Carestream Health plans to spotlight its MyVue patient portal, lesion management module, and several other new offerings at the upcoming 2012 RSNA meeting in Chicago.

The MyVue patient portal is designed to enable patients to securely access, manage, and share their medical images and radiology reports with specialists and healthcare providers, according to the vendor.

The portal emails a unique and secure login to each patient; their images, information, and reports can then be accessed from a variety of Web browser-enabled devices, Carestream said. Patients can view their study or portfolio and share it with physicians.

No software download is required. MyVue's HTML5 viewer can be deployed on multiple devices and complements Carestream's Vue Motion image viewer for clinicians and referring physicians, according to the vendor.

MyVue is available as an option for Carestream's Vue PACS and Vue Archive. It can also be ordered as Vue Cloud Service, which will launch in February 2013 and allow customers the ability to use the service for a monthly fee.

Carestream said that MyVue positions U.S. healthcare providers to meet stage 2 meaningful use requirements under the U.S. government's healthcare IT stimulus program.

Houston Medical Imaging is one of the first to implement MyVue as an extension of Vue PACS, deploying the portal at its three outpatient imaging centers.

In other RSNA introductions, Carestream will feature its new lesion management module as a native oncology follow-up application for Vue PACS. The application is designed to perform semiautomatic quantitative comparisons of historical imaging exams, Carestream said.

Semiautomatic tracking and segmentation of lesions can be provided on lesions from modalities and other vendors' PACS software, Carestream said. Each measurement generates an anatomical bookmark within the exam.

The application can also generate oncology imaging reports in accordance with standards such as the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST), the company said. It has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance and is available for order.

Vue Beyond for Radiology is a new business intelligence and reporting dashboard that shows metrics such as a real-time queue of studies waiting for report, report turnaround time per radiologist, and productivity levels for every member of the imaging department, according to the vendor. It's currently available for order.

Carestream said it would also display new features for its Vue Motion vendor-agnostic viewer, including side-by-side display of current and prior images and the ability to input order notes to the exam.
