Diagnostic Imaging IT Innovations May Steal the Show at RSNA 2015

Diagnostic Imaging IT Innovations May Steal the Show at RSNA 2015On Tuesday, Nuance Communications announced several new innovations for its diagnostic imaging solutions designed to help radiologists enhance patient care.

These include multimedia reports, advanced lung cancer screening registry reporting and enhanced quality guidance content for radiologists at the point of interpretation.

Nuance tells mHealthWatch that it will demonstrate PowerScribe 360 version 3.5 along with these new quality based innovations in booth #4729 at RSNA 2015 November 29 – December 4 in Chicago.

Nuance PowerScribe 360 version 3.5 enables relevant PACS images to be embedded into reports for sharing of multimedia reports between physicians, which provide a more comprehensive picture of a patient’s condition, helping referring physicians better understand findings and discuss treatment options with specialists and patients.

“In radiology, a picture really is worth a thousand words,” says Dr. Christopher J. Roth, assistant professor of radiology, vice chair of information technology and clinical informatics, and director of imaging informatics strategy at Duke University Hospital. “Being able to show an actual image to referring physicians and their patients, and walk through what that study is telling us is a huge win for patient care. Having the right information is critical to making the most informed decisions.”
