Cardiac Imaging Enhancements to Browser-Based WebWorks Viewer
November 27, 2011 – BRIT Systems, Inc., announced new cardiac imaging enhancements to WebWorks, a 100% browser-based viewer. The new tools for cardiac ultrasound and optional MPR capabilities are part of Roentgen Works version 1.4, which is being demonstrated in BRIT Systems’ booth #4200 at RSNA 2011.
The WebWorks enhancements to the Cine tool include onscreen start/stop buttons for each multi-frame image, a tool to start/stop all on-screen multi-frame images simultaneously, auto Cine upon opening, paging through sets of multi-frame images and performance improvements. It also includes a special feature for transferring measurements from the image viewer directly into report forms. WebWorks is also being enhanced by an optional package to run MPRs. By providing MPRs to the Web browser, more advanced visualization tools are available to the referring physicians where they can be used for patient education.
“BRIT worked closely with our cardiology customers to enhance this product so they could more efficiently view their studies within a browser,” says Shelly Fisher, President of BRIT Systems. “With studies over 1GB in size, it is much faster to deliver the browser screens than to deliver all those DICOM images. Now, clinicians can quickly view their studies anywhere within their WAN.”
WebWorks provides the same features found in a dedicated client/server workstation, including:
- Window Level adjustment with single click auto-window level;
- Pan, zoom, rotate, etc.;
- Measurement tools including freehand ROI;
- Automatic linking by body position;
- Compare side by side to prior studies;
- Timeline with image icons at the top of the screen for easy access; and
- Multi-modality support.
WebWorks’s timeline can list studies and access them from multiple enterprises via Patient Discovery and the NHIN Gateway.
