A major cardiac center in Milan, Italy, the Centro Cardiologico Monzino, has selected ComPACS as its PACS for the Digital Echo Lab.

The PACS will initially consist of ten workstations for off-line multi-modality reviewing and echo reporting, part of which will have off-line echo analysis capabilities. The PACS will be connected to twelve different ultrasound units, mainly Philips Sonos 5500 and IE33 and Siemens Sequoias, as well as communicating with the central radiology PACS. Measurements will be automatically imported from the ultrasound carts throughout the use of DICOM SR (Supp. 72) or ad-hoc plugins for legacy devices.
