Imaging center installs GE system

Florida Institute for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging in Port Richey announced in May that it has installed GE Healthcare's Centricity PACS-IW, a leading Web-based picture archiving and communications system.

"Centricity PACS-IW represents a revolutionary change in the way we practice radiology," said Dr. Steven Strobbe, president at Florida Institute for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging. "Today's modern imaging modalities, such as computed tomography (CT) scanners, produce an enormous amount of data."

Once the exam has been completed, the radiologists have immediate access to patient images. The radiologists can then manipulate the images using the latest diagnostic techniques, quickly interrogating every nuance of the data, to include three-dimensional manipulation.

Patients will no longer have to carry around stacks of X-ray films, as they will be given CDs that include their imaging exams and reports. Referring physicians may be immediately alerted (via e-mail) when the results of their patients' examinations are available and have secure access to all of their exams online.

For information, call Lori Brienza, RN, LHRM, facilities director, at (727) 868-2151.
