Radiology Regional Maximizes Digital Mammography Reading Efficiency

How an all-in-one workstation for mammography and radiology accelerated turnaround and increased study volume

An inefficient reading process for digital breast tomosynthesis decreased turnaround times.  

Radiology Regional’s clinicians had to navigate between two workstations to compare a patient’s 3D images with breast MRIs and ultrasounds completed on a different modality. 

When you open the patient record, the Mammography opens up, the ultrasound opens up, and the breast MRI opens up. You have it all right there laid out in front of you.

Increased volume and decreased read-times for digital mammography

The practice’s radiologists can now read 3D images at almost the same speed as they were originally reading 2D images. Radiology Regional was so pleased with the results that it built display protocols for every modality, not just mammography.
