Retired IPS officer’s identity proof used by drug peddlers in Ghaziabad

first_imgGhaziabad: A retired senior IPS officer, who had earlier been posted as police chief in Ghaziabad district, has been forged by some unidentified persons as they used his Aadhar card for shipping drugs to USA.Subhash Chandra Gupta, the retired IPS officer and a resident of Sector 9 in Vasundhara area of Ghaziabad, said that he had received an envelope containing drugs which got returned to his address on being un-delivered in USA.”I had received an undelivered envelope by the name of my father KM Gupta, as sender, enclosing with some tablets and a photo copy of my Aadhar card. My father is no more with us while I am also totally unaware with the packet,” said Gupta. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder”Upon asking one of my friends, who is also a doctor, he told me that these tablets are under as drugs while the envelope was returned at my address on getting undelivered in USA, as it mentioned my identity proof,” added Gupta. The officer further said that he has no clue as who has misused his identity proof while the mobile number mentioned on the envelope was also never linked with him or any of his family members. “I was shocked to see the envelope and how my identity proof went into the hands of some unknown persons who used it for peddling drugs abroad. We also tried the mobile number written on the envelope which went invalid while as when we searched it on true caller, it flashed name of some Priya Durgapal from Jammu and Kashmir,” added Gupta. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsMeanwhile police official said that they have registered a case into the matter and investigations are on. “Based on the complaint received, a case under Indian Penal code (IPC) section 420 (cheating and dishonestly including delivery of property) has been registered against unidentified persons. This is a rare case and it’s a matter of investigation as how the identity proof went into the wrong hands.” “We will try and trace the source of these drugs while further probe is on,” said Shlok Kumar, Superintendent of police (city), Ghaziabad. Gupta has served the Ghaziabad district as Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) in year 1997 and was retired at IG rank from Uttar Pradesh police in 2008.last_img read more

Economic crisis drives down applications for patents and trademarks – UN report

A report by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) points to weaker growth in patent filings in 2008, after a 3.7 per cent increase in 2007. The slowdown is attributed to a decrease in patents granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the European Patent Office (EPO).The report said Japan has overtaken the US as the largest issuer of grants for the first time since 1998. The number of patents filed in emerging economies is rapidly increasing, with China’s State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) office replacing the EPO as the fourth largest issuer of grants behind offices in Japan, the US, and the Republic of Korea. “History has shown… that companies and countries which continue to invest in new products and innovation during times of economic recession will be those that will be best positioned to take advantage of the recovery, when it arrives,” said WIPO Director General Francis Gurry.The report also points to a decrease in trademark activity, with China receiving twice as many applications as the US. However, only a fraction of Chinese trademarks are protected in other jurisdictions, whereas nearly 43 per cent of US trademarks are protected abroad.The WIPO-administered Madrid System, which makes it possible to register and renew international trademarks in up to 84 jurisdictions by means of a single application, rose in 2008 by 6.5 percent with nearly 41,000 registrations. Industrial design applications experienced 15 percent growth, due to increased activity in China which accounted for 43 per cent of worldwide application, noted the report.Meanwhile, the two-day Global Symposium for Intellectual Property Authorities concluded today in Geneva with broad agreement on the need to pool efforts at the international level to address the problem of backlogs in patent applications. Addressing the closing session, Mr. Gurry referred to recently published data that showed that the global backlog in unprocessed patent applications around the world in 2007 was a staggering 4.2 million. These backlogs have grown on average at a rate of 8.7 per cent over the past five years. “This is unsustainable,” he said. “We have moved beyond consciousness of the need to address unsustainable processing of patent applications to action,” Mr. Gurry said, noting that the main challenge of the future is to promote coordinated efforts to improve the efficiency of operations and encourage the dissemination of best practices in modernizing the infrastructure, operations and management of intellectual property offices. 18 September 2009Demand for international trademarks and patents dropped last year in the wake of the global economic crisis, with the United States and Europe hit hardest, the United Nations agency entrusted with protecting intellectual property rights said today. read more

