Paper Abstract

Dearchival of image data in the form of x-ray film provides a major challenge for radiology departments. In highly active referral environments such as tertiary care hospitals, patients may be referred to multiple clinical subspecialists within a very short time. Each clinical subspecialist frequently requires diagnostic image data to complete the diagnosis. This need for image access often interferes with the normal process of film handling and interpretation, subsequently reducing the efficiency of the department. The concept of creating a local image database on individual nursing stations utilizing the AT&T CommView Results Viewing Station (RVS) is being evaluated. Initial physician acceptance has been favorable. Objective measurements of operational productivity enhancements are in progress.
