X-ray viewing

  1. Just wondering how many have access to PACS (Picture archiving and communications system) for viewing x-rays, etc. if it is used in their unit.

    I work NICU, but where I am I believe only charge nurses, certain RT's and the docs have access.

    We use it also, and I am so grateful for it.

    It is most useful when I'm placeing a DHT. I can go over and find out right away if I'm inthe right spot or not. If I'm just curled up in the stomach, then I can re-position it and order another KUB. If I'm in, then I just call the dr and ask him to look at the KUB and give me the ok to use. I don't have to wait forever for a reading between each attempt.....

    Our whole hospital is up on it. Any medical personnel can pull it up.
