MGH Still Uses Old AMICAS!

Look familiar? This is a screen-shot from AMICAS PACS, circa 2005. That would be about 10 years ago.

But I just had a flash of deja vu…While watching tonight’s episode of Save My Life on ABC, filmed at Mass General, I very briefly spotted a PACS client of this vintage…no, I don’t have a screen shot, but I’ll work on it.

I knew AMICAS PACS had been used as an overlay to IMPAX at MGH, put in place back when IMPAX couldn’t handle multi-slice scans.

Apparently, a 10-year-old AMICAS system is good enough for Mass General. Maybe that’s because after 10 years, it still works. Unlike, well, need I say it?

Here’s the promised screen shot, although it’s from last week:
