Paper Abstract

The University of Pennsylvania Radiology Department is moving towards having a 'Filmless' Emergency Department (ED). Different modalities like computed radiography (CR), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MR) together with the IDXRad Radiology Information System (RIS) have been integrated into a centralized PACS. ED radiologists can view studies simultaneously from one of many four-monitor diagnostic workstations using various unread study worklists with patient demographics and examination details, along with prior images and reports. ED clinicians can immediately view the diagnostic quick readings, preliminary and final reports.
