GE displays Centricity PACS 4.0 at SIIM.12

GE Healthcare unveiled its updated Centricity PACS 4.0 at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting, June 7-10, in Orlando, Fla.

The new product allows multiple departments and locations to connect to PACS through the Centricity Enterprise Archive, a cloud-enabled, vendor neutral archive. The archive is designed to streamline archiving of “multi-ology” images, large datasets, diagnostic reports and other clinical information, GE said.

Centricity PACS 4.0 also streamlines mammography views and offers Windows 7 support. New features include:

  • Navigator with snap tool and timeline to easily drag and drop a series into a monitor region;
  • Single-click saving to quickly save and apply a presentation state with an auto-generated label and description; and
  • A “lights off” user interface theme offering high contrast icons for use in reading rooms with dimmer lighting.

Centricity PACS 4.0 will be available for sale in early Q3, 2012, according to GE Healthcare.
