New miniPACS platform targets orthopaedic practice applications

Carestream Health : 05 March, 2008  (New Product)
Carestream Health has launched a new miniPACS platform designed for orthopaedic practices in the United States and Canada.
The MX-Orthopedic miniPACS platform is offered as a web-server configuration along with concurrent access user licenses. The orthopaedic diagnostic solution allows for image review and use of advanced measurement tools (Cobb angle, coxometry, goniometry and pelvis measurements); long-length image review; edge enhancement; as well as image viewing and adjustment options.

The new solution includes Carestream Health’s streaming technology to speed digital image transfer even over low bandwidth networks. Floating user licenses allow a registered user to simultaneously log into the web server from multiple exam rooms or locations through a single user login account.

Orthopaedic practices can capture digital images using Kodak Directview Classic and Elite CR Systems. These new compact, single-cassette systems deliver exceptional value by accepting standard Kodak Directview CR cassettes and performing a wide range of imaging applications including long-length exams.

The configurable and scalable design of the Classic and Elite platform allows each user to customise the equipment to meet the facility’s needs and budget. The new Classic and Elite CR systems can also help improve productivity and workflow with automatic image rendering that eliminates the need for technologists to identify each exam projection, and by allowing users to create customised settings for image presentation (by exam type/body part), which reduces the need for clinicians to make adjustments.

Images can be output using the new Kodak Dryview 5800 Laser Imager, which is designed for orthopaedic practices, multi-physician groups, imaging centres and clinics. MX-Orthopedic users also have the ability to outsource archiving of digital images and patient information through Kodak Carestream Hosted Information Management. The off-site archiving solution is available as an ASP service model and reduces the maintenance and overhead of managing a medical archive on-site.
