Carestream Health showcased productivity-enhancing embedded 3D tools on its CARESTREAM PACS workstation at the annual “Workstation Face-Off”. Hosted by the International Society of Computed Tomography (ISCT), the “Workstation Face-Off” requires radiologists to process and interpret several complex computed tomography (CT) imaging studies. According to the ISCT this event is designed “to stretch the capabilities of the workstations to their limits.” This year each vendor was asked to present four cases: musculoskeletal; Brain CTA (including skull removal); vascular; and liver (including segmentation of the eight Couinaud segments). Three minutes were allowed per case, plus one additional cumulative minute for all the cases combined. “All these cases were complex and required advanced and automatic processing tools for fast and efficient presentation. Carestream Health was the only equipment provider to analyze all the cases on a PACS workstation and we completed all the cases smoothly and within the prescribed time limits,” said Cristine Kao, Carestream’s Worldwide Healthcare Information Solutions Marketing Manager. “This competition proves again that we have an outstanding single-solution PACS 3D processing workstation.” Other participants used dedicated, highly specialized 3D workstations, some of which employ special purpose hardware to achieve the required speed. Despite these specialized workstations, some suppliers could not finish the cases within the time limits.
