PACSGEAR announced this week the company's second European installation at the Departmental Hospital Winterthur in Switzerland, which has selected the company's PacsSCAN FILM software for digitizing films.
The Winterthur Hospital is a 500-bed full service facility performing 70,000 radiology procedures annually. Along with The University Hospital Zürich and the City Hospital Triemli, Winterthur Hospital is part of the TriPACS Zürich project, a collaboration to enhance the exchange of clinical information among the three hospitals.
"The PacsSCAN FILM user-interface with DICOM worklist capability is very intuitive, giving us the ability to digitize films and scan paper documents with the same software," said Dr. Jürgen Link of the Departmental Hospital Winterthur in a release. He continued, "We also have the capability to import jpeg image files from legacy devices such as our mobile C-Arm units. Additionally, PacsSCAN FILM displays the status of image transfers and requires no local data maintenance."
Earlier this year the County Durham and Darlington Acute Hospitals NHS Trust in the U.K. also chose PACSGEAR, making the first European installation.
