistent new enhancements and updates” as well as advanced applications (3D, MPR, VR).
