The way John Conklin, director of cardiology programs for San Diego-based DR Systems, sees it, the ability to accept, promote, and utilize open standards is a key factor for any PACS vendor. According to Conklin, DR's Unity-SC PAC system offers flexibility in the way images and reporting are presented to each individual user. DR System's Unity platform also offers custom templates for specific procedures and the ability to use speech recognition in combination with a structured report format. It also provides integrated advanced visualization and cloud-based imaging. The system is optimized for imaging centers and small hospitals that conduct up to 25,000 exams per year and is able to connect to other DR Systems PACS, allowing access to other radiology and physician resources.

Anything that can help integration & usability of these expensive tests is a win to healthcare. Sometimes it amazes me that these tests are so expensive and yet so difficult to interface with. It sounds like better solutions are just on the horizon!
