Round Rock, TX – November 26, 2007 – Dell is partnering with the American College of Radiology to outfit a state-of-the-art interactive radiology education center.
Dell technology will power the ACR’s Education Center, where radiologists will study the latest clinical techniques and continuing education-accredited courses in a hands-on environment. The center will help radiologists gain knowledge and expertise by working on individual leading-edge workstations with a variety of world-class PACS systems that replicate their clinical practice.
“We’re committed to providing our members the most innovative and advanced educational opportunities,” said Dr. Harvey L. Neiman, ACR executive director. “Access to cutting-edge Dell technology helps ensure that America’s radiologists are trained in the latest techniques, empowering them to better serve their patients.”
The new education center, slated to open in early 2008, will be equipped with Dell PrecisionTM workstations, and will feature Dell/EMC storage and Dell PowerEdgeTM servers. ACR worked with Dell to certify a wide variety of vendors’ workstation technology on Dell hardware to help ensure participants have access to a broad spectrum of real-world systems.
“This partnership between Dell and ACR will provide radiologists across the nation access to the best technology and tools to help doctors become even more knowledgeable and experienced,” said Dr. Keith Dreyer, vice chairman of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital.
The ACR Education Center, located in Reston, Va., will give attendees access to the largest repository of annotated data sets and case studies as well as mentoring from an experienced faculty.
“Working with ACR gives Dell the opportunity to help to provide the best radiology education available — an important aspect of having a world-class health care system,” said James Coffin, vice president, Dell Health Care and Life Sciences. “Technology is a key pillar in achieving efficiencies and improvements in healthcare and Dell is committed to working with the industry to simplify technology and ultimately improve diagnoses and patient care.”
