The latest CARESTREAM RIS features a powerful new radiologist reporting module that improves productivity through an intuitive user interface and a rich feature set. Time saving features include: structured reporting, standard answers and the ability to copy content from prior reports. CARESTREAM PACS delivers a unified virtual desktop with native 3D and advanced applications—such as PowerViewer—that accelerate routine reading by providing automatic registration and volumetric matching of 3D studies.

Carestream Health’s vendor-neutral data archiving solution combines software, non-proprietary hardware, and professional services for consolidation, control, continuity and access to DICOM imaging data as well as other types of patient medical information. The company’s new Web-based CARESTREAM Cardiology PACS offers a single integrated platform for diagnosis, image review and reporting for echocardiography, cardiac catheterization and nuclear cardiology procedures—while its SuperPACS™ Architecture links multi-vendor, multi-site PACS platforms to create an efficient enterprise solution.
