USAF to Launch Global Cardiology Network

April 21, 2011 – ScImage announced the launch of a project to assist the United States Air Force (USAF), Aeromedical Consultation Service (ACS) with the collection, assessment and reporting tools necessary to expedite cardiovascular decisions for rated aviators, while concurrently reducing flight disqualification delays.

As defined by the USAF, the project scope includes the creation of a USAF-wide, comprehensive digital system for the categorization, visualization and interpretation of full diagnostic quality cardiac studies.

Using a secure, DIACAP accredited PicomEnterprise PACS from ScImage, flight clinics worldwide can electronically transfer exams to ACS for rapid assessment. Inbound exams are reconciled with MilPDS and subsequently presented to specialists along with relevant priors for primary reading.

With this new Web-based PACS system, ACS physicians report their observations electronically, providing quick decision support for the disposition of flight personnel. Now, highly trained Air Force aviators can be rapidly evaluated and re-deployed to operational status in hours rather than days.

As the central library project matures, ACS will have the foundation of a complete cardiology recordset, consisting of imaging, reports and discrete test data for all rated aviators; including an ECG library extending back nearly 60 years. This extensive volume of data will provide the USAF with profound research capabilities, all from one database.
