DIGITAL IMAGING

DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY


Colenta DX-Easy Imaging DR Retrofit Kit

The Colenta DX-Easy Imaging DR Retrofit Kit makes the use of CR Cassettes/Imaging Plates or the use of analogue x-ray films, the use of film cassettes and intensifying screens, the use of a darkroom, a processor and processing chemistry obsolete.

The digital information for the various images, necessary for an x-ray examination, is obtained by means of the Colenta Wireless Flat Panel Detector, which is replacing the CR Cassettes/Imaging Plates or the conventional method of using cassettes/films.

The Colenta Wireless Flat Panel Detector with AED (Automatic Exposure Detection) – facility, does not need any interlink to the x-ray generator.

The digital information, produced by the DR Detector is transferred to the Capture Console, where by means of the DX-Easy Imaging Acquisition Software the x-ray image is obtained and can be evaluated on screen – within approximately 3 seconds after the x-ray exposure.

The DX-Easy Imaging Processing Software allows the radiologist to enhance and examine the image exactly as required to make a precise diagnosis. The image can be exported to different media or a patient CD made as required.

MAMMOGRAPHY IMAGE READING:
The Reader HIGHCAP XMr is equipped with a mammography image reading function. With high definition reading and the fastest processing in the tabletop class, this model brings about a seamless workflow to your diagnosis.

The digital information, stored on the CR Imaging Plate is scanned by the CR-Readerand is sent to the Capture Console, where by means of the DX-Easy Imaging Acquisition Software the x-ray image is obtained and can be evaluated on screen.

The DX-Easy Imaging Processing Software allows the radiologist to enhance and examine the image exactly as required to make a precise diagnosis. The image can be exported to different media or a patient CD made as required.

Only the diagnosis related images are printed by means of the COLENTA DICOM Printer onto Dry Imaging Film for keeping in the patient file.
A CD-writer in the PC of the Capture Console allows images to be written and to create a Patient-CD, to be kept with the patient file.

VIDAR MEDICAL FILM DIGITIZER


Diagnostic PRO Advantage

VIDAR’s Diagnostic PRO Advantage film digitizer has achiver the highest reliability, image quality, consistency, and best overall productivity of any digitizer on the market. In addition to typical PACS applications, the Diagnostic PRO Advantage offers flexibility – it can be used in facilities that now or in the future will support digitization of mammography priors. If you have a room supporting PACS and low-volume mammography applications, the 44-micron spot size OD Diagnostic PRO Advantage will be key in the digital transition.

Dosimetry PRO Advantage

VIDAR’s DosimetryPRO® Advantage (Red) offers the radiation therapy market a specifically developed digitizer that meets the specific needs for those using popular standard film such as Carestream’s Kodak EDR2 and film chemistry, as well as for those who use International Specialty Products’ GAFCHROMIC EBT Film.

The DosimetryPRO Advantage for Film Dosimetry, QA and IMRT allows radiation physicists and oncologists to measure the consistency and precision of treatment beams they need for cancer therapy. The fast growing use of radiochromic film in Film Dosimetry, QA and IMRT has increased the need for an accurate medical-grade device that utilizes red-spectrum light. With the industry moving to eliminate film chemistry from modern cancer centers, VIDAR’s state-of-the-art DosimetryPRO Advantage (Red) was designed to meet the exacting needs for using radiochromic film in beam analysis and related applications.

CAD PRO Advantage

The CAD PRO® Advantage film digitizer is specifically designed for mammography CAD. CAD systems incorporate advanced pattern recognition and image analysis, requiring a film digitizer that meets the highest standards of image quality and reliability. These advanced systems enable radiologists to improve their ability to detect early stage cancers in an efficient manner. The CAD PROAdvantage is an ideal fit for mammography facilities transitioning to digital technology.

In order to read a new mammography study, Radiologists and mammographers may require up to two years of prior studies. The ongoing transition to digital technology in mammography has forced radiologists to view both film-based priors and new digital images for the same returning patient read, until now.

Clinical Express DICOM Software

Integrating prior studies and outside facilities…

If you need to access prior studies, access studies from outside facilities, connect a remote site, or make digital copies of films for the patient to take to another facility, VIDAR’s ClinicalExpress for general radiography and mammography is the solution for you.

ClinicalExpress is designed for ease of operation and was developed specifically for use with the world’s leading line of film digitizers — VIDAR’s DiagnosticPRO Advantage, CAD PROAdvantage,and SIERRA Advantage. This software complies with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) 3.0 standard to digitize relevant prior films and send the images to DICOM PACS or workstations; and allows you to easily connect outlying clinics, departments, film libraries, or your reading or treatment facilities. Alternatively, a user-friendly film digitizing station can be used to digitize film-based prior studies, including mammography. The DICOM image files can then be sent to PACS, exported to CD, or used to print hard copy duplicates without the need for film-processing chemicals.
