Candelis Offers Browser-Based Universal Visualization Tool, Archive Solution

January 3, 2013 — Candelis recently announced two updates in its Astra cloud services offerings.

First, it has extended the capabilities of its browser-only thin client, Astra Lite, to provide for visualization of diagnostic-caliber images. Imaging facilities can now publish complete studies, reports and key images securely and automatically without allowing access to an internal network or use of VPNs. Referring physicians and specialists can easily access full-resolutions studies, reports and key images anytime and from anywhere.

Second, through Astra the company now provides deep archive support at a rate of only $499 per terabyte. Astra manages all backup and archive activities automatically and seamlessly.

Astra archiving services can serve as a means by which imaging facilities extend the useful lifespan of their existing PACS (picture archiving and communication system) solutions without incurring significant expenditures. Facilities can push older studies from their existing PACS to Candelis, which will automatically back up and/or archive studies to Astra. If those studies are required in the future, they can be automatically retrieved and supplied with no user intervention.

"Our announcement demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the delivery of powerful capabilities through Astra that address imaging facility pain points and which enable them to enhance the services they provide to their own customers," said Steven Higgins, Candelis CTO and VP engineering.
