Medical Imaging Management System
TSG DICOM TALKS (MEDICAL
IMAGE MANAGEMENT) is a Picture Archiving
and Communication System for computerized
on-line receiving, storing, archiving
and visualizing of medical images in
digital form for use in a department
of a hospital. It communicates with
other departments in a local area network
or outside the hospital using wide area
network technology. Adoption of DICOM
standard for creating, storing and communicating
digital images has accelerated the development
of new solutions in the practice of
medicine. Digital images provide more
information to the doctors compared
to images on films.
Doctors can use the data for better
diagnosis and treatment of patients.
All images can be accessed and viewed
on computer display terminals through
PACS implementation included in this
system. The system enables users to
capture, process, and transmit or receive
radiological data. Text data, such as
studies and patient data, as well as
high-resolution images can be processed
and transmitted. This system is intended
for improving the productivity of the
department through better access to
medical images for quality of patient
care. The system is designed to be modular.
It may be configured for a small, medium
or large department for information
exchange with any DICOM compliant source.
The system can also be configured for
a small clinic as well as individual
doctor having access to DICOM images
in a network or through media exchange.
