This paper identifies and analyzes how the implementation and use of picture archiving and communication system impacts radiologists' work practice. The study is longitudinal from 1999 to 2005 and have a qualitative perspective were data were collected by structured interviews in a total of 46. The interviews were transcribed, analyzed, and coded using(More)
The aim of this study is to analyze how simulation has been used in healthcare (radiology, in particular) to predict the outcome of work practice changes. This is a literature study concerning different simulation models as a planning tool prior to changes in work practice. The radiology organization is in a transformation process. There is a lack of(More)
Conventional chest radiographs and CT scans were studied retrospectively in 283 patients with untreated non-seminomatous testicular tumor. Intrathoracic metastases were found in 47 patients, and CT was the only positive examination in 20 of them. Lung metastases were seen in 39 patients and mediastinal lymph nodes were involved in 13. The additional yield(More)
Emerging electronic health technologies create an unending transformation process. This calls for new ways to plan and prepare the radiology department for these changes. There is a lack of literature addressing ways to predict the effects of implementing and using new technologies in healthcare. Innovative services by means of simulation is a technique(More)
Variety Range (difference between the maximum and minimum transverse diameters in percentage of the minimum diameter) was calculated for 86 lumbar lymph nodes with maximum diameter ranging between 5 mm and 19 mm at CT. The nodes were located within a group (pre- and paracaval, interaortico-caval, pre- and paraaortic) which was removed during primary(More)
Although the screening of abdominal aortic diameter helps to identify men with abdominal aortic aneurysm and saves lives, there is need to coordinate and synchronize screening personnel's way to work. This article describes the design of a game based skill training application that could give the screening personnel an additional opportunity to refine(More)
Fourteen patients with known muscle invasive bladder carcinoma were examined with computed tomography (CT) before and five to seven days after diagnostic transurethral resection (TUR). The CT examinations included pre- and postcontrast series. In order to standardize the technique, we examined on a distended bladder. No significant changes occurred for the(More)
This paper describes a novel teleradiology solution, its services and graphical user interfaces (GUIs), and the strategic decisions taken in the development of the services. The novel services are embedded in a radiology information infrastructure in Västra Götalandsregionen (VGR), Sweden. The application is fully integrated with all different RIS and PACS(More)
The absorbed spatial dose distribution resulting from a specially designed CT protocol for examination of the urinary bladder has been investigated with TLD rods in a body phantom containing tissue equivalent material. The CT examination consisted of scout view and both pre- and postcontrast scan series with 5 mm slice thickness and 5 mm unscanned intervals(More)
BACKGROUND Challenges related to the cross-organizational access of accurate and timely information about a patient's condition has become a critical issue in healthcare. Interoperability of different local sources is necessary. PURPOSE To identify and present missing and semantically incorrect data elements of metadata in the radiology enterprise service(More)
