ITAC Systems Inc., of Garland, Texas unveiled new versions of its Mouse-Trak Industrial trackballs.
The devices are designed for use on Siemens Medical Systems' PACS (picture archiving and communications systems) terminals using Sun or Wintel platforms.
According to ITAC Systems, Siemens delivers its PACS products on several platforms including Sun Sparc, Sun Blade and Wintel systems. To support these varied installations, ITAC Systems has created two products supporting the Siemens PACS Cine function. The Bpasci model is compatible with the Sun Sparc's proprietary mouse interface, while the Busbid-Paci model supports the USB mouse interface of Sun Blade and PC platforms, says the company.
Developed to simplify the task of reviewing sequenced patient images, the trackballs require no special software drivers for installation.
