Medavis released a free tool to import medical image data into PACS Archives
The international standard DICOM for medical image data has been implemented for several years, but in reality the data exchange between hospitals or private institutes often fails due to technical problems. Even though nowadays nearly all software solutions offer the possibility to write individual patient image data onto data carriers like CD or DVD, this in many cases fails due to the data not being accepted by the receiver´s system. This is why important information for treatment or specific diagnostic is often not accessable.
In order to create a smooth exchange of information in the future, medavis GmbH has developed a software that can be used intuitively and free of charge for non-commercial use.
With the help of medavis DICOM Importer, DICOM media, as well as many other formats, can be imported and saved into a PACS archive. Apart from the possibility of importing the entire data of a data carrier by the push of a single button you can also choose between importing an image series or just single images with the built in preview function. For improved report assessment the users have, within the image preview function, functions like Pan, Zoom, Window-Center, at their disposal.
The free version can be used for non-commercial use without time limitation and may be freely copied. The current version can be found in the download area of www.dicomimporter.com
The DICOM Conformance Statement can be downloaded in the download area of the medavis GmbH under www.medavis.com
