Web-Based Voyager PACS Stresses Convenience

Voyager PACS, which will be featured at SIIM 2008, is a Web-enabled, server-based PACS that reportedly provides medical images of any patient to any doctor, anytime, anywhere.

Voyager PACS provides image archiving, soft copy reporting, management and distribution functionality. The system receives images from modalities or from other sources (i.e. teleradiology) via DICOM and stores these on the PACS server or attached storage device. The studies can then be viewed, reported and manipulated by the Voyager Diagnostic workstations connected to the PACS server via LAN, WAN or Internet connection. Voyager Integrator reportedly provides seamless interfacing to the Radiology Information System (RIS) via HL7, allowing information to be shared and exchanged between the Voyager PACS and the RIS.

Also featured will be the Voyager Single Radiologist PACS consisting of a diagnostic workstation and a Web server usually combined on the same hardware. The workstation can be configured to store studies either on its local disk or on external RAID for extended image storage capacity. The Voyager workstation can receive studies from local modalities or remote teleradiology sites. It can also support a film digitizer and document scanner if required.

A radiologist typically reports on the system during the day. While the radiologist is reporting up to two concurrent authorized users are able to access images via the Internet. Access can be for viewing within a clinic (e.g. radiographers or on-site referrers), for external referring doctors, or can be used by a radiologist for after-hours remote reporting. This solution is ideal for a small practice or for a start-up practice where future growth is expected, said the company. The single radiologist PACS can be upgraded to a full PACS and web solution when additional radiologist workstations are required or when Web access is required for more than the initial two concurrent users.

The Voyager Telerad system has been designed to accept images from DICOM modalities or film digitizers. It can also provide frame-grab DICOM bridge functions to non-DICOM modalities (an option). Voyager Telerad allows film scanning and document scanning on the same station thus providing simplified workflow, cost savings and efficiencies. Voyager Telerad allows the user to view and manipulate acquired images. These images can be stored locally and/or sent to another location for reporting by a radiologist or review by clinical users. Images can be sent via dial-up, LAN, WAN or Internet, with options for compression to decrease transmission time and reduce bandwidth usage.
