Carestream Vue PACS overview

What is Carestream Vue PACS?

Carestream Vue PACS is an enterprise-level, online Picture Archiving Communication System for radiologists and physicians. Delivering the tools and applications required for local and remote reporting within a single workspace, it adds a web-enabled diagnostic "PowerViewer" monitor with integrated, advanced and fully 64-bit visualization capabilities. Connecting imaging accessibility to all clinicians regardless of location, features include real-time volumetric matching and automatic registration, 3D data display with automatic vessel segmentation, plus interactive multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) and multiple exam imaging for comparative analysis.

Reporting capabilities include native PACS report generation using dictation via speech recognition input. Key images can also be embedded, while Vue PACS reporting can automatically insert quantitative and comparative analysis data into tabular forms. The inclusion of anatomical bookmarks is then represented by hyperlinks that allow other users to navigate out directly to the linked critical findings. Carestream Vue PACS also provides a newly embedded lesion management module that supports quantitative comparisons of historical exam results, accepting prior results as baseline images regardless of source modality. Similarly, the system's mammography module (Vue Mammo) also facilitates the reading of mammograms, plus breast ultrasound, MRI and digital Tomosynthesis (DBT) exams.

Pros
I enjoy the simplicity of use when it comes to the carestream software that I have and it is easy to access from multiple computers in my clinic.

Cons
The program doesn't offer all the tools that would make the program that much easier to use. I can still get the data I need from the current tools but makes it less convenient overall.

Overall I find it easy to use, but I get frustrated quite often with it, and I hope the engineers there take heed and make some adjustments. With some fine tuning this could be a much better program.

Pros
There are a few features I like. First, there is an option to "pin" a list of the patient's studies and to "pin" the reports on the left and right side of the screen, respectively. This lets you keep the list and/or reports handy as you scroll through images. Most of the graphics are clean, and it's a somewhat intuitive platform.

Cons
There are bugs to work out with this software and it is in strong need of additional features and physician input. First, it crashes all the time. I don't know if this is a software or hardware issue. But when you're trying to review films on multiple patients and this program crashes, it can literally ruin your tumor board or case discussion. If you don't pin the patient's studies and reports as described above, they will move into the screen if you accidentally bring the mouse over the left or right side of the screen. No problem right? Except the bar I use to scroll through the images is on the right side, so when I'm scrolling, I keep getting interrupted by the report unless I pin it. If I pin it and I am using a small monitor it takes up a tremendous amount of real estate. If I don't pin it the report text (or even just something saying there is no report yet!) keeps popping up. Not helpful. It is also very difficult to get rid of empty studies in CareStream. A lot of times two people will order the same test, and it gets done once, but if you don't know which accession to click you get an empty screen. There NEEDS to be an easier way to clear out tests that were ordered and not complete. The search function is quite wonky too. I have put in a patient's name only to get films for multiple other patients loading to my list.

Pros
Light and effective, simple to deploy and simple for desktop admins to administer. Basic functions are available and easy to learn,

Cons
Required browser and security integration which on some health platforms is more complex than it sounds however this is not really the vendors fault.

Benefits

Carestream Vue PACS is a cloud-based Picture Archiving Communication System and rich multimedia reporting solution for radiologists, referral physicians and clinicians that provides a full 64-bit architecture for 3D exam data display with automatic vessel segmentation.

Clinician reporting features include the ability to embed key images into reports, automatically inserting quantitative or comparative analysis (such as vessel analysis, lesion etc) in tabular form, plus anatomical bookmarks as hyperlinks.

Native PACS report generation also supports voice recognition, allowing clinicians the flexibility of using speech dictation on the fly via microphone as opposed to typing when trying to streamline workflow.

The platform's mammography module facilitates the reading of traditional general radiography or mammograms, breast ultrasounds, MRIs, plus digital breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) exams – all from within a single PACS.

An embedded lesion management application boasts a volumetric PowerViewer tool for performing quantitative comparisons of historical exams, accepting prior exam results from other third-party PACS to use as baseline images.
