Trigg County Hospital purchased a new software program that is expected to save the hospital money and bring it to the forefront of radiology technology at their meeting Thursday.

PACS, or Picture Archiving and Communications System, has been entirely developed by the Samsung Corporation and allows doctors and radiologists to view, store and share CT Scans and other radiology products over the internet and compact disc.

The product received nothing but praise in an exhibition given prior to the regular board meeting last Thursday. Board members Don Leibe, Randolph Crenshaw, Linda Burnam, Dr. Mike Gross and Bob Noel were on hand to see the presentation by Scott Wasson, president and CEO of Radiology Services and Sales Representative Richie Throgmorton.

“There are so many things it will allow the doctors to do,” Throgmorton said.

Doctors can now enhance images by lightening and darkening, rotating and a horde of other tricks that can potentially increase patient care, he said.
