December 28, 2012 — At the 98th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, 3Disc introduced its next-generation QuantorMed+ and QuantorVet+ imaging software. Quantor+ provides facilities using 3Disc’s family of FireCR+ medical and veterinary readers with optimized image acquisition, processing and management capabilities.
With QuantorMed+ and QuantorVet+ imaging software, image acquisition is supported by a comprehensive list of exams and anatomies. To optimize images, technicians can crop, etch, enhance, increase brightness and contrast, and perform other adjustments. The software includes an updated color scheme, with a dark background that offers maximum contrast when viewing images and is easier on the eyes of technicians, radiologists and veterinarians. It also features improved organization of controls and grouping of functionality for work, exam and study list buttons for fast, intuitive operation. A visible navigation bar is available at all times to guide users through workflow.
“With our next-generation software and unique touch-screen interface, image acquisition, processing and management have never been easier,” said 3Disc Europe CEO Thomas Weldingh. “Facilities can use the DICOM-compliant interface to download patient and exam information from a work list, which can be automatically matched, eliminating the need for data entry, or manually input patient and exam information. For facilities without a HIS [hospital information system], RIS [radiology information system] or PACS [picture archiving and communication system], a local database enables direct management of patients and studies — DICOM and non-DICOM images can be viewed on the same workstation they were acquired on.”
Weldingh said the embedded viewing tool allows for immediate diagnosis and contains basic tools such as distance- and angle-measurements, drawings and other features. QuantorMed+ and QuantorVet+ also are available in a variety of languages. Users can complete their imaging software solution with an optional advanced viewer module, the QuantorView, allowing them to view images via a network or the Internet, and send them in DICOM format directly from the imaging software into QuantorView.
At RSNA 2012 3Disc also launched a line of FireCR+M readers for medical and veterinary use that scan a full range of the most used cassette sizes, along with the FireCR dental reader.
“3Disc is at the forefront in providing a wide variety of CR [computed radiography] readers and software options so that customers can tailor solutions that meet their exact needs,” said 3Disc Americas CEO Sigrid Smitt-Jeppesen said. “Whether a busy radiology department or practice needing fast imaging speed; a large but space-challenged clinic; a podiatry, orthopedic, veterinary or dental practice; or a smaller radiology department with a tight budget but plans to grow — 3Disc Imaging provides solutions to meet our customers’ current needs, along with flexibility that helps them grow.”
QuantorMed+ and QuantorVet+ imaging software, along with the FireCR+M medical and veterinary readers, will be available worldwide in the first quarter of 2013.