Irvingowned railway pleads not guilty to safety violations in oil transport

SAINT JOHN, N.B. — A railway owned by New Brunswick’s Irving family has pleaded not guilty to 24 charges alleging the company violated safety standards in the way it transported oil.The allegations against the New Brunswick Southern Railway Company Ltd., a subsidiary of J.D. Irving Ltd., occurred after a Transport Canada probe set off by the 2013 rail derailment in Lac Megantic, Que., that killed 47 people.According to court documents, half of the 24 charges against the railway related to an alleged failure to create proper shipping documents and the other half allege unqualified personnel were involved in the shipments.These were not violations relating to the Lac Megantic disaster itself, but came from other occasions between Nov. 3, 2012, and July 5, 2013, in the Saint John area.The company was originally due in court Nov. 27 but delays in disclosures from the Crown resulted in the plea coming on Friday.Last fall, Irving Oil was ordered to pay $4 million after pleading guilty to 34 counts stemming from the investigation into the Lac Megantic disaster.The charges under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act resulted from a joint investigation by Transport Canada and the RCMP that was prompted by the deadly train derailment.On July 6, 2013, a train carrying 7.7 million litres of crude oil sped toward the small Quebec town at 104 km/h before derailing.The case against New Brunswick Southern Railway will return to court on June 4 to set trial dates. read more

UN human rights mission contacts Israel seeking cooperation for visit

The three members of the mission – to be led by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson – received a communication from the Permanent Representative of Israel to the UN in Geneva that their request for the country’s cooperation had been forwarded to its Government and would be given careful consideration in light of the unfolding situation and bearing in mind other important impending visits.The team, which also includes former Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez and former African National Congress Secretary-General Cyril Ramaphosa, issued a joint communiqué in Geneva today stressing that their mission “should be seen in tandem with the peacemaking efforts currently underway, notably the mission being undertaken by US Secretary of State Colin Powell.”The three also voiced hope “that a cessation of hostilities and movement on the Tenet and Mitchell plans will go hand-in-hand with measures to protect human rights – in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, as well as in Israel.” In their letter to the Israeli Government, the team had expressed confidence “that the Israeli authorities would share our hope that whatever can be done to protect human life and safety should be done as a matter of utmost urgency.” read more

UN reform regional security and HIVAIDS top subjects of Annans talks in

The Secretary-General began the day with a visit to the Mahatma Gandhi memorial at Rajghat, where he and his wife, Nane, laid a wreath and then offered handfuls of rose petals, considered a sign of respect, at the flower-strewn cremation site.His first meeting was with External Relations Minister Natwar Singh at the historic Hyderabad House before moving on to discussions with President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam at the President’s residence.Following a luncheon hosted by Mr. Singh, Mr. Annan met with opposition leader L.K. Advani and then with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Afterwards he met with Sonia Gandhi, Chairperson of the Indian National Congress Party.The topics discussed during the Secretary-General’s meetings with the Indian officials ranged from UN reform to the regional security situation in India’s neighbourhood, with particular emphasis on the country’s relations with Pakistan and with China, as well as the situation in Nepal.Other subjects included the post-tsunami relief and reconstruction efforts and possibilities for cooperation between India and the UN in disaster preparedness and response, peacekeeping, terrorism, human rights, the situation in the Middle East, including Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and Lebanon.This afternoon, following a meeting with the Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss, the Secretary-General chaired a roundtable on HIV/AIDS, the main focus of which was the stigma and discrimination faced by people in India living with the virus.Saying that fighting HIV/AIDS was a personal priority of his, the Secretary-General asked the participants to describe what they would like to see people in the community do differently to ensure an environment free of stigma, and innovative experiences underway to tackle the problem. He also asked about awareness raising, prevention and care from their perspective. Mrs. Annan drew attention to the need to treat with dignity people living with AIDS, especially women.In the evening, Mr. and Mrs. Annan attended a dinner hosted by the Prime Minister.In a separate programme, Mrs. Annan visited a training and sensitization programme, supported by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), for Delhi police personnel on HIV/AIDS issues, with particular focus on their dealings with marginalized and vulnerable people.To date, 12,000 police officers have received training on the basics of HIV – transmission, prevention, testing, treatment, care and support, stigma and discrimination – as well as myths and misconceptions, gender and rights, legal and ethical issues, and living with HIV-infected and affected people.Mrs. Annan commended the police for their leadership in the drive to create an AIDS-free India, describing them as “torchbearers” in their outreach efforts with colleagues, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), schools and the community at large.Mrs. Annan also met with a group of Indian women activists brought together by the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) to discuss progress on issues facing women such as violence, trafficking, HIV/AIDS, legislative issues, political participation and economic development. read more

