Candelis Launches ImageGrid PACS-RT Appliance

November 2, 2009 – Candelis Inc. announced the introduction and general availability of its ImageGrid PACS-RT appliance, which provides radiation therapy and oncology centers with a cost effective DICOM-RT image management and archiving solution. A fully-integrated 2D/3D RT Viewer enables oncologists to review, approve and sign-off on treatment plans from any workstation.
 
The U.S. FDA 510(k) cleared ImageGrid RT Viewer provides a number of unique capabilities designed to streamline and simplify workflow for efficient treatment planning, review and approval, among them: 
User-specific, automatically populated case worklists, worklist-based prefetching of relevant priors, roaming user preferences ensuring a consistent user experience irrespective of physical workstation  location,
Dose rendering - including dose clouds, dose contours, dose histograms and beam(s) rendering and integrated case reports.

The ImageGrid RT Viewer also includes a host of capabilities present in Candelis’ Advanced Radiology Viewer. With the ImageGrid PACS-RT Appliance, therapists, dosimetrists, physicists and oncologists have immediate access to data and images, resulting in optimized clinical performance and better patient care.  Oncologists can seamlessly move between image and case review, using both portal images and 3D datasets.  The ImageGrid PACS-RT Appliance complies with the DICOM-RT standard and supports all DICOM-RT objects.
 
The ImageGrid PACS-RT appliance builds on the success of the ImageGridTM PACS Appliance, which has emerged as one of the most robust and technically-advanced PACS systems available.  In less than three years, the ImageGrid PACS Appliance has been adopted by over 750 hospitals and imaging facilities, including over 50 leading cancer centers, such as Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), St. Jude’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Huntsman Cancer Center at the University of Utah.
 
The ImageGrid PACS-RT Appliance is on display at the 51st Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) the week of November 1st and at the 94th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago the week of November 28, 2009.
