Perfect for vets: Easily view and share images via DICOM cloud – any time and any place

Today’s high data transmission rates make remotely-hosted services on single servers as well as on collections of servers increasingly attractive. The applications and data stored remotely are accessible wherever a connection to the internet exists.

A daily challenge in veterinary medicine is processing the large volume of images generated by modern equipment. Veterinary diagnostics greatly benefits from advances in high-quality imaging techniques and at the same time is faced with ever-growing data volumes.

ORCA® (OR Technology Cloud Archiving) is a software solution designed to make everyday work in veterinary practices and animal clinics easier, cheaper and more efficient. ORCA® Share is an online platform for sharing images and medical findings with doctors and other authorised persons. The service is scalable, allowing adjustments in storage space as demand grows.

ORCA® Share is a platform for sharing data with external partners. The application ORCA® Share facilitates exchanging images and medical findings with staff, colleagues and specialists. ORCA® Share can also be used to give patients access to medical reports and images. Recipients are sent an secured access link pertaining to specific files via email. There is no need to install software locally.
