Stentor Introduces Version 3.3 of iSite(R) Enterprise First Picture Archive and Communications System (PACS)


BRISBANE, CA -- 11/28/2004 -- Stentor, a leader in medical image and information management, today announced the release of iSite PACS version 3.3. The announcement was made at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 89th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois.

iSite PACS version 3.3 adds improved clinical features and functionality to Stentor’s #1 rated iSite PACS, including: remote reading/caching of exams for teleradiology; exam memos for improved collaboration between physicians; image processing filters to aid physician interpretation and diagnosis; a localizer tool for improved diagnosis and image navigation; updated key images tools; and a CD manager for easy image distribution and management.

In addition, Stentor is launching the iSite Platform program. The Platform program includes a core API and supporting technologies that enable 3rd party applications to work seamlessly within the iSite PACS environment, sharing user context, images, and related clinical information on a single desktop. The Platform program enables customization to drive the implementation of applications such as the electronic medical record (EMR), computerized physician order entry (CPOE), speech recognition, orthopaedic templating, 3D imaging, and structured reporting. Incorporating such tools within the PACS environment enables iSite to become an open platform for clinical applications across the health care enterprise.

At RSNA, selected clinical application partners will be showcasing iSite Platform combinations at the Stentor booth:

-- Heartlab: Cardiology workstations for access to high-quality images for all cardiology studies
