X-ray software wanted

OEM partnerships provide numerous benefits to manufacturers who are interested in combing their X-ray systems with our dicomPACS®DX-R acquisition software under a chosen brand name. Taking advantage of an existing X-ray software reduces development time and costs.

dicomPACS®DX-R is THE software for the complete integration of X-ray generators, stands, detectors, CR systems, image processing, file management, patient administration and PACS (including cloud computing). dicomPACS®DX-R is a professional acquisition software for X-ray images generated by various X-ray detector systems (DR) and CR units (imaging plates reader). The software also controls the operation of X-ray generators and X-ray units manufactured by diverse companies, thus ensuring an efficient and orderly workflow. The user-friendly and straightforward visual interface functions via touchscreen and mouse.

Daily work routines are made easier by an intuitive design and an array of integrated functions. This includes a multimedia X-ray positioning guide as well as special aids for human medicine, e.g., Chiro Tools (diagnostic tools for efficient analyses) and a NUCCA tool set.

dicomPACS®DX-R software can readily be integrated with existing information management systems. Furthermore, X-ray images can be evaluated using the dicomPACS® viewer module included in the acquisition software. Thus, the system functions as a fully-fledged diagnostic workstation with the option to upgrade to a PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System).

 

 

Benefits of the dicomPACS®DX-R software (CE, FDA 510[k] and Health Canada certified):

User friendliness and smooth workflow:
  • Modern graphical user interface (GUI) adaptable to almost any language 
  • Touchscreen operation – to ensure quick and efficient work and a smooth workflow
  • Capture of patient data via DICOM Worklist, BDT/GDT, HL7 or other protocols – data may also be captured manually
  • Use of DICOM Procedure Codes for the transfer of all relevant examination data directly from the connected patient management system (HIS/RIS)
  • Freely configurable body parts with more than 400 projections and numerous possible adjustments in human and veterinary medicine already included
  • Safe and fast registration of emergency patients
  • Allows the user to switch between examinations of a patient, for instance to avoid having to re-position the patient frequently
  • Allows the user to subsequently add images to an examination, even after that examination has already been completed
  • Special tools for veterinary medicine, such as an extra dialog box for patient and owner data, integrated hip dysplasia measuring, special image filters, multi generator operation for alternating between mobile and stationary X-ray systems and much more…
  • Entry of recurring examination procedures as macros, e.g. thorax screenings or pre-purchase examination for horses
  • Fully integrated radiographic positioning guide for each examination in human and veterinary medicine incl. comprehensive notes, photos, videos and correct X-ray images
  • Option to control a digital X-ray system via wireless remote incl. display of the worklist, preview of the image taken for checking and much more
Flexible image acquisition:
  • Integration of various flat panel and CR systems by different manufacturers
  • Option to connect up to 3 flat panels (bucky, wall stand and mobile) to one system
  • The configurable generator interface enables the user to control X-ray generators or X-ray systems by different manufacturers, delivering the generator settings directly from the software
  • Option for the parallel operation of a flat panel and a CR system included in the standard package. The user has the choice to take the next image with either the flat panel or the integrated CR system. This flexibility also provides an excellent emergency concept in case of a defect flat panel.
  • AEC (Automatic Exposure Control) and ARP (Anatomical Programmed Radiography) allow the user to automatically adjust all X-ray options for each projection with an option to subsequently edit the image manually
  • Integration of dose area product meters (DAP) – the readings are saved directly to the relevant image
  • Electronic X-ray log

Other advantages of dicomPACS®DX-R

The professsional dicomPACS®DX-R image processing:
  • Perfect images every time – few adjustments needed
  • Integrated software for automatic image optimisation
  • Professional image processing – adaptable to different types of examinations according to customer demands 
  • Special image processing procedures ensure optimal images over a wide range of X-ray parameter settings (e.g., dose reduction) 
  • Bones and soft tissue can be examined in one image for a better diagnosis
  • Details of bones and microstructures are very easy to recognise
  • Noise reduction
  • Black mask (automatic shutters)
  • Automatic removal of grid lines when using fixed grids
  • ADPC (automatic dead pixel correction): Automatically eliminates dead pixels – this reduces the need to calibrate the flat panel
  • AIAA (automatic image area analysis): Automatically analyses each image for soft tissue and bone structures and applies the most suitable image processing algorithms
  • MFLA (multi frequency level analysis): Analyses each image on various frequency levels for ideal sharpness and high subtle contrast
  • ANF (automatic noise filter): Algorithm for optimal noise reduction 
  • GLI (gridless imaging): Exposures without grid. Enables the display of an image as if it had been taken with a grid – useful for supine chest exposures (bedside)
  • AGLS (automatic grid line suppression): Automatically removes gridlines from flat panel images, suitable for grids from 100 LPI to 200 LPI 
  • IBC (intelligent brightness control): Automatically displays the image at the ideal level of brightness 
  • ACO (automatic contrast optimisation): Automatic contrast equalisation across the entire image –  this enables the optimal display of soft tissue and bones at the same time 
  • ABBS (automatic black border shutter): Automatically darkens all parts of an image outside the collimated area – varying degrees of transparency are available and manual adjustments are easy to make.
Outstandingly sophisticated image diagnosis, e.g.:
  • Integrated dicomPACS viewer for image diagnosis, processing, and storage in an SQL database, including image manipulation, export options, layout adjustments, user interface customisation and much more
  • Stepless zoom, PAN, magnification tool, ROI, crop, rotate, mirror etc.
  • Insertion of image annotations, e.g. text, arrow, ellipse
  • Measurement of distances, angles, areas and density
  • Extended acquisition functionality for use in mammography*: Specialised organ tree, mammography Hanging Protocols, documentation of additional examination parameters such as filter, thickness, angle, implant and many more
    *Pending CE and FDA conformity approval for the module
  • Adjustment of window/level options as well as gamma correction, sharpening filters and noise suppression 
  • Many additional functions such as Chiro Tools, calculation of Cobb's angle, pelvic obliquity measurements, automated generation of medical reports etc. 
  • Upgrade to integrated image management system (PACS) possible 
  • Extended acquisition functionality for use in mammography*: Specialised organ tree, Mammography Hanging Protocols, Documentation of additional examination parameters such as filter, thickness, angle, implant and many more
    *Pending CE and FDA conformity approval for the module
