We’ve had a flurry of emails and inquiries over the past few months of users that somehow lost their images that were stored in Horos. It turns out most of these are recoverable. However, it is both disruptive and expensive to make that happen. While Horos is a great tool for viewing and reviewing medical images, it was not intended to be a PACS. We always suggest the following:

Radiology Reports with Key Images Improve Communication

A standard radiology report is a useful way to capture and succinctly communicate the results of most imaging scans, including X-rays, CT scans and MRIs. Whether in human health or veterinarian care, this summary of the identified condition and diagnosis is a critical communication tool between the radiologist and the treating physician or patient. While radiology reports are traditionally comprised of text, reports with key images improve communication by providing a new layer of depth and understanding for physicians and their patients.
