Standard Chiropractic Tools
Diagnostic tools for optimal treatment to Gregory & Grostic
Are you looking for software that follows the individual steps of the NUCCA method and is more than a simple analysings tool? Our Upper Cervical (NUCCA) and Standard Chiropractic Tools support you, optionally guiding you and simplifying and optimising your entire workflow. The software was developed and tested in close cooperation with leading NUCCA doctors from the USA and Canada.
The convenient usage of the software supports you in treating your patients professionally and guarantees a high patient throughput as well as maximum success.
Your patients will be satisfied and happy to recommend you to others.
This comprehensive software solution for chiropractors and NUCCA doctors has been used successfully in Canada and the USA for years and supports your colleagues in their daily practice.
Our PACS as well as our X-ray software for image acquisition, reporting and archiving has already proven itself several thousand times worldwide. A connection to your practice management system is of course guaranteed.

The Chiro Tools have been developed in cooperation with leading experts from the USA and Canada and offer great possibilities for diagnosing accurately as well as for planning further treatment.
The tool creates a vertical or horizontal axis, depending on the direction in which the mouse pointer is moved.
This tool is used to mark perpendicular lines on existing or yet to be drawn baselines. The divergence of the base line from the closer axis (horizontal or vertical) is displayed by default.
This tool is used to draw lines on each vertebra along the spine in a lateral view and to detect their distances (in mm or inch).
Horizontal or vertical level
This tool calculates the horizontal or vertical level. By default the nearer axis is used for calculation.
An arc is drawn through three defining points and the diameter of the corresponding circle is displayed by default.
This tool is used to draw an arc in the lateral view of the spine. The annotation uses a fixed radius set by default to 220 mm. Radius or degree can be adjusted.
The vertebrae line is generated from the center points of 2x3 manually set points along the spinal canal and and displays the side of laterality and the lateral divergence in degrees.
This tool calculates the center point between two points.
This tool compares the distances between three set points (between point 1 and point 2 and between point 2 and point 3) and shows the longer distance.
This tool is a measurement that is calculated automatically after two simple clicks which generate two horizontal lines showing the distance between these two axes.
dicomPACS® 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 at 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 dicomPACS® 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.
We warmly recommend this maintenance contract to all customers for very manageable monthly costs.
