Integrating with Medical Imaging: Adhering to DICOM standard

Ask any physician, and they will tell you that imaging is a key component of the patient health record and is often critical to diagnosis and treatment

With widespread use of computers in medicine, it is now possible to have "filmless" radiology department and "paperless" hospitals. To make this happen, radiology equipments using computers should be connected seamlessly and computers in a hospital need to be integrated into a network.

The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Standard describes the means of formatting and exchanging medical images and image related information to facilitate the connectivity of medical devices and systems. The DICOM Standard endorsed by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) is a result of joint efforts of users and manufacturers of medical imaging and healthcare information technology.



Integrating medical equipments of different vendors used to be a big issue. Even today with all the advancements that IT made, very large budgets are spent over interfaces and integration in very large project, not only in medicine. The ability of modern imaging equipment to seamlessly collaborate and integrate together in a multi-vendor environment is the most notable achievement of DICOM that led to a great advancement in medical imaging.

MED365’s Medical Imaging integration, integrates with all medical imaging devices that adhere with standard imaging protocol including medical imaging systems (AKA Imaging Modalities) Equipment like X-Rays, Ultrasounds, CT (Computed Tomography), and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) support DICOM and use it extensively. While installing new imaging equipment in the hospital and plugging it into the network, it can immediately query the medical imaging archive (PACS), retrieve images that were created by other systems and display them. Additionally, if the new system produces images, they can be reviewed on other vendor’s systems that are already members of the network. All this is done without any changes or modifications to any of the involved system software.

Liberation of your image data is possible with the DICOM standard.

Asset Management

Consider these situations commonly observed in hospitals:
1) What is common between infusion pumps and taxi cabs? There are hundreds in circulation, but you can never find one when you need one.
2) With large number of patients being handled everyday in hospitals, how do you keep a tab on your patients? As for example, if a patient is trying to access a restricted area, how can you find about it?
There is always a crowd of things and people going around in a hospital that needs to be tracked. There are doctors, nurses, patients, and visitors who need to be kept track of. There is equipment that needs to be prevented from getting stolen. One of the biggest challenges in asset-intensive industries is how to effectively manage all their different types of asset. These organizations must deal with  physical assets that require ongoing maintenance and repair. Managing human resources—the most valuable asset of all—comes with its own special set of challenges
Coming back to the answer to the a…
