Press Release


DALLAS, TX, June 2, 2009 – BRIT Systems announced today that the company’s next generation, browser-based PACS has received FDA 510(k) clearance and will be introduced to attendees at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), June 4-7 in Charlotte, NC. The Roentgen Works PACS product line represents a new era of PACS development for BRIT Systems by utilizing leading edge Web technologies such as cloud computing, Linux cluster, and AJAX, which is used by Google.

"The introduction of Roentgen Works PACS and its browser-based tools is the most significant product introduction since BRIT first launched teleradiology and PACS products over 15 years ago," says Shelly Fisher, President, BRIT Systems. "This is more than just Web-based PACS; rather it is a family of browser-based tools that facilitate the overall communication needs in radiology by utilizing the same Internet technologies that power Web sites such as Google and Amazon."

The Roentgen Works Web Server boasts a new server architecture that compliments remote reading and distributed workflow environments. Roentgen WorksFlow, introduced at SIIM 2008, is a workflow solution that enables radiology groups of all sizes to provide outsourced radiology reading services.

According to Fisher, using the latest generation of Web technologies, such as AJAX, in the design of Roentgen Works provides radiologists with the tools they need to work and communicate more efficiently. This includes BRIT’s new UrgentWorks, which addresses ACR and JCAHO requirements for reporting critical tests and findings. UrgentWorks harnesses the power of browser-based technologies to place phone calls, deliver reports via email or fax, and document all attempted and successful communications.

The FDA clearance includes a multi-modality workstation with specialized tools for viewing mammography studies. Fully DICOM compliant, Roentgen Works will also offer permanent, replicated offsite storage of medical images and data in a DICOM archive.

BRIT Systems is also introducing WebWorks, a 100% browser-based report/image viewer for clinicians and referring physicians. WebWorks integrates with browser-based electronic medical records/electronic health records and is Google Health Record enabled.

BRIT will be showcasing Roentgen Works, UrgentWorks, and WebWorks at SIIM, Booth 329.
