UMCG implements Carestream's Vue PACS platform
Carestream Health has been awarded European PACS tender for the University Medical Centre Groningen (UMCG), one of the largest hospitals in the Netherlands. Carestream's Vue PACS platform will replace existing Agfa web and Rogan PACS systems to enhance radiology workflow together with Vue Motion for mobile viewing of images and reports. Installation is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2012 and be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2013.
Carestream Vue PACS offers integrated advanced visualisation, 3D post-processing, dictation, critical results notification and a mammography module that eliminates the need for dedicated workstations. Native voice recognition, a single sign-on and structured and user-defined reports with embedded patient data combine to take the complexity and manual entry out of diagnostic reporting.
Carestream Vue Motion provides access to imaging data and patient information stored on a PACS or archive using only a web browser or EMR portal. The viewer requires no local installation or software downloads. It is accessible from almost any web-enabled device and is able to display DICOM or non-DICOM data stored in PACS or archives from Carestream or other vendors.
