X-Ray Helps Kick Off NFL Draft

April 14, 2010 - When college football’s elite enter Radio City Music Hall April 22 for the 2010 National Football League (NFL) draft, it will be after much public analysis of their stats and accomplishments. Also important to a player’s prospect of being drafted is the outcome of diagnostic tests including X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cardiac evaluations.

Software, such as picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) and equipment from Fujifilm Medical Systems USA were used in acquiring, viewing and sharing these medical studies.

During the NFL Scouting Combine, players went through a series of comprehensive physical evaluations coordinated by Methodist Hospital, part of Clarian Health. Nearly 2,000 imaging studies were conducted on more than 300 players, and then stored in Fujifilm’s Synapse PACS, which offers an integrated, Web-based radiology and cardiovascular solution. Physicians from the 32 NFL teams accessed the recorded data on the Synapse computer workstations.

In addition to the Synapse PACS, three Fujifilm XG5000 digital X-ray systems were used to acquire approximately 1,600 general X-ray exams, such as knees, shoulders, spines and extremities. The XG5000 is designed for busy environments, with throughput speeds up to 165 imaging plates (IPs) per hour and image previews beginning in as little as 11 seconds.

Today's cardiovascular information systems need to incorporate all facets of the cardiology department, including subspecialties, to allow a complete picture of a patient's record. These data also need to be able to be shared with enterprise data systems, such as the electronic medical record (EMR). This image is from ScImage, illustrating the various aspects that integrate to make up a complete CVIS.
