Filmless System Puts X-Ray Images On The Web

operational, about a year from now, it will transmit images to hundreds of computer work stations throughout the hospital and link radiology with the emergency department, intensive care units, doctor's offices in the hospital, the Shock Trauma Center, the Greenebaum Cancer Center and to any referring physician with a personal computer and a secure access code.

Instead of printing an image to film, computed radiography reads X-ray plates and composes a matrix image. The computer transmits digital image information and creates a high-resolution image.

At the click of a mouse, the images appear and can be manipulated on a computer screen. Images are stored on optical disks allowing for rapid retrieval of not only the most recently taken image, but past images for comparison. Past films can also be digitized so that relevant historical exams will be archived.

AGFA, a technical imaging company and a division of Bayer in Ridgefield Park, N.J., has installed 130 cable lines across five buildings at the medical center to link the network, called IMPAX. AGFA's WEB 1000 Java server will provide Internet access.

"The AGFA networks will help us deliver timely medical information to increase the efficiency and productivity of our institution," Dr. Templeton says.

The move to digital images represents the University of Maryland Medical Center's continuing commitment to higher definition and diagnostic efficiency in imaging technology. The medical center has also installed a filmless ultrasound system that uses a chain of computer workstations where doctors view results. The system links the medical center with an outpatient building in Baltimore as well as at Mercy Medical Center, where University radiologists provide diagnostic radiology services. The new system, featuring the Sequoia 512 f and AEGIS mini-PACS , is manufactured by Acuson, a company based in Mountain View, California.