Kurt Coleman finding a sunny start in Philadelphia

The professional nature of the NFL means less player-bonding outside of the team than at the college level. “There’s grown men out here,” Coleman said. “They have separate lives outside of what they do at work. In college, you got guys you are going to stay with forever.” Coleman still talks regularly to many people at OSU. “We talked about (me entering the NFL) a little bit,” Hines said. “He just said, ‘Just stay focused and all of that will take care of itself and just keep playing fast.’” Coleman used the same advice to begin his career. “As long as you make the team, that’s really all that matters because what you do with your opportunities is really a reflection of yourself and your character,” Coleman said. Hard work on the field has led to some fun off of it. “I might have jumped the gun because before I made the team I bought a new car,” Coleman said. “A Cadillac Escalade.” With a new ride and a firm position on the team, Coleman is enjoying his situation. “I have been having a lot of fun out here, and it’s been a very good season so far,” he said. “It’s a fun team and a fun atmosphere and a fun city to be in.” Evege expects the Eagles to have fun with their new acquisition. “They got a heck of a ball player in Kurt,” he said. “And they definitely won’t be disappointed.” Despite being a three-year starter at Ohio State and a selection to the 2009 Big Ten All-Conference team, safety Kurt Coleman was not selected until the final round of the NFL draft. Before April’s draft, ESPN gave Coleman a grade of 40, which places him with a group of players described as “underdeveloped prospects that need extra time and coaching in order to compete for a roster spot in the NFL. NFL teams are looking for a ‘diamond in the rough’ with this type of prospect.” Knowing 243 players were selected before the Philadelphia Eagles picked Coleman gave him motivation. “I don’t really look at it like I got to prove people wrong because I know I’m going to prove myself right,” he said. “But yeah, I do have a chip on my shoulder because I feel like I was good enough to be drafted high.” Former teammates also feel he was under-appreciated. “I was a little surprised because I know the type of football player and person he is,” OSU defensive back Donnie Evege said. “I feel like the Philadelphia Eagles got a steal on him because he is definitely … first- or second-round material.” Talent aside, Coleman had to adapt to what comes with being a late selection. “I had a lot of confidence in myself that I was going to be able to come in and learn the system and perform well,” Coleman said. “As a late-round draft pick or a free agent, you have to do it fast and you have to do it often.” Coleman has not only earned a roster spot, but he is second on the Eagles depth chart at safety and one of the first off the bench in obvious passing situations. Friends in Columbus have taken notice. “I heard on special teams he is doing a great job and even getting in a little bit at safety,” OSU safety Jermale Hines said. In filling those two roles, Coleman has made 11 tackles in his young professional career. Despite his success on the field, Coleman had adjustments to make in other areas. “The thing that you do have to get adjusted to is being in the professional world, living a professional life and … going to work each and every day and doing your best,” he said. read more

Improved mobility of compact hydrostaticdrive offhighway vehicles through disconnect feature

first_imgDana Holding Corp has introduced an upgraded drivetrain system for compact, hydrostatic-driven off-highway vehicles with an optional disconnect feature that offers improved performance. Designed for machines like wheel loaders, the system includes the enhanced, two-speed Spicer® Model 367 shift-on-fly hydrostatic transmission with improved shift quality and a disconnect option that allows the vehicle to disengage one of the axles, which helps to reduce power loss, fuel consumption, and tire wear.“Equipment buyers demand increased versatility from their machinery, expecting them to perform efficiently and dependably at one worksite and then moving quickly to be deployed at the next worksite,” said Aziz Aghili, President of Dana Off-Highway Driveline Technologies.  “This new system for compact construction equipment is the latest in a series of Dana innovations that improve productivity and reduce vehicle operating costs.”Extremely compact and versatile, the Spicer Model 367 transmission is engineered with advanced gear-shifting technology that offers a slow working speed and a fast speed for travelling.  It includes a hydraulic motor ranging from 55 to 110 cc, and it can be remote mounted or directly flanged to Spicer components.Other options include hydraulic shifting, gear-engagement and speed sensors, and an integrated spring-applied, hydraulically released (SAHR) parking brake.Designed for hydrostatic and hydrodynamic drivelines, the Spicer Model 211 industrial planetary steer axle has been upgraded to deliver improved wheel-end torque and load capacity, better brake performance, and reduced power loss in severe and high-speed applications.Dana is featuring the Spicer Model 367 transmission and Spicer Model 211 axle at Intermat as part of a complete drivetrain system for a compact telescopic boom handler with 2.7- to 3.6-t lifting capacity.It is configured with Spicer® PowerBoost® hydraulic-hybrid technology, which features a modular design that offers OEMs flexibility in hybrid control performance, including hydraulic start/stop functionality for use with electronically controlled powertrains, integration with hydraulic work circuits, and other options depending on customer powertrain configuration.This system demonstrates how off-highway manufacturers can potentially reduce the engine size for applications that currently require an engine at or slightly above the U.S. EPA’s Tier 4 or Euro 5/6 emissions threshold of 56 kW.last_img read more

