Road to RSNA 2007: PACS Preview - - October 25, 2007

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

Continuing trends in evidence at recent RSNA meetings, PACS vendors are coming to Chicago highlighting expanded support for clinical applications, as well as workflow improvements.

With the ongoing increase in the amount and complexity of image data, many firms are clearly responding by making advanced visualization (AV) technology a priority. Look for PACS companies exhibiting at McCormick Place to highlight integration of AV functionality, allowing users to launch these capabilities directly from their PACS workstation software and access these tools from around the healthcare enterprise.

For additional standalone AV technology introductions, stay tuned for our upcoming Advanced Visualization Road to RSNA section.

Digital mammography is again attracting attention in the PACS world, with many vendors highlighting viewing and management support for breast imaging. In addition, digital dashboard applications continue to grow in popularity, as vendors seek to provide customers with more management and monitoring capabilities to maximize their PACS investment.

With growth in the PACS market primarily taking place these days in small to medium-sized hospitals and imaging centers, it's also no surprise that companies are looking to directly address these sectors. RSNA attendees can expect to find plenty of specialized PACS configurations for lower-volume sites.
