AMICAS PACS Version 6.0 delivers intrinsic mammography workflow and visualization tools, which helps drive a solid return on investment and increased productivity for radiologists. With intrinsic mammography and high-end tools for reading all radiology studies, AMICAS PACS provides for all of a radiologist's needs in a single, Web-based workstation.

"When AMICAS was developing its intrinsic mammography capabilities, they reached out to me - and other radiologists - to ensure that their radiology PACS fits into the real world of mammography," said Randy Hicks MD, radiologist and owner of Regional Medical Imaging of Flint, MI. "AMICAS actively solicits feedback from practicing radiologists, and I have found that this collaborative process delivers a superior PACS solution for my practice."

"My practice is an ACR-certified Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, so it is important to me to be able to perform all of my reads - including digital mammography, breast MRI, breast ultrasound, BSGI, and all of my multi-modality breast biopsy images - on a single PACS workstation," said Dr. Hicks. "AMICAS has delivered a solution that improves my productivity and allows me to avoid expensive standalone workstations."

Dr. Randy Hicks will be in the AMICAS booth at RSNA to discuss his productivity gains and return on investment associated with AMICAS PACS. To schedule a time to meet with Dr. Hicks and to learn more about AMICAS' radiology PACS for mammography, please visit www.amicas.com/rsna.

"In the past, radiologists had two choices if they wanted to provide digital mammography services. They could use their radiology PACS viewer for interpreting non-mammography studies and use a separately-licensed - and cost-prohibitive - mammography workstation for mammography studies. Their alternative was to read all of their studies - including mammography studies - on their standard radiology PACS viewer, which has a few mammography-related features but lacks the functionality to truly facilitate efficient mammography reading workflow," said Rodney Hawkins, vice president of product management at AMICAS.

"AMICAS PACS delivers the best of both worlds: a Web-based viewer with powerful features and intrinsic mammography - and leading-edge features for reading non-mammography studies," said Mr. Hawkins.
