XR PACS archive is one in terms of functionality, stability and price very competitive digital image archive.
XR PACS archvie is due to the good scalability for both small and large radiology ideal.
The use of commonly today available hardware allows it to offer digital image archives with lots of functionality, at competitive prices.
XR PACS archive is a disk-based online archive and uses a so-called RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks). Such systems represent a relatively low investment and can easily be upgraded and expanded. > Workflow
variable & scalable
Depending on the design and size of the RAID archive, images can be retained online and stored for 1-10 years.
With the support of image compression by JPEG lossless, XR PACS archive can at least save half of the storage space through a 2- to 4-fold compression.
Furthermore, the RAIDs can be stacked. This allows to multiply the space by constant costs. To use the archive volume optimally, you can define in XR PACS archive, how long certain studies will remain available online. You determine, for example, that X-rays 2 years, sectional images 4 years and mammograms six years should be repealed. Older footage is then automatically removed from the online archive, but will remain in long-term archive. This leads to a significant data and cost reduction.
Above the online store, it will also continuously backed up to streamerbands or long-term archivs. Such LTO tapes have a 30-year durability guarantee. This backup method is also legally recognized as long-term archive and you will advance as possible after a preservation mandate.
automated & performant
With XR PACS archive an automated image distribution is possible within your radiology.
XR PACS supports the function of prefetching. Once a patient was registered in XR, whose preimages are automatically, without manual intervention dearchived and summoned to the respective findingsplaces. The current imaging studies automatically distributed immediately after the examination to all or certain diagnostic workstations.
Thus all images are available at the examination, including those from previous studies and there is no waiting time when calling the shots.
The integration and supply of workstations from a third-party with images is easily possible with XR PACS archive.
active & controlled
With XR PACS archive based on a configurable rule system, an active control of the image currents are applied and consistently good performance while archiving, image distribution, and prefetching.
The in XR PACS archive contained precise definition of the image distribution enables network traffic to keep to a minimum and ensure fast transfers. Even in large organizations with a fully digital radiology equipment and examination techniques with a high number of images (cardiac CT, virtual MR colonoscopy) the transmission of individual picturestudies takes over from the modality to the archive to the workstations on average about 1.5 minutes.
query image from an external
XR PACS query allows the access to images on workstations and third-party archives. Current CT & MR modalities requiring large amounts of data to generate a treatment of the image content to their respective consoles.
XR PACS query achieves the image request from vendor-specific applications and workstations. By the additional archiving of structured reports and presentation states are also CAD results, 3D reconstructions and annotations saved, thereby increasing the quality of your diagnosis.
Also images from a possibly existing external long-term archive can be queried by XR PACS query. This allows a fully automatic retrieving and the images are again available internally.
distribution of images to external
XR PACS archive supports the Dicom-Wado standard. This makes it possible to connect any compatible Dicom viewer via the Internet or intranet to the PACS.
The WADO technology is used both in teleradiology as well as hospital networks and in inter-and intranet applications. Through the dynamic adjustment of image compression, the optimal mix of image quality and transmission speed can be selected depending on the case of application.
intelligent image search & easy control
XR PACS archive includes its own search function, so you can search flexibile to image content.
So the patient search is complemented with DICOM information. This will take you quickly to the desired image data or you get an overview of how many trials with certain characteristics were archived in XR PACS.
For RT workstations, XR PACS archive offers a checklist to give an instant view of whether the footage has been archived complete and correct. In addition, a viewer is available to check and control the quality of the stored images.
With the seamless integration of XR RIS & PACS, in case of error it can be corrected by any PC again. If patients were mixed up unwittingly during the entry, this can be immediately repaired on the RT workstation.
compatible & integrated
XR PACS archive archives images from all major modalities: digital radiography, mammography, fluoroscopy, C-arms, ultrasound, bone density, CT, MRI, PET, NUK, imaging plates and scanned images.
The integration of the various investigation units is realized by means of XR PACS store and the DICOM standards. Thus, of all imaging modalities that support these standard images are received and they are ready for further processing.
Examples of companies whose procedures, imaging plate systems, readers and diagnostic workstations have been integrated into various projects by us: Agfa, Fuji, GE, Giotto, Carestream, Aycan, Nuclear Diagnostics, Philips, Sectra, Siemens, Swiss-Ray, Toshiba, etc.
