OR Technology Release: New Version of dicomPACS®DX-R X-ray Acquisition Software Guarantees a More Efficient Workflow

2/23/2012 8:44:51 AM

February 23, 2012 -- OR Technology will present a new version of its versatile acquisition software for X-ray images at this year’s ECR (European Congress of Radiology) in Vienna. dicomPACS®DX-R version 2.2 provides an accelerated image processing. The image data are now evaluated simultaneously on all the cores of the processor available.

In addition, dicomPACS®DX-R has implemented the MPPS (Modality Performed Procedure Step) DICOM service class. This service optimises the workflow by informing the worklist server (HIS/RIS) of the start and the completion of an examination. The acquisition software sends information about starting, executing and closing of examinations to the set server. On the basis of these messages, the server can determine the state of the processing.

The new software version now also supports the DICOM service class Storage Commitment. By means of Storage Commitment, DICOM units can obtain confirmation that the data transmitted was safely stored in the archive. Once information has been received that the images were successfully stored, the image data of the DICOM unit can be deleted from the database of the particular modality.

“Numerous new components have been integrated into the current version of our X-ray acquisition software ”, says Bernd Oehm, managing director of the enterprise. “A number of detectors and CR systems but also X-ray generators are supported by dicomPACS®DX-R. The software controls X-ray generators and motorised X-ray systems of different manufacturers, enabling an ideal work process”, underlines Bernd Oehm.

Digital X-ray and image management solutions by the system provider are currently being used in more than 50 countries. Thanks to the move to new company premises last year, OR Technology now profits from best conditions to continue its strategy of growth.

OR Technology can be found at booth 311 in Expo C on the ECR grounds in Vienna.
