Digitizing/DICOMizing of radiological devices
By keeping the radiological
devices unchanged (except for the developer, replaced by the
appropriate electronics of the CR) it is yet possible to avoid future
purchases of film and to produce digital images in DICOM providing the
advantages of the digital medium and specially of that graphic format
being the ability to be transmitted, postprocessed and stored:
1. as an example of secure transmission in the hospital, or between the hospital and a polyclinic or home, see our web page Transmission of digital images.
2. as examples of postprocessing,
provided either by the CR itself or by our transmission system CHILI,
see our web page Structuring tools.
3. as an example of storage,
even for the long term, with a constant possibility of on-line access
to the stored documents, see our web page: Hardware.
Our system of transmission,
archivation and viewing Chili is compatible with the devices of the
worldwide most famous producers of CR/phosphorus plates/Speicherfolien.
The global harmonious solutions
that Pansys proposes for a full digitizing of the hospital imaging can
integrate the CR devices and so be compatible with any specific
backed by its suppliers and partners, is experienced in the general and
irreversible evolution to filmless hospitals.
The economic model that Pansys
has developed suggests that the investment charges of the digitizing
are smaller than the costs reductions procured by that digitizing
(savings on films, chemical products, maintenance, archivation,
transport, improvement of the workflow). On request we can set up an
individual economic estimation based on precise objective parameters
(see: Consulting in hospital IT).
With some financial partners
Pansys has prepared some systems of leasing or of utilization contract,
able to solve any hospital budget problem regarding the digitizing and
to confirm that the effective monthly charges linked to some financial
configurations we prepared, are usually smaller than the cost
reductions listed above.
