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.
