radiologic medicine
Radiologic Medicine
  • Traditional x-rays
  • Ultrasounds
  • MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
  • CT Scans
  • Angiography
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Mammography
what is pacs
What is PACS?
  • Picture Archiving and Communications System
  • Allows for digitizing of medical images that were previously printed on films.
  • Allows radiologists to read and interpret images from a computer monitor instead of film.
why switch to pacs

We need a PACS!

Why Switch to PACS?
  • Greater Accuracy
  • Greater Flexibility
  • Greater Efficiency
  • Increased Radiologist Productivity
  • Less Expensive Storage Space
  • Less radiology report turn-around time
  • IMPROVED PATIENT CARE!
