DICOM Router Technology Saves Time

DICOM Router Technology Saves Lives

If we were to tell you that time is of the utmost importance in treating trauma patients – that the first twenty minutes of care can be the difference between life and death in some cases – we wouldn’t be telling you anything you don’t already know.

However, what if we told you that a specialist receiving a trauma patient transfer, airlifted in because of the severity of his or her condition, no longer had to spend those first twenty minutes reviewing medical records and images from a CD? What if the doctor already had those images the moment the patient boarded the helicopter? What if those images were already in the PACS that the surgeon uses regularly and the radiologists and other specialists had simultaneous access to those images for a consult or second opinion?  

Then the operative decisions would largely be made prior to the patient arriving in the trauma room, and you could get on with the business of saving lives.

DICOM eXtender

mPlexus® DICOM eXtender is a highly optimized intelligent medical image routing software application that enables facilities to share images quickly and securely. Based on the open standard known as DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine), DICOM eXtender will communicate with any other DICOM device, including DICOM routers. It is designed to be fully HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant. The inclusion of the DICOM SSL encryption standard allows users to securely send images without a VPN and with the added benefit of using far less network bandwidth. Anecdotal evidence gathered in feedback from customers suggests that DICOM eXtender is among the leaders, if not the solitary leader, in speed and reliability among DICOM image transfer devices and DICOM routers on the market.

mPlexus® DICOM eXtender is currently sold in version in either of two feature sets: Gateway and Server.  The newest version, 1.5 is the first version compatible with 64 bit Windows Operating Systems and will be available in June 2012.  Version 2.0 has many new and exciting features and is currently in development.
