GE Healthcare has introduced the next-generation Centricity RIS/PACS 3.0. which handles the demands of high volume departments, large stand-alone hospitals, and even entire hospital networks. Centricity RIS/PACS 3.0 conforms to IHE standards, and integrates RIS and PACS data seamlessly into a user based solution for radiologists, clinicians and technologists. Centricity PACS AW Suite, a new application, gives clinicians tools for sifting through most data-intensive procedures - optimising workflow, image quality, applications flexibility and reporting speed.
“Centricity RIS/PACS is more than a combination of discrete RIS and PACS functions. It is the truly integrated technology for image and information management in radiology. In bringing together all of GE’s strengths and experience in information technology, imaging, and process improvement, it thereby creates a radiology solution focused on information and workflow needs,” said Juergen Reyinger, General Manager at GE Healthcare Information Technologies EMEA.
Key features include fast image storage and display of large datasets coming from multi-slice CTs. To take advantage of the new developments in modalities like 64 slice CT, GE provides advanced applications beyond the basic 3D inside a PACS, such as for advanced colonography and advanced vessel analysis.
