Medical Imaging Solution to Connect, Compare, and Collaborate

We delivered a solution based on a medical imaging technology called Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). Each imaging machine transmits DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) objects to a PACS repository. A central server parses and stores DICOM objects received from various machines. The web and iPad applications access the data on the server using web services.

Business Benefits

  • Instant access by replacing desktop systems with mobile devices
  • Physicians can now record and review data on the move
  • Improved collaboration among departments
  • Reduced overhead with better data management

Key Features

  • Search and filter using patient ID, doctor ID, machine, or clinic name.
  • Displays diagnosis, recommendations, images, and frames.
  • Image viewer displays 2-4 frames simultaneously allowing comparative study of series.
  • Infinite loop for playing images, with loop speed setting for better control.
  • Doctors can zoom, pan, measure, modify, and comment on images.
  • Snapshots of measurements can be emailed along with doctors’ comments.
  • Manual as well as automatic timed logout.
  • Raw image processing and lossless jpeg compression.
  • Brightness and contrast filters based on pixel window dimensions in DICOM protocol.
  • Area calculation based on extrapolation of pixel density information in DICOM protocol.

Technologies

  • Login authentication with server or backend LDAP/RADIUS
  • PACS architecture
  • DICOM image storage protocol
  • HL7 data transfer protocol
  • iOS
  • Django