Debate Room Should we legalise medicinal cannabis

first_imgIn July, I introduced the Medicinal Cannabis Use Regulation Bill 2016 to the Dáil to try and begin the debate about the medical benefits of medicinal cannabis. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.Positive political responseThe political consensus has been one of positivity. The high profile case of Vera Twomey’s daughter Ava, who has a diagnosis of Dravet Syndrome, has been a game changer.Vera’s campaign for accessibility for treatment has brought about a review from the Department of Health on the viability of medicinal cannabis in Ireland. The report will be concluded by the end of January.Later today I will be looking for support for this bill on the accessibility of medical cannabis for those who need quality assured medicinal cannabis for their medical needs, under a doctor’s recommendation. The bill also calls for a Cannabis Regulatory Authority and a Cannabis Research Institution to be set up.We’ll be following other countriesAt the moment over ten countries in Europe have enacted legislation for the medicinal use of cannabis. Outside Europe nearly thirty states in the United States have made medicinal cannabis legal. Australia did the same recently.Professor Mike Barnes commissioned an All Party Parliamentary report for Westminster on the massive benefits of medicinal cannabis to the sufferers of chronic pain, MS, arthritis, cancer, epilepsy, fibromyalgia and a list of other disorders and conditions.I believe the debate has started in Ireland in regards to medicinal cannabis and things are never going to be the same again. Policy and legislative change has to happen and will happen due to the public clamour for this Government to act.Make it medicineThe time for stigmatisation and criminalisation of citizens who want to treat their own medical needs has to be enacted now.It was the visionary and forward-thinking Irish doctor, Dr William Brooke O’Shaughnessy, who brought the medicinal use of cannabis back into the medical mainstream in the middle of the nineteenth century.Let’s continue his forward-thinking and vision in this century. Make it medicine. Make it happen.Professor Brendan Kelly, professor of Psychiatry at Trinity College DublinCANNABIS IS BAD for mental health. The scientific evidence is now clear on this point.The overwhelming majority of studies demonstrate that cannabis increases the risk of mental ill-health, in the form of depression, schizophrenia and various other conditions.Cannabis is widely used even though illegalAs with all drugs, not everyone is affected equally. Some people seem unaffected and other factors are invariably also relevant in each individual case.But the scientific evidence is now clear that cannabis presents a significant risk to mental health and should be avoided. The fact that decriminalisation does not produce a rise in mental illness simply demonstrates that cannabis is very widely used even though it is illegal.So what should policymakers do?Saying that cannabis presents a substantial risk to mental health does not provide a clear answer as to whether or not cannabis should be decriminalised.Drugs policies are generally very inconsistent in theory and even more inconsistent in practice. In Ireland, some harmful substances are legal but their use is regulated (e.g. nicotine and alcohol), whereas other harmful substances are simply illegal (e.g. cocaine).It is not at all clear what lessons can be learned from experiences with these substances.Sensible drugs policy should focus on reducing the harm caused by all drugs, including cannabis. Given the widespread harm drugs cause in society, pragmatism should trump ideology. Preventing or relieving the suffering caused by addiction should trump short-term political tactics or populist media posturing.There are better painkillers available to usThe fact that cannabis presents a risk to mental health should certainly inform drugs policy, but it does not necessarily mean that cannabis should remain illegal, or that medicinal use should be avoided. The situation is far more nuanced than that.Cannabis will never be an ideal medicine for pain relief, not least because there are other non-dependence producing medications which can and should remain first-line agents in the management of pain.Many of these other medications do not present risks to mental health and they still offer substantial benefits to people with chronic pain or enduring physical health problems.If, however, these first-line agents fail to produce sufficient benefits, or cannabis-based products are the only agents that work in particular cases, then cannabis-based medications should be permitted in specific circumstances.As ever, pragmatism should trump ideology, and the absolute imperative to relieve avoidable suffering should trump everything else.What do you think?

