iCAD has released its TotalLook version 8.0. This latest version of the company’s film digitizer provides women's healthcare centers with important workflow and connectivity-related benefits that help with the transition from film to digital mammography and aid clinical productivity. TotalLook provides customers with a comprehensive system for film-to-digital conversion that enables comparative image review on a single digital review workstation. The system provides DICOM query and search capabilities that tighten integration with PACS and HIS/RIS, eliminating redundant patient data entry, minimizing errors and improving workflow. Additionally, the image compression option uses Intelligent Image Sampling and anti-aliasing algorithms to reduce file size 75 percent. Image compression also minimizes storage/archiving requirements and enables images to be shared more easily. A typical facility could save nearly 5TB of storage space annually, the company said.
