To expedite your care, diagnostics are available to your physician quickly, via our secure PACS System. Using PACS, the radiologist can view your exam at the hospital on computer monitors and your physician can view your images in their office. All studies are saved in the hospital’s Picture Archiving System (PACS) allowing the images to be transferred between hospital locations. In addition to the PACS system, SJRH has added the computer-aided detection system (iCAD) which allows the computer to take a “second look” with the radiologist to prompt subtle density changes within tissue.
While radiologists have predominately used PACS, PACS technologies have been incorporated into other departments, such as nuclear medicine imaging, cardiology, pathology, oncology and mammography scans.
Medical images are reviewed for clinical analysis, diagnosis and treatment as part of a patient’s care plan. The information collected can also be used to chart the progress of treatment and provide clinicians with a database of normal patient scans for later reference.
