Carestream Displays New Dose Capture and Tracking Enhancements For Its Vue RIS Platform

GENEVA, Switz., February 12 — Carestream will showcase the latest enhancements to its Vue RIS including the storage and tracking of radiation dose information at #ECR2013.

“We are laying the groundwork to support cumulative dose tracking, which is an important patient care initiative worldwide,” said Cristine Kao, Carestream’s Global Marketing Manager for Healthcare Information Solutions. “Our RIS tracks and displays dose history by capturing exposure information from the modality. In the future we will be able to allow physicists at user sites to enter formulas that can be used to calculate dose and ultimately track cumulative dose for each patient.”

Carestream’s Vue RIS provides: embedded voice recognition; critical results reporting; and centralised patient scheduling and management reports that track patient referrals by physician and modality reading by each radiologist. RIS management tools provide profitability rates for each modality, patient wait times and volumes by modality or location, and the ability to examine imaging workflows to eliminate bottlenecks or unnecessary tasks. A native peer review feature tracks reviews of an original diagnosis by a second radiologist and it also provides specialised auditing/tracking functions for mammography exams.
