Carestream Scientists and researchers from leading medical schools will be presenting scientific papers regarding innovative advances in medical imaging
“How to Future-Proof Your X-ray and Health IT Purchases with Modular Systems” is the title of an interactive discussion, which will be held as part of the annual meeting and exhibit of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and hosted by medical imaging and healthcare IT experts from Carestream at 15:45 hrs on Monday, December 2 at the RSNA Exhibitor Product Theatre.
Carestream’s Cristine Kao, Global Healthcare IT Product Marketing Director, and Helen Titus,Global X-ray Product Marketing Director, will lead the session and will showcase healthcare providers that are already using modular systems. Representing next-generation technology these systems helps avoid major platform upgrades, which are often time consuming and expensive.
The session is targeting attendees who seek objective insight on migrating from outdated X-ray and IT systems to powerful modular platforms, which will be easily expandable and able to offer new capabilities and services. Ample opportunity for audience participation will be a featured part of this session.
Furthermore, Carestream scientists will also participate in two presentations showcasing innovative medical imaging research that is conducted at prestigious medical schools:
•Scientists from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Carestream will present, “Use of a Dedicated Extremity Cone-Beam CT Scanner for Evaluation of the Weight-Bearing and Non-Weight-Bearing Knee,” from 10:50 hrs on Tuesday, December 3 in Room S403A. Findigns from this study show that weight-bearing CBCT of the knee can provide functional information and precise morphological analysis in cross sectional imaging otherwise not achieved by projection radiographs.
•Scientists from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and Carestream will present, “Stationary Chest Tomosynthesis System using Distributed CNT X-ray Source Array,” from 10:50 hrs on Tuesday, December 3, in Room S404AB. Results of this study demonstrate the feasibility of a stationary chest tomosynthesis system that can help improve image quality and enhance detection of small lung nodules and other chest pathology.
Carestream representatives will also be available in the RSNA Mobile Connect area (Lakeside Ballroom) on Monday, December 2, at 9:00 hrs and again at 15:00 hrs on Wednesday, December 4, to assist physicians in understanding how to achieve the greatest productivity from their mobile devices.
Carestream will demonstrate its latest medical imaging and healthcare IT solutions at Booth #4111 in the South Building as part of the exhibit conducted concurrently with the RSNA annual meeting.
