Winston-Salem, NC-based PointDx is a step closer to entering the U.S. market with a structured reporting technology following the FDA clearance of its REX workstation (version 1.0). REX seamlessly integrates structured reporting with 2D and 3D image analysis. The technology promises to improve report turnaround time, reducing overall reporting costs and providing more concise yet comprehensive information than is possible with traditional reporting models (see feature article, this issue). Completed multimedia reports are made available instantaneously to referring physicians, who can see patient information, diagnostic findings, and images in reports delivered over a secure Internet connection. The system is designed to replicate current reporting workflow, but it automates the process to eliminate many of the inefficiencies associated with traditional reporting. Reports are accompanied by embedded images.
