Europe has often led the way in PACS, and the introduction of digital image management systems has brought important benefits to patients and healthcare professionals.
Chester, UK (PRWEB) September 12, 2011
Radiology portal AuntMinnieEurope.com today launched its new PACS Digital Community, a special section devoted to coverage of digital imaging systems. The new section is made possible by the support of McKesson.
The widespread introduction of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) has transformed the practice of medical imaging during the past decade. Workflow patterns and procedures have improved, both within the radiology department and across the hospital as a whole.
The new PACS Digital Community will enable AuntMinnieEurope.com members to follow the key advances and trends in the ongoing digitization process, and it aims to deliver reliable, objective information about radiology case studies, as well as the latest implementation and industry news and lessons learned by PACS users, according to Editor in Chief Philip Ward.
"Europe has often led the way in PACS, and the introduction of digital image management systems has brought important benefits to patients and healthcare professionals," Ward said. "We’re looking forward to expanding and developing our coverage of this exciting process during a period of significant change in healthcare."
