Patient dose management solution directly integrated in the RIS: 'Gray Detector' software. http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10278-014-9715-y
On X-ray modalities, the information concerning the dose delivered to the patient is usually available in image headers or in structured reports stored in the picture archiving and communication system (PACS). Sometimes this information is sent in the Modality Performed Procedure Step message. By saving the information inside the Radiological Information System, it can be linked to the patient and to his/her episode/request. A software, “Gray Det...

Picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) play a critical role in radiology. This paper presents the criteria important to PACS administrators for selecting a PACS. http://ow.ly/yK72S
Picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) play a critical role in radiology. This paper presents the criteria important to PACS administrators for selecting a PACS. A set of criteria are identified and organized into an integrative hierarchical framework. Survey responses from 48 administrators are used to identify the relative weights of these criteria through an analytical hierarchy process. The five main dimensions for PACS selection ...

In his blog, The Value of Hackathons in Healthcare, Don Dennison reflects on the role of Hackathons in Healthcare, while providing an invaluable article that explores why the concept of “hacking” is so prevalent in healthcare. http://ow.ly/yK44A
Having participated in the inaugural SIIM 2014 Hackathon, I can appreciate the diverse expectations that participants have. Some think of these events as a way to learn and experiment, others a com...

Interventional Radiology Workflow Management in the Electronic Medical Record
Journal of Digital Imaging
Geralyn Gassert, Janette Durham, Michael Cain, Peter B. Sachs (June 2014)
The electronic medical record (EMR) has significantly improved efficiency in many areas of radiology workflow. Following implementation of an electronic protocol selection process for cross-sectional imaging at the University of Colorado Hospital, the interventional radiology (IR) division desired to have a similar tool. Evaluation of the IR workflow demonstrated the need for a multilayered solution, which accounted for consultation, physician review, authorization and scheduling, pre-procedural nursing evaluation, physician rounding, and resource allocation and prioritization. This paper outlines the rationale for and components of this process.

Informatics Challenges—Lossy Compression in Medical Imaging
Journal of Digital Imaging
Don Dennison, Kinson Ho (June 2014)
There has been much discussion on the topic of lossy image compression within the medical imaging community, with much of the focus on the potential clinical impact and business benefits. The implications of applying irreversible lossy compression to images as it relates to informatics and management is often not considered thoroughly.
