Initial experience with patient visible light images obtained simultaneously with portable radiographs

Academic Article


  • OBJECTIVE. Visible light images in the form of point-of-care photographs obtained at the time of medical imaging can be useful for detecting wrong-patient errors and providing image-related clinical context. Our goal was to implement a system to automatically obtain point-of-care patient photographs along with portable radiographs. CONCLUSION. We discuss one academic medical center's initial experience in integrating the system into the clinical workflow and initial use cases ranging from cardiothoracic and abdominal imaging to musculoskeletal imaging, for which such point-of-care photographs were deemed clinically beneficial.
