March 4, 2008 – VIDAR showcased its recently released ClinicalExpress 4.0 film acquisition software that integrates prior studies for assisting in transition to FFDM and is developed specifically for use with the company’s DiagnosticPRO Advantage and CAD PRO Advantage.
The software is DICOM 3.0-compliant and allows users to connect with outlying clinics, departments, film libraries or reading or treatment facilities. After film-based prior studies are digitized, DICOM image files can be sent to PACS, exported to a CD, or used to print hard copy duplicates reportedly without the need for film-processing chemicals.
The Modality Work List option creates a scanning work list and allows for the search of existing databases, aiming to eliminate the need for retyping patient and study level information. The PDI option allows scanning paper evidence documents (via standard paper scanners) and importing DICOM Media from CDs. This feature includes the ability to manually write DICOM CDs and transfer patient examination data in DICOM to other facilities not connected to your PACS.