The Private Members’ Bill would also regulate a pharmacy-based model.But does medicinal cannabis actually work? And doesn’t cannabis have an adverse effect on some users’ mental health? These are important, unanswered questions about its use.We ask a politician and a doctor to give their views.Gino Kenny, People Before Profit TD for Dublin Mid-West Source: Niall CarsonWHEN I GOT elected last February one of the issues that I wanted to highlight was accessibility to medicinal cannabis.I had very limited knowledge about the issue prior to being elected.

Toy Tuesday The 11 Best Pokemon Toys

first_img Mattel Unveils Fashionable ‘Star Wars’ x Barbie DollsToy Tuesday: Yo! It’s The Best ‘G.I. Joe’ Toys Stay on target Has there ever been a video game franchise as toyetic as Nintendo’s Pokemon series? Hundreds of adorable (well, mostly) battling monsters, each one with its own personality. Sure, you’ve got the big names like Pikachu and Charizard, but there are hundreds of other pocket monsters with dedicated fan bases. Naturally, there are tons of super awesome toys for all ages, from super-detailed action figures to adorable plushes. Here’s our rundown of the best Pokemon toys you can get.Brock, Geodude & Vulpix PVC FiguresGeodude is real, and strong, and he’s my friend. Japanese toymaker Megahouse has produced a whole line of cool PVC figurines of the Pokemon anime’s main cast, both humans and monsters. For the money, our favorite is the one with perennial sidekick and wanna-be ladies man Brock and his rocky companion. Throw in a charming little foxlike Vulpix and you have a trio of characters that will look awesome on your toy shelf. Note that these are mostly non-poseable, but you can turn Vulpix’s head.AdChoices广告Get them at Amazon.com144 Pokemon FiguresYou know, we’re not sure that this cavalcade of small plastic Pocket Monsters is a legit licensed product, but sometimes you have to bend the rules a little bit. And if you really want to fill up your Pokedex and raise an army of creatures at a decent price, this is the best deal on the market. Each figure measures 3/4 of an inch or a little higher, so they’re basically like the kind you’d get from a decent vending machine. Sorry if you have a particular favorite Pokemon — the assortment is random, and the quality isn’t museum-level. But it’s nearly 150 Pokemon for a little over twenty bucks. C’mon.Get it at Amazon.comFunko Pop PikachuThe little yellow electric mouse somehow managed to become one of the most iconic cartoon characters of the modern era, and there’s loads of Pikachu merch out there. Everett, Washington-based Funko Pop of course got on the bandwagon with a Target-exclusive version of the little bugger, and it’s a charming and cute sculpt with a pair of pointy ears that stick way up. This one is getting harder and harder to find so if you’re building a Pop collection you might want to act fast.Get it at Amazon.comS.H. Figuarts Ash Ketchum Action FigureThe protagonist of the Pokemon anime, cheerful young Ash Ketchum is motivated to be the very best, like no one ever was. With his trusty Pikachu by his side, he challenges gym leaders and contends with Team Rocket in episode after episode (plus the movies). Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line is famous for clever articulation and accurate design, and this five inch Ash is no different. The figure is extremely poseable, and comes with two heads (one with cap, one without), a mount so Pikachu can ride on his shoulder, a Pokeball and more.Get it at Amazon.comXerneas Vinyl FigureOne of the Legendaries introduced in Pokemon X, Xerneas is a stag-like creature with a massive crest of antlers in glowing rainbow colors when it’s getting ready to use its unique power to bequeath eternal life. It’s one of the cooler designs of that game, so this poseable vinul figure is a must for any hardcore collector. Standing seven inches tall, it’s constructed very sturdily for display purposes, able to stand on its own and move all four limbs and the neck.Get it at Amazon.comPlush Sleepy CuboneOne of my personal favorite Generation 1 Pokemon is Cubone, the skull-helmeted lizard that hangs out in the seven-story tower in Lavender Town used as a burial ground for deceased monsters. Clutching a legbone in its hand, Cubone mourns its dead mother Marowak by wearing her skull over its face. Weird flex, but OK. This cute and cuddly plush Pokemon measures six and a half inches long and is settling in for a depression-fueled nap. Very relatable.Get it at Amazon.comPikachu Coin BankThe specter of capitalism does loom over the Pokemon world, and if you want to have enough Master Balls to catch those shinies you’ll need to save up. Thankfully, your little electric mouse friend is here to help you. Put a coin on the yellow space and push it down gently and Pikachu will pop open the lid, reach out with a yellow paw and snatch your change to add to your hoard. While it’s doing that, the little guy also emits one of a staggering 200 different phrases and sounds. Not bad for an animal with a one-word vocabulary.Get it at ThinkGeekS.H. Figuarts Team Rocket Action FiguresPrepare for trouble — and make it double. The recurring antagonists of the Pokemon anime, Jessie and James are a duo of exploitative trainers who seek to use the trusting little monsters’ abilities to seek fortune and fame. Accompanied by their Meowth, a rare Pokemon who can speak in English as opposed to just repeating his own name, they launch all manner of schemes and scams before being eventually defeated. These exceptional action figures from Bandai are super poseable and come with a pair of alternate expressions each as well as spare hands so James can hold his trademark rose.Get them at Amazon.comMega Construx GyaradosPokemon is one of the few licenses that Lego hasn’t snapped up the rights to, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t brick-based construction kits for your favorite monsters. Mattel’s Mega Construx line got them, and they’ve made a number of pretty sweet sets. The mighty serpent Gyarados was one of the first game’s most cleverly hidden secrets, requiring players to raise a pathetic, defenseless Magikarp to level 20 before evolving it. This super-cool set lets you build your own instead, using 488 pieces that are compatible with LEGO if you want to put together your own inter-universe crossover.Get it at Amazon.comPokemon Red Trainer Action FigureYou can forget about astrology or the Meyers-Briggs personality types — the only real way to know a person’s soul is to find out which of the original three Pokemon starters they chose. Luckily for you, this super nice figure from Good Smile comes with Charmander, Bulbasaur and Squirtle. The protagonist of the original game is on his journey across the Kanto region to catalog all of the native creatures in his Pokedex. With smooth but flexible joints, a removable backpack and Pokeball, this little guy is ready to catch some creatures.Get it at Amazon.comMimikyu PlushEvery once in a while the geniuses at Game Freak (the developers of the Pokemon games) come up with a monster design that is so perfect for the age we live in that it instantaneously becomes a meme. Case in point: Mimikyu, who debuted in 2016’s Sun and Moon games, is the “imposter syndrome” Pokemon. A Ghost/Fairy type, Mimikyu is insecure and disguises itself with a clumsy Pikachu disguise because it thinks that will help it make friends. We can completely relate and snapped up this eight inch stuffed replica right away.Get it at Amazon.comMore on Most Powerful Dragon Ball Toys11 Best Movie-Based Lego Sets11 Goopiest Slime Toyslast_img read more

