Innovative digital PACS solution for medical practices and hospitals

dicomPACS®, the PACS software of OR Technology, is a sophisticated, high-tech image management solution based on vendor neutral archive technology (VNA) and ideally suited for private practices and hospitals. With dicomPACS®, all images generated by digital X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound devices, as well as diverse documents (e.g., doctors' letters, medical findings, medical history, faxes) are stored in a digital patient folder and readily accessible. Our carefully designed archive and backup solutions guarantee quick access to all data and high security standards (in keeping with the German Medical Devices Act). Furthermore, the software can easily be integrated into all common information management systems (e.g., KIS, RIS and EPA). 

The dicomPACS® software acquires, processes, transfers and archives images as well as other documents. The program was designed, developed and tested in cooperation with practising doctors in order to provide a user-friendly tool for everyday medical care.

dicomPACS® is a smart choice for today and a wise investment for the future. The system is standardized, modular, and can be expanded as well as updated. Your data and archives are structured according to DICOM standards.

Picture Archiving and Communication System

dicomPACS® is a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) that performs many different, at times highly complex, tasks. It connects, controls and manages everything related to your images: from image acquisition and the compilation of diagnostic reports, to archiving and transferring image data. 

The program ensures that high quality images can be distributed and viewed quickly, and without complications (e.g., via a web server). The software is extremely flexible and adaptable to new applications.

    Dr. Andreas Bollkämper, radiologist at Röntgeninstitut Schlossgarten, Chairman of the Professional Association of German Radiologists in Hamburg: “In the company OR Technology we have now found a partner for digital image management whose dicomPACS® software solution meets all our demands of up to date, cost efficient operation, providing constant and excellent image quality. "

  • Reference Warnow-Klinik Buetzow
    Thomas Blum, the clinic's Managing Director: “The digital X-ray solution by OR Technology allows us to provide optimal service to our patients. This allows our doctors, for instance, to access the required images at the push of a button, to overlay and compare them and thus monitor the course of the healing process."

  • Reference Latvian hospital Jekabpils
    Dr Igors Malikovs and Dr Ivars Zvidris: "In addition, we save costs since we don't have to print out images any more. Our printing volume now amounts to only 10 % of what it was previously.“

  • Reference Stephan Grunert, Eichstädt, Germany
    "Our orthopaedic practice is highly satisfied with the implementation and and has come to appreciate the enormous benefits of digital X-ray and the fantastic voice recognition facility."

  • Reference Feldman Foot & Ankle Clinic in Calgary, Alberta Canada
    Dr. Ziv Feldman: "The advantages provided by the image management solution software for podiatric X-ray diagnosis is almost revolutionary. Angle measurements and special features including zoom and magnification can be done in a few seconds right in front of the patient."

  • Reference joint orthopedic practice in Munich, Germany
    Dr Bernhard Klein: "The entire installation including training took just 2½ days and was done during normal working hours. Since its introduction in 1998 the system has operated without fault or interruption."

  • Reference practice for radiology and nuclear medicine Zweibrücken, Germany
    Dr. Andreas Dawid, Dr. Martina Thomson and Rolf Wiehn: “In comparison to our previous system, dicomPACS® is much clearer and much more flexible. It is easy to operate and more customizable. DICOM viewers are now installed on non-diagnostic workstations and allow us to prepare for examinations faster and with better quality. A significant advantage is the much faster and better service ..."
