There's a lot of talk about PACS, digital imaging and DICOM. It's no longer a debate about whether you should move away from film or if the proper digital imaging technology exists, but rather when and how. Until recently PACS have been a costly investment which did not extend the significant cost savings that could be seen in other industries such as radiology. In the past, It would have taken years before a return on your investment.
Now, more and more podiatry centers are seeing the advantages of digital imaging at 1/3 of the cost. Taking your Orthopedic center digital provides fine diagnostic quality images and do so faster, using fewer resources than traditional x-ray film.
Our solutions help to store, distribute, diagnose and share these images with owners and referring doctors in an organized and cost-effective manner. Our products are easy to install system and provided complete training without major disruption to your practice.
Are solutions are based on the international standard of DICOM. What this means is that if you select solutions that use this standard, you will not be locked into one vendor's solution as your practice grows or changes. This helps you to remain in control.
Dicom Solutions is the answer for a cost-effective, easily maintained PACS for Orthopedic Centers. We takes all the key elements of our large medical PACS solutions and packages them in a rational size for orthopedic practices.
