Radiology Information Systems
Radiology Information Systems (RIS-PACS) is responsible for storing and retrieving all of the data obtained by the various tests described above. Test-to-report time is speeded by transmitting digital images to radiologists in Australia who can provide overnight diagnoses that are forwarded to a transcription service in Canada and returned to KEMH the following day.
Physicians may request that images from their patients’ tests be burned to disk or e-mailed anywhere in the world. Only CT scans and MRIs can be burned to film.
