November 15, 2010 — The Mosaiq Oncology picture archiving and communications system (PACS) has evolved to a new level with Mosaiq Data Director, an image and data management solution for oncology professionals that enables them to direct the interchange of images and information and address the requirements of the modern oncology workflow.
Fully integrated with the Mosaiq oncology information system (OIS), Mosaiq Data Director transforms the patient chart into the centralized control point to manage, view, move and archive patient images and data. Users can harness the new web-based viewer to explore data and archived images or objects online using powerful 3-D functionality.
Mosaiq Data Director was developed to handle all DICOM and non-DICOM images and data, particularly DICOM RT objects. From the Mosaiq OIS, Mosaiq Data Director gives users full storage and retrieval capabilities for the complete range of DICOM RT objects, including dose volume histograms, beam orientations, 3-D rotations, treatment plans, contoured structures and dose data. Tight integration with the patient chart also eliminates the need to access stand-alone applications and separate log-ins or patient searches.
In addition, Mosaiq Data Director allows all data, images and treatment planning files to be stored in their native formats and in full fidelity as part of the oncology workflow. This includes storage for data in many non-DICOM file formats, such as .avi, .bmp, .jpg, MP3, MPEG, .pdf, .txt, .doc, .ppt and .zip.
The new web-based DICOM RT 3-D viewer enables centers to avoid installing a viewer application in discrete stations. Any workstation with Internet access can interface with the Mosaiq Data Director viewer. Physicians can manipulate all applicable data sets required for a patient’s treatment.
Mosaiq Data Director also can serve as the central repository and director of the department’s data and enables users to locate and move images and data from other PACS, with its Query Spanning and Move Forwarding features.
