In my hallowed position as the Dalai Lama of PACS, I am occasionally in receipt of information that cannot be immediately verified. If I’m in a cantankerous mood, I will post it, although now in my older, more mellow years, I do so with the caveat that the stuff is strictly unsubstantiated rumour.
With that disclaimer in mind, here are some new tidbits:
First, word on the street is that GE has been unable to integrate the Dynamic Imaging IntegradWeb GUI to the Centricity back-end or to the IDX RIS. They are still trying to do so, but it ain’t working as yet. Another GE purchase bites the dust?
Second, word on a different street indicates that Philips is developing a new PACS, centered around its XIRIS Ris product. It was noted that Philips hasn’t done much to
Stentor iSite since its purchase several years ago. iSite might just disappear, or perhaps it will be for sale. Then Sectra could buy it!
Third, Agfa has appointed me head of product development. Nah, I made that one up.
Please feel free to comment with rebuttals, additional scuttlebutt, etc. No death-threats, please.
