TESTIMONIALS FROM JAPANESE RADIOLOGISTS
Kitasato University Hospital
Private university hospital opened in 1971
(Sagamihara City, Kanagawa prefecture)
32 clinical departments, 1033 beds,
22 diagnostic terminals, approx.3200 client terminals
There used to be 3 different PACS system operating in their hospital (Kitasato University Hospital) and their affiliated hospital (Kitasato University East Hospital). In May 2014, with the construction of a new hospital ward, they took the opportunity to replace their PACS with PSP’s “EV Insite System”. From that time, EV Insite System has stored and managed all images in their hospitals.
Our hospital doesn’t have a PACS specialist. Even though we have a large demand for the PACS, we were not exactly sure of what PACS could do or how it could meet our needs. Therefore, we have chosen PSP as our PACS specialist since we believe they have become our partner in providing competent consulting skills to come up with suitable proposals, adapting to our situation and needs.
We can feel PSP’s strong enthusiasm to fulfill our needs and assist radiologic diagnosis. Rather than saying “This is too difficult”, they never give up and work hard to give us the best solution.
We also appreciate their responsibility when working on our projects.
Our system renewal was a complete success because they really met our needs that we initially discussed.
The default display is easily customizable. Also, we can intuitively and comfortably add a series of images in the main window during interpretation.
Reconstructed images and MIP images can be created on the main window, which helps us to compare with other images.
Moreover, fusion features are easy-to-use, which can be applied to not only nuclear medicine, but also MRI images’ interpretation.
Physicians in our clinical departments also commented “our system has become more user-friendly since the system renewal”.
The standalone viewer, EV Insite S is used for clinical exercises in our university. Students are getting more motivated by using almost the same features as of the hospital’s system on EV Insite S. PSP’s system has contributed to making radiological images more appealing.
National Hospital Organization Kumamoto Medical Center
Former national hospital opened in 1871
(Kumamoto City, Kumamoto prefecture)
33 clinical departments, 550 beds,
16 diagnostic terminals, approx.500 client terminals
The hospital has started using PACS in the radiology department since 2005 and started their hospital-wide filmless workflow since 2007.
At first, they were concerned about terminating films and using the system instead, but they have really come to value the system since it started.
Some of them even said they couldn’t do the diagnostic imaging without PACS.
At first, we only stored CT, MRI, and CR images in PACS. Later, we increased the types of images we store in PACS, such as TV, Scintigraphy, etc. We really appreciate PSP for facilitating the expansion of the data capacity for new modalities by installing the hard disk and the servers, etc.
We can always rely on PSP without worries thanks to their flexibility to adapt to our needs. We had the data capacity increased 5 years after the implementation of PACS and have been using PSP PACS since then.
A lot of patients come to our emergency outpatient unit every day. After all, diagnostic imaging is crucial for emergency care. Without the filmless workflow, we couldn’t immediately look into scanned images.
128-row CT and 64-row CT have expedited our examinations since they were newly installed in the hospital. This means adding a 128-row CT for 4-dimentional scan, to where a 3-dimentional CT data has been stored over a period of time.
The data has more than doubled, yet, EV Insite System can quickly process and display detailed images. This is the advantage of EV Insite System.
We often receive requests to interpret images once examination is completed and EV Insite System has enabled us to deal with almost all of the requests in a timely manner.
Customizability of shortcut keys and right-click menu also expedites our workflow.
