DBT and PACS

Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is one of the most exciting new technologies in breast imaging, but will installing a DBT unit choke up your PACS network? Managing DBT from the IT angle is the subject of a new column in our PACS Digital Community by imaging informatics expert Dr. David Clunie.

Dr. Clunie reviews the challenges behind DBT, mainly due to file sizes that are much larger than those used in full-field digital mammography. Find out what the challenges are and how to solve them by clicking here, or visit our PACS Digital Community at pacs.auntminnie.com.

VNAs and $$$

While we're on the subject of PACS, check out this article on how vendor-neutral archives (VNAs) can save you money and improve efficiency in your enterprise, based on the experience of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Chris Tomlinson, administrative director for radiology at CHOP, spoke on the topic at this week's regional meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine, and senior editor Erik L. Ridley was on hand to report.
