October 23, 2014 — Telemis has launched a new version of its picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) software at the Journées Françaises de Radiologie (JFR) technical exhibition and congress in Paris. Telemis-Medical PACS version 4.6 includes advanced functions for 360° medical imaging and ultrasound reporting and offers a new architecture to reduce image processing overheads. Version 4.6 also supports migration to true multimedia archiving and communication system (MACS) functionality by providing a route to handling non-DICOM images, including pictures from smartphones and tablets.
Telemis-Medical PACS version 4.6 delivers enhanced 360° capabilities through new tools for multi-planar processing alongside revolutionary new capabilities for reporting ultrasound data. The latter dramatically improve the readability of results by clearly positioning screenshot markers. Furthermore, the latest Telemis-Medical PACS also offers two new platform options: TM-ZFP (Telemis Medical Zero Footprint) that improves the flexibility for viewing images within hospitals and other medical facilities; and TM-Capture, which supports the capture and sharing of images using mobile devices.
TM-ZFP does not require installation of software on computers, tablets or other technology used by medical staff and reduces the overhead of image post-processing on external systems. When used with suitable hardware TM-ZFP allows radiologists and other medical professionals to make more diagnoses and observations from a single console. Work can be optimized for any screen, including those used in boardrooms.
Telemis Medical PACS version 4.6 also supports true MACS functionality by providing options for handling non-DICOM data through TM-Dicomizer and the new Telemis TM-Capture product. TM-Dicomizer provides solutions for integrating images from devices such as endoscopes into a PACS system, while TM-Capture enables clinicians to photograph and share images that are tagged to specific patients using smartphones or tablets. With TM-Capture, for instance, a doctor, nurse, clinician or other medical professional can identify the patient, record images and videos and send them directly to the host PACS system. This simplifies the observation and recording of evolving symptoms and provides for optimized internal and external sharing of information.
