Simplifies cross-enterprise image access, sharing and storage

 

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – December 8, 2015 – IDS announced today the release of AbbaDox HTML5 DICOM Image Viewer and the DICOM Virtual Appliance designed to fully support inter-PACS communications with logic-driven routing and vastly improved image load and transmission speed, replacing its previous DICOM image viewing module.

“We redesigned and redeveloped our image sharing application and services with an entirely new infrastructure for the dual purposes of ease and accessibility,” said IDS CEO Yaniv Dagan. “We continuously seek ways to break barriers posed by closed information systems. We architected this solution to simplify diagnostic image sharing across the enterprise and other health systems, making it easier for the patient, healthcare provider, or family members to access diagnostic images regardless of location, browser or device.”

Among the prominent features are advances in image transfer and viewing. Images load instantly, demonstrating faster load and transmission times. The zero-footprint AbbaDox Image Viewer requires no client installation and is compatible with all modern web browsers that are HTML5-compliant including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, MacOS Safari, and Mozilla Firefox. Users can also access the Image Viewer through native apps on the iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile devices.

Developed using the newest version of the hypertext markup language, HTML5, the AbbaDox Image Viewer is a true end-user, cross-platform solution which replaces its predecessor application built on the Microsoft® Silverlight™ development platform. The increased speed, ease of deployment and rich user interface along with the dynamic and responsive interaction particularly with mobile devices were all factors in adopting the HTML5 standards and methodologies for the product redesign.

The release also includes major improvements to the DICOM Virtual Appliance. The new architecture takes the image cache to the next level with increased processing, routing and archiving capabilities. Addressing the need for imaging centers to have access to a highly-durable, highly-available repository service, the appliance acts as a full PACS providing online storage with various storage topologies, such as local RAID arrays, external hard drives or nearline storage using network or cloud storage services. It also supports offline devices such as tape backup.

The new backend appliance is also capable of transcoding incoming DICOM images on the fly offering more efficient storage with the JPEG 2000 lossless file format. In addition to JPEG, users can download images to the local workstation as a DICOM image or a study with the full series of images.

Improvements in routing include bi-directional image transfer allowing images to be shared across locations, with groups or individual users. Studies can also be sent to a specific PACS. The new design optimizes workflows through querying multiple, remote PACS while providing routing rules based on logic designed to direct the studies in an efficient and intelligent manner. Images on a CD, for example, can be uploaded using the CD Uploader and then routed to an archive or the main PACS with additional routing instructions based on modality or other criteria.

Drawing on the best of both platforms, the new viewer maintains the rich user interface and popular features, such as window and level controls, triangulation, zoom, magnify, measurements, and annotations.  Because image rendering has moved from the server to the web client, image processing operations such as window leveling are remarkably faster and more responsive.

The AbbaDox Image Viewer is one of a number of seamlessly integrated cloud applications in the AbbaDox Rad software suite designed specifically for enhancing workflows and productivity in imaging centers, distributed radiology and teleradiology operations.
