August 13, 2009 - Carestream Health Inc. launched the CARESTREAM PACS, MX-Clinic View, a solution for small practices to review, store and output medical images that provides users with affordable and efficient digital image management.
The new low-volume system, which Carestream featured at AHRA, provides users with a plug-and-play solution for one to five concurrent users and is designed for up to 15,000 imaging exams a year. The PACS MX-Clinic View is available as a standalone system or as a bundled solution that includes a DIRECTVIEW Classic CR or Elite CR System, or a Point-of-Care CR System. Bundling the MX-Clinic View with a CR system provides a comprehensive solution for users that desire digital imaging capabilities for general radiology exams. In addition to CR, this solution can support a variety of modalities including DR, ultrasound, MR and CT.
The MX-Clinic View is easy to use and offers a rich set of features including: image annotations and enhancements; orthopedic measurements; long-length imaging; and support for multiple-monitor workstations and multiple image layout types. Its output and storage options include several months of on-line storage, output to CD or DVD and up to four terabytes of RAID storage. It also accommodates the import, storage and display of non-DICOM data so physicians can integrate imaging exams with other types of patient records.
Target markets are expected to include podiatry, chiropractic, urgent care, general radiology and orthopedics.
The new PACS will be marketed to physicians’ offices and clinics by authorized dealers. It is currently available for order from U.S. dealers and will be available in other regions of the world later this year.
