When hanging protocols are not automated, medical images can end up in an order that doesn’t make sense to the person reading them. This will bog down the reading and diagnosis processes in a radiology center.
Without the right medical imaging technology, these inefficiencies will cause disruptions in the workflow and the potential for lost revenue.
A picture archiving and communication system greatly improves workflows by ensuring all medical images are properly ordered, labeled, and follow the correct hanging protocol. With these automated processes in place, radiology departments can streamline processes and ultimately increase productivity.
