Using a computing system (PACS):
The Radiology Department of Istiklal Hospital uses the PACS system. This is useful for:
Through this system, existing digital images can be processed for diagnostic purposes with the highest possible accuracy.
The ability to print test pictures on CD, x-ray film or paper.
The ability to save images for many years, with high quality, allowing the doctor to return to it and compare the new pictures.
Connect devices in the emergency and internal departments of the hospital as well as our doctors’ clinics with the system so that the doctor can see the images directly through the PACS screens they have.
