With INDECís DICOM Courier software, you can integrate your INDEC workstations into your DICOM PACS Network to Query and Retrieve existing files on your DICOM Server or Store new images onto your DICOM Server. Both new and existing echoPlaque 4.0 systems can interface a DICOM PACS Network using the DICOM Courier software.
Using DICOM Courier's Query function, a DICOM PACS Server can be searched for individual DICOM images. DICOM Courier allows the user to query and search using a variety of fields: Patient ID, Patient Name, Study Date, Image Modality, and more. DICOM images can then be retrieved from the DICOM PACS Server to the echoPlaque 4.0 system where they can be reviewed and analyzed using INDEC Medical software. After review and analysis, newly saved DICOM images can be stored back on your DICOM PACS Server. This means that any DICOM file that is saved by an INDEC echoPlaque 4.0 system can be archived on a DICOM PACS Server - and a key feature of the echoPlaque 4.0 software is that no measurements are lost when the image is stored to or retrieved from a DICOM PACS Server. All contour and measurement data are stored in special tags within the DICOM image. If a DICOM image is saved in echoPlaque and then stored on a DICOM PACS Server, the measurements will still be intact if the image is retrieved a week, a month, or a year later.
