Shirley, NY (PRWEB) August 18, 2014
Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce the Atomlab 960 Thyroid Uptake System with optional DICOM Software is now a government approved modality to interface with VistA Imaging, the medical and health care system used in Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) medical centers and the Department of Defense (DOD).
VistA Imaging is an Image Management System used in VA healthcare facilities nationwide. It manages images associated with a patient’s medical records. VistA uses a DICOM gateway system to communicate with commercial Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) and modalities such as CT, MR and Computed Radiograph (x-ray) devices for image capture.
The Atomlab 960 Thyroid Uptake System with optional DICOM Software will communicate images to VistA Imaging, streamlining workflows and improving communication. The DICOM Software program retrieves patient information from the work list and uploads the patient results, without exiting out of the clinical software, increasing staff productivity and efficiency. As an interface with VistA, DICOM allows the thyroid uptake reports to be transferred, stored and queried/retrieved in the VA’s electronic health record system as well as exchange medical imagery with the Department of Defense. Physicians can view both images and uptake reports simultaneously.
The Atomlab 960 is an advanced spectrum analysis instrument designed for diverse nuclear medicine applications which boasts a count rate of 150,000 cps and is engineered for mobility, durability and operational efficiency. The combination of a new unique positioning LED and distance measurement rod allows for easy and reproducible patient positioning and uptake measurements during nuclear imaging.
Thyroid uptake studies, manual MCA program, wipe tests, bioassay, and other user-defined tasks are accomplished with speed and precision using this fully integrated computer-controlled instrument and its comprehensive selection of application software.
