Elsevier To Unveil New Amirsys Diagnostic Decision Support and Education Solutions at RSNA 2014

Enhanced STATdx 6 for radiology professionals and RADPrimer for radiology residency programs on display at annual Chicago conference

Philadelphia, PA, December 1, 2014

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today unveiled enhancements two Amirsys solutions, STATdx and RADPrimer, at the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting in Chicago.

The new STATdx 6, a diagnostic decision support solution for radiology professionals, has a new look and feel and a flexible platform to continuously bring radiologists current content for confident diagnostic decisions. The platform upgrades will allow STATdx to serve new media types in the future, such as image stacks and annotated video content. Radiologists using the new STATdx 6 can now search across 200,000 high-quality images for reference and decision collaboration with physicians.

RADPrimer, a comprehensive radiology curriculum tool, now enables faculty to assign reading materials and tests across the entire curriculum and has a new Pre-Call Readiness exam, making it a virtual teaching assistant. In addition, RADPrimer's assessment engine now gives residents the ability to take practice quizzes across multiple disciplines and difficulty levels. All 7,000 questions have been updated and categorized as Case-Based or Mulitple Choice.

Earlier this year Elsevier acquired Amirsys, creators of STATdx and RADPrimer.

"For the past 10 years, Amirsys has come to RSNA with vital new information and solutions to help radiologists make confident decisions," says Dr. Ric Harnsberger, Professor of Radiology at the University of Utah, and Vice President of Product and Technology, Elsevier Clinical Solutions. "This year at RSNA we are excited to join the Elsevier team. Together we will continue to provide the solutions radiologists depend on as the authority in radiology."

In honor of her accomplishment and contributions to RADPrimer, Elsevier will host the RADPrimer Resident Competition in the Elsevier booth, #1114.
