Near East University has begun the installation of the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), which is the latest medical imaging technology that provides economical storage of radiological data in a common medium and ensures convenient access to images and the associated reports whenever needed. PACS system also provides physicians with opportunity to increase the success rate and quality of operations by conducting simulated surgery in virtual environment prior the operations.
Uses of PACS System
Fujifilm’s Synapse Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), which is scheduled to be in use in December, allows the archiving and distribution of vast amounts of image information from all modalities. Synapse Workstation Software provides viewing and manipulation of radiological data including images, reports, patient status and clinical information. It also provides integrations to clinical applications including Radiology Information System (RIS) and three dimensional processing applications. The system enables the preparations of the assessments and reports in a short time by using the temporal (4D) processing and storage features of the images. Regardless the location and time, the physicians can access the patient’s data through their tablets, mobile phones, laptops or any other web-based device. Compared to conventional PACS, Fujifilm’s Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) allows more comprehensive and detailed applications in the field of Neurology; Cardiology, Pulmonology, Gastroenterology, Urology and Oncology. These applications encompass colonoscopy and bronchoscopy simulation, stent implantation simulation, catheter insertion simulation and advanced vascular analysis and similar applications in virtual environment.
Adopting it as its fundamental goal to provide the people of Cyprus with quality, safe and affordable health services through the latest technological devices, Near East University Hospital is committed to investing in the field of health without interruption.
