Digital radiography systems for
fascinating insights into the interior of
works of art and artefacts
For over 100 years, digital radiography has been a recognised part of comprehensive art technological examinations for restoration, purchase of works of art or for providing evidence in forgery trials.
Our portable X-ray systems, optimised for the needs of the art world, ensure ease of use and outstanding image quality, accurately reflecting the material diversity and inner complexity of an artist's work. Our lightweight, digital X-ray solutions are successfully used in several museums worldwide, have already contributed to the rediscovery of valuable paintings and provide valuable services for art historical investigations and restorers.
The durable, low-maintenance X-ray technology "Made in Germany" offers you a very good price-performance ratio. The easy-to-use X-ray software integrated in all systems was also developed by OR Technology. Powerful image processing procedures allow material- and application-specific optimisation according to your needs. In addition, the integrated reporting tool supports you in easily creating professional appraisals with various report templates and the integration of X-ray images and photos.
Let us preserve our art treasures together. We at OR Technology are happy to contribute. Ask us for an individual offer.

Archiving and long-term storage are the key elements of any modern digital imaging system. The latest as well as the archived data need to be accessible in the short-term and a high level of security against failure are the requirements for such systems.
dicondePACS® meets these requirements and is a safe investment for the future due to its archive structure (online/offline as archive copy). With this "double" archive, you can manage and store all your data in one spot.
The current images of the image-giving modality are stored on the PACS image server of your network on a so-called RAID system. A hard disk RAID still works even if a single disk is defective.
Additionally, all new data is saved on an extra space as daily backup. Multiple storage guarantees that even data not yet backed up by the daily backup is redundant. Older images and documents are stored on inexpensive mass storage devices in the network. In this way, the entire archive can be kept online.
The daily backup with the dicondePACS® backup module can be carried out either on a hard disk, DVD, a streamer or a network storage. Storage on optical or magneto-optical storage media ensures the minimum long-term archiving of ten years legally required in the X-ray Ordinance.
Speed is key
Images of the last months stored on the server are available at any workstation within seconds due to modern hard drives, RAID system and fast network connection. Older images are saved several times on local PCs with conventional hard disks, the so-called PC farm. Loading times from this area of the archive are only slightly slower than from the image server. Even in the event of a failure of a PC farm computer, working is still possible without any problems and without additional downtime due to the standard double storage.
Cloud-based archiving of X-ray images with ORCA® Archive.
With ORCA® it is possible to archive images and documents centrally, taking into account the highest security standards, or to share them online with colleagues and experts, for example to obtain a second opinion. It is also easy to share images and documents.
ORCA® Archive makes it possible to archive image material directly from the modalities (digital X-ray, CT, MRI, sonography, etc.) or from the PACS in the cloud. This archive solution is also used as an additional backup, among other things. The images in the cloud can be viewed and diagnosed in full resolution and quality (DICOM) with the browser-based viewer (ORCA View) integrated in ORCA wherever there is internet access. If another PACS is available, it is possible to download the images to the respective computer from ORCA® in order to view them in one's own viewer.
You can easily and quickly connect with experts and reviewers worldwide via our ORCA® Cloud. To meet your high security standards, all servers are located in Europe.
ORCA® Share also enables better use of expert resources. An enterprise-grade platform for securely transferring and sharing images or data offers you, your staff or a reviewer a fast exchange. The recipient receives protected access to the shared images via an email link. No separate software needs to be installed.
The reporting tool integrated into the software helps to easily create inspection reports. It ensures convenient creation of various report templates (e.g. work reports) incl. use of Word macros with integrated images. Optionally, a digital dictation system with speech recognition can also be used.
On an X-ray image, different materials that are positioned directly next to each other or on top of each other, such as paints, stones or metal layers, can be distinguished. In the case of works of art such as marble or stone sculptures as well as carvings, different radiation doses and exposure times also make it possible to show internal material structures. X-ray diagnostics of works of art is absolutely non-destructive, which means that the X-ray beam does not change the material in any way.
OR Technology offers a special exchange service for X-ray detectors so that you can resume your work immediately in the event of a malfunction. This includes the free loan of a comparable replacement detector for the period of repair of the detector for which the service package was ordered. This service applies regardless of whether the detector is still under warranty or not.
