BIRADS© Tracking

Integrated breast imaging workflow for viewing, reporting and tracking.

eRAD’s Breast Imaging solution is optimized for high-volume reading, supported by multi-modality reads from the same workstation, pre-staging of priors and automatic display protocols that require minimal manual intervention.

eRAD Breast Imaging features solutions for high-volume screening and advanced diagnostic mammography, eliminating the need for dedicated mammography workstations. The patient’s priors—US, MR or any modality—and the full patient record can be viewed from any mammography reading station and easily compared to current results. Our web-based solution ensures fast image distribution and data retrieval, even over high-latency networks and in remote environments. Login once to access an integrated workflow that includes breast imaging tools and is tailored to individual preferences—no additional applications to learn. A closed-loop follow-up workflow is driven by BI-RADS® coding and tissue density, ensuring clinician productivity and fostering patient relationships.

Breast Imaging Workflow | BI-RADS Score

The time-consuming shuffle between a dedicated mammography workstation and the PACS (picture archiving and communication system) can be eliminated, saving hours of productivity and thousands of dollars. Read multiple modalities—including ultrasound, tomosynthesis, MRI, mammography—side-by-side, along with the patient folder. This leads to optimal comparison and faster report turnarounds.

Our cloud-based solution ensures fast image distribution and data retrieval. This holds true even over high-latency networks and in remote environments—freeing mammographers from dedicated, monolithic workstations.

Login once to access an integrated radiology workflow that includes advanced diagnostic tools (such as CAD support, mirrored image linking, anatomical greyscale inversion and skin-line detection). Your eRAD breast imaging workflow solution is tailored to individual preferences—no additional applications to learn.

A closed-loop follow-up breast imaging workflow is driven by BI-RADS (Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System) coding and tissue density. Your breast imaging worklist can be sorted by BIRADS score and the option of using the AIE Image Enhancement toolkit for ultra-high clarity views of dense tissue.

User-defined macros assigned to any input device (mouse, keypad, speechmike) speed the breast imaging workflow. Digital breast images, regardless of modality vendor, automatically display in the same size with correct orientation and alignment, facilitating comparison of current and prior images. Integrated report creation tools in the diagnostic viewer make this a powerful workflow combination.

These are only two of the powerful innovations that eRAD makes available to its customers:

Tomosynthesis

Breast tomosynthesis (3D Mammography) helps clinicians find early curable breast cancers via multiple slices of each breast from multiple projection views. eRAD radiology software technology is optimized to handle the storage capacity, archive costs and distribution infrastructure necessary to support tomosynthesis.

The eRAD Mammography Module delivers 3D mammography features (like tomo synchronization, annotation and cine), enabling our customers to provide this innovative modality to women in their local communities.

 

AIE Image Enhancement

AIE’s proprietary image enhancement software, originally developed from Navy research to locate undersea mines, leverages signal processing technology. This technology enhances the ability of physicians to extract more information from medical images.

AIE’s processing algorithms enhance digital mammography images to create visually sharp and detailed images. Clinical trials have demonstrated this technology improves the conspicuity and detail of abnormalities. It also improves the clarity of detail in dense breasts and can aid radiologists with BIRADS classification and BIRADS scores.

eRAD has integrated the AIE image enhancement toolkit as an advanced image processing option in our Mammography Module.

“With as many as 20 remote sites sending us studies on a 24/7 basis, our workflow is complex and requires a certain degree of flexibility and the need to customize based on the institution. Not only did we find this capability in eRAD, but it also offered us lots of extra features. In addition to basic remote access, we got integrated report creation, dictation, transcription, speech recognition and distribution tools—which allows us to create and distribute medical reports with embedded key images to our referring physicians and institutions online in a secure manner.”

“We have been very impressed to date with the intuitiveness of the products, the ease of implementation, the product and professional services support teams from eRAD and the pace at which we are seeing this new platform evolve.”
