BRIT Offers New DICOM Router for Teleradiology or PACS

BRIT Systems showcased at the PACS 2007 conference the Roentgen Router, a DICOM routing module designed for use with any DICOM-compliant PACS or as the foundation for a facility’s teleradiology capabilities at the upcoming.
The Roentgen Router provides auto-routing and prefetching of DICOM studies based on a user defined study criteria, with the tools to schedule routes eliminating human intervention and automating teleradiology environments. System managers build routes based on information within the DICOM header of radiographic images, including body region, modality type and referring physician. Routes are scheduled based on time of day and day of the week. They can also be queued or held and sent at a later time. Prefetching of comparison studies from reportedly any DICOM server or archive is enabled as a maximum number of prefetches can be established and limited by age of the study, modality or body region. Each route is monitored to facilitate system administration; failure alerts with detailed information can be customized for each site and system manager. Tools within Roentgen Router support the retrying of failed images based upon a pre-determined time frame, which can also be customized per site.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
