Kestral giving you the complete picture


Kestral Welcomes Western Radiology

June 2013

Established in late 2011, Western Radiology (WR) offers a full range of imaging services including ultrasound, CT, thoracic imaging, musculoskeletal imaging and pain management.

Western Radiology offers its patients bulk billing, high quality radiology services and customer care with the latest RIS/PACS technology and excellent personal service.

Western Radiology recently went live with Karisma. The Kestral project team and the team at WR configured Karisma RIS to reflect the needs of the clerical, radiography and radiology workflow requirements. The Kestral team were on hand to support the go live process.

Delighted with the benefits that Karisma RIS brings to the practice, Western Radiology has a new fully integrated RIS/PACS solution which allows the WR team to spend more time with patients and ensure that reports are despatched to referring doctors in a timely manner.

As part of the Karisma RIS go live process, patient demographics were imported with XML files and custom scripting for the DICOM modality work list was created. Desktop integration with the PACS image viewer will significantly improve the radiologist’s workflow overall.

Kestral would like to acknowledge the assistance of everyone at Western Radiology during the installation of Karisma. We are pleased to provide WR with a Karisma solution to help them further their reputation for excellent customer service.
