The company said Friday the Philips IntelliSpace PACS version 4.4 platform was piloted at GRMC“™s radiology department for gradual expansion into diagnostic imaging and other services.
“This new Picture Archiving and Communication System from Philips enables us to store, access, and review everything from old X-ray films to the most advanced digital images in all modalities,“ said James Rawson, chief of radiologic services at GRMC.
IntelliSpace PACS, part of the Philips healthcare informatics solutions and services group“™s portfolio, is built with multi-modality visualization features and is designed to help with remote clinical services.
