BURLINGTON, Vt., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Mach 7 Technologies (M7T), a global provider of flexible, PACS-neutral healthcare image management solutions, has developed a state-of-the-art modality workstation application, the Keystone Study Split Utility (SSU), for Massachusetts General Hospital Imaging.
The Keystone SSU will enable Mass General Imaging to improve workflow and enhance technologist productivity by reducing the time required for technologists to accurately split multi-region CT and MR scans (i.e. Chest-Abdomen-Pelvis) into anatomic regions that match the original orders from the RIS and reducing the time required for the newly split studies to be sent to the picture archiving communications system (PACS).
With the new Keystone SSU application, radiologists who specialize in one region of the body will quickly get just the images they need to interpret while ensuring accurate billing for all orders entered into the system. The efficient and accurate splitting of studies is important as a means of speeding time to diagnosis, enhancing patient care, and improving operational and business processes.
"The Keystone Study Split Utility improves technologist workflow when splitting multi-region scans from CT or MR," notes Mary-Theresa Shore, Director of Clinical Operations at MGH. "Based on initial testing data from the Keystone SSU clinical pilot, we are excited about the anticipated increased technologists' efficiency that the utility will deliver from scanner to PACS."
Designed for simplicity and continuity, the SSU receives multi-region studies and provides a straightforward work list interface from which studies can be selected for splitting by technologists. Once selected, the study
