MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vital Images, Inc. (Vital), a Minneapolis-based enterprise medical imaging and informatics company, is pleased to announce that it will launch Vitrea Data Stream and the latest release of Vitrea Enterprise Viewer at RSNA 2016. Data Stream can accelerate image presentation and provide a single access point for EMR image enablement across multiple PACS systems.
A powerful software appliance that can convert DICOM to DICOMweb, Data Stream allows DICOMweb-enabled viewers to load and display images much more quickly and easily than with traditional viewing solutions. It enables fast access to the first image and makes additional images available as the study loads. With Data Stream’s real-time access capability, healthcare providers no longer need to wait for the entire imaging study to transfer before viewing images, while avoiding costly and time-consuming data migration projects.
“Physicians don’t want to use multiple viewers that require separate access or wait for all the images to be migrated to a large central archive. They want a single, fast and high-quality viewing solution, launched from their EMR that presents images regardless of where they are stored,” says Tim Dawson, vice president of Technology at Vital Images. “Data Stream provides federated access to current and legacy image archives by enabling DICOMweb access to traditional DICOM sources. Users can immediately access images across the enterprise through Data Stream and a DICOMweb-enabled viewer, such as Vitrea Enterprise Viewer. This frees healthcare IT to develop their image management strategy independently and without disrupting or delaying user access.”
With the introduction of Vitrea Data Stream, Vital continues its leadership in setting industry standards with further development of its enterprise-wide imaging and DICOMweb-enabled solutions. Vital was a leader in the development of technology that helped drive the creation of DICOMweb and now offers this next-generation capability in its enterprise imaging solutions, providing clinicians further optimization of the EMR with flexible, real-time streaming of images.
