NovaRad is extending its installations in Texas, adding two imaging centers that have recently selected its radiology technologies. The centers include, Forney Diagnostic Imaging Center in Forney, Texas and West Houston Radiology Associates in Houston, Texas. NovaRad South, a NovaRad distributor, facilitated the contract with this imaging center.
Interpreting physicians at the centers will use NovaPACS to support diagnostic reading. Because the PACS is web-based, they will have the flexibility to securely access studies both in and outside the imaging center.
An additional factor in the selection decision was the availability of NovaCentral support that enables NovaRad’s customer support team to monitor, in real time, all of the critical functions of the PACS. The remote monitoring serves as a safeguard to ensure uptime and updates for optimal performance of the system.
These latest facilities bring the total number of hospitals, clinics and radiology centers using NovaRad technologies in Texas to 18.
The web-based PACS platform of NovaPACS is tremendously popular with our customers, said Paul Shumway, NovaRad vice president. It provides a significant benefit to radiologists as they have the freedom to access images anytime and from any location and benefits the patients with faster interpretations and improved patient care.
NovaPACS is NovaRad’s complete, turnkey PACS offering fast image retrieval, full-feature viewer with intuitive interface, and 7-year on-site archive with off site emergency back up. Full screen viewing, easy to use menus and mouse-based functions are available to help enhance efficiency and referring physicians have complete access to images and reports from any computer.