The transportable version will expand the clinical utility of the Dilon 6800, by providing the flexibility of transporting the camera to areas of need that may not have high enough patient volumes to justify a full-time system — such as small community hospitals. The flexibility of the new Dilon 6800 Access reportedly offers a broad range of added value by enhancing diagnostic capabilities, increasing revenue and controlling costs.Shared Medical Technology (SMT) in Rice Lake, WI is the first center to use the Dilon 6800 Access. SMT has been providing community hospitals and clinics with diagnostic services for over 30 years.

Incidental lesions are discovered in up to 30 percent of imaging studies, yet follow-up is generally poor. It is well known that the earlier cancer is detected, the higher the probability of long-term survival. Additionally, costs for cancer treatment increase dramatically when started in later stages of the disease. The new release is designed to provide improved patient care solutions in these situations to radiologists and multidisciplinary teams.The new module allows radiologists to tag a finding as incidental directly in their workflow. A web-based worklist of all patients with incidental findings is then created by the software. Follow-up can be automatically scheduled based on protocols such as Fleischner Society Guidelines, or a care coordinator can set custom dates. Patient calls can be logged directly in the worklist and letters can also be generated right from the web-based queue. Notifications are sent to appropriate clinicians when a follow-up has not taken place in the indicated timeframe. Patient information is also highlighted in red in the worklist to ensure all patients receive proper care.Other features and enhancements included in QIDS 3.0 are: improvements in therapy response protocol management and reporting, integration with MModal Structured Elements, and enhancements to the Rapid Precise Metrics (RPM) functionality for faster confirmation and easier analysis of lesion metrics.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 08, 2019 Half of Hospital Decision Makers Plan to Invest in AI by 2021 August 8, 2019 — A recent study conducted by Olive AI explores how hospital leaders are responding to the imperative read more center_img Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.
