VIDAR releases new version of DICOM film acquisition software
VIDAR Systems has released its Clinical-Express 4.1, the CE-MDD edition of its DICOM film acquisition software.

The Herndon, Va.-based company said its new version is available in English, German, Spanish and Italian.

VIDAR said the Clinical-Express 4.1 was developed for use with its line of film digitizers—the CAD PRO Advantage, DiagnosticPRO Advantage and SIERRA plus.

By complying with the DICOM 3.0 standard to digitize prior films, the software sends the images to the PACS archive, mammography reading workstation or other DICOM-compliant workstation where radiologists can see prior images, along with the new digital study, without moving between two different reading technologies—a soft read workstation and a film view box, according to the company.
