Available technologies in remote diagnostics
By implementing teleradiology systems, hospitals and imaging centers increase their independence, flexibility as well as savings in time and resources. Additionally, they can outsource possibilities for sub-specializations while keeping high standards and eliminating bottle-necks. Radiologists do not have to be present at the same location as the patients and even the largest images can be transferred in a matter of minutes.
In order to help you find the appropriate teleradiology solution, we prepared a helpful brochure which will guide you through the “jungle” of available technologies for remote diagnostics.
Cloud-based PACS solutions provide secure image access anytime and anywhere, without the hassle of IT maintenance costs and investment. Data is available 24/7 including offsite backup.
Cloud solutions are ideal for small to mid-sized healthcare institutions that want to access, view, store, import, print and share medical images efficiently and securely, while saving on IT maintenance costs.
iQ-4CLOUD offers everything you would expect from a cloud solution. It runs on all operating systems and browsers and has been cleared by CE and FDA.
This solution requires a PACS system that distributes medical imaging studies via http or https web links. By using web-based access, a secure connection can be established giving the user the possibility to link selected studies and reports with full interactivity.
Web-based access is recommended for in-house reading in hospitals or study transmission to referring physicians. When using compression, it is also ideal for remote reading or emergency support.
Our iQ-WEBX PACS is the perfect choice for web-based access. In combination with iQ-ROUTER, it can manage speedy and secure image transmissions by using compression.
DICOM Communication using image compression and VPN or SSL is a technology that uses standard DICOM nodes (IP, AET) on both communication sides. The communication of DICOM protocols takes place by using a compression proxy between the modalities on each site. This way, transmission speed can be increased significantly.
This solution is optimal for any highly frequented and/or time-critical connection between imaging centers. The communication can be bidirectional.
iQ-ROUTER helps you optimize your DICOM communication using compression and VPN.
DICOM email allows for sending emails manually from a DICOM node. Any selected DICOM object can be transmitted in a fast, secure and cost-saving way as the standard email infrastructure can be used.
DICOM Email is best for transmitting medical images between low frequented point-to-multipoint healthcare providers like small imaging centers with low imaging traffic.
iQ-VIEW already includes DICOM email as one of its features.
