Mirada Medical Provides Enterprise Solution for Willis Knighton Hospitals

Willis Knighton Health System, with hospitals in Shreveport and Bossier City, LA has selected Mirada Medical (Oxford, UK) to provide an enterprise wide workflow solution to support more efficient use of PET/CT imaging of cancer patients and image fusion in radiation treatment. The Mirada technology has been installed, and combines both the latest PACS integrated applications and remote reading locations throughout the Willis Knighton system. “We needed a solution which combined the highest quality clinical reading capabilities with enterprise wide access,” explained Willis Knighton Administrative Director, Joyce Hooper. “Our reading clinicians find the Mirada software powerful and intuitive, and the ability to integrate advanced applications directly onto our Sectra PACS will generate significant cost savings compared with traditional workstation based solutions”. Increased use of PET/CT imaging for cancer follows recent changes in reimbursement policy in the USA, which recognize the advantages this type of imaging has for diagnosing and assessing many forms of cancer.
