Our lab still video tapes all our of studies. My physician actually views
the studies off of real time because he feels that the dynamics of real
time are optimal. I have the ability to clip store live images onto the
hard drive of my imager as well. The clip stores are nice but, you are
still once again confined to whatever portion of the study that the
technologist stores. There have been times when I have had to go back to
the tape to get added information or make additional measurements. Having
the entire study stored on tape made this available. There have been times
when a study was sent to my physician for review from another institution
and all of the images that he wanted were not available because only
certain images were kept for hard copy.
Another advantage to video has been the ability to utilize information in
talks and slides.
