ACC3: Candelis ImageGrid Drives Down Cost of PACS

The ImageGrid by Candelis Inc. is a line of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) industry-standard PACS appliances optimized for digital-image access and routing. It provides simplified image management and highly reliable storage and archive capabilities in a fully-integrated storage server platform.

The new ImageGrid View enables imaging facilities to securely share DICOM medical data and images with their network of referring physicians and other remote-location users. In order to comply with HIPAA requirements, a system administrator handles user management and authorization level controls on the ImageGrid. The Web-based viewer provides non-diagnostic viewing capabilities and includes features such as viewing multiple studies side by side as well as image processing attributes. Image processing capabilities provide users complete image control for enhanced viewing while annotation functions allow viewers to add, edit and attach multiple annotations to images. Additional features include measurement tools that calculate distance, area and angle, and export functions that translate DICOM format to common image formats such as JPEG for easy distribution and sharing.

With ImageGrid, managing and archiving studies from data-intensive modalities such as 64-slice CT and MRI has become easier and less costly, allowing imaging centers to focus on patient care and profitable growth.

The ImageGrid PACS appliance also offers optional HL7 industry-standard support to empower users to exchange information with other HL7-compliant applications such as HIS and RIS. This capability allows users to import and exchange patient demographics, visits, orders and transcribed data onto the ImageGrid. Users are also provided with the required inputs for Modality Worklist (MWL), Modality Performed Procedure Step (MPPS), departmental scheduling services (DSS) and study validation.
