Specialist Shoulder Surgery Team joins the PACSMail community
News Article on from Sybermedica.com:
Professor Len Funk specialises in arthroscopic (keyhole) and minimally invasive surgery of the shoulder and elbow. He routinely treats elite and professional athletes, with a particular interest in shoulder and elbow injuries in Rugby and contact sports. His shoulder and elbow surgery and rehabilitation uses advanced modern techniques. As such, he is always keen to explore the latest proven technologies and medical advances that will benefit the care his patients receive.
The team has now been connected to PACSMail allowing them to receive scans and reports on-line from imaging centres and enabling these to be shared with referring doctors and specialist colleagues within minutes.
Professor Funk said "I first heard about the benefits of PACSMail at a conference in Leeds last year and I can't believe it took me so long to sign up for an account. It works fantastically and will allow us to radically improve the speed and efficiency of patient care, with almost immediate access to diagnostic imaging anywhere. This is particularly important when dealing with high-level athletes scanned far afield. This is true telemedicine!".
Professor Funk and his team established the ShoulderDoc.co.uk website in 2002 which has become the most popular Shoulder & Elbow information website on the internet, receiving over 150,000 hits per day.
