DR Systems Announces Issuance of U.S. Patent for Systems and Methods for Viewing Medical Images

Patent Monitors the Portions of a Medical Image Displayed at Full Resolution

DR Systems, a leading independent provider of enterprise-wide medical imaging and information systems, announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued to the company a new patent, relating to a system and method for viewing medical images at full resolution.

US Patent No. 8,019,138 describes systems and methods for viewing medical images. For certain medical images, it is important and/or required that a user view all of a medical image at full resolution so that minute, but important, indicia in the medical image are not missed. A computing system monitors the portions of the medical image that are displayed on the displayed device, notates those portions that have been displayed at full resolution (or other user-defined display parameters), and provides the user with information indicating portions that have not been viewed at full resolution and/or provides information indicating for which images of a multiple image examination full pixel display has been accomplished. The process reduces the possibility of missing an abnormality in a medical image due to the viewer not viewing a portion of the image at full resolution or using other user-defined display parameters.

KLAS recognized DR Systems and its Unity RIS-CVIS-PACS-Reporting platform as the leading PACS vendor and product in its "2012 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services" report published in December 2012. The KLAS report highlighted several technology attributes of the Unity PACS, including intuitive design of the user interface, depth of functionality, and ease of use.

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.

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.
