Integrated DICOM Viewer Sample

This is a sample of how a DICOM file looks like when viewed in Medicai. Available in both our web and mobile apps, and also easily embedabble in your own solution, our DICOM viewer solution comes connected to a cloud PACS readily available.

What is Medicai's Deconstructed PACS?

Medicai Deconstructed PACS allows healthcare organizations to store, manage, and share medical images securely across multiple locations. Unlike traditional centralized PACS, which relies on a single central server, deconstructed PACS utilizes distributed computing technology to store images across multiple servers.

Enhanced Clinical Collaboration

Our deconstructed PACS system enables enhanced clinical collaboration by providing healthcare professionals with real-time access to patient data, medical images, and notes. This helps improve communication and collaboration between healthcare professionals, leading to better patient outcomes.

Improved accessibility

Our deconstructed PACS makes medical images accessible from any location, allowing healthcare professionals to view and analyze images remotely. Medicai's deconstructed PACS system helps improve workflow efficiency by enabling healthcare professionals to access patient data, medical images, and other information from a single platform. This can help reduce the risk of errors or duplication of effort, and can also save time.

Scalability and flexibility

Our deconstructed PACS is scalable, meaning it can grow and evolve with the needs of the healthcare organization.

Unlike traditional PACS systems, which are often monolithic and difficult to modify or scale, a deconstructed PACS system is modular and flexible. This means that healthcare organizations can select the specific components they need, and easily add or remove components as their needs change.

Reduced costs 

Our deconstructed PACS reduces costs by eliminating the need for expensive hardware and infrastructure. By allowing healthcare organizations to select only the components they need, a deconstructed PACS system can be more cost-effective than a traditional PACS system. This can be especially beneficial for smaller healthcare organizations or those with limited budgets.

How does our deconstructed PACS work?

Image Acquisition:

The process begins with image acquisition, where medical imaging modalities such as X-ray machines, CT scanners, or MRI systems capture patient images. These images are then transmitted to the deconstructed PACS for storage and further processing.

Image Storage:

In a deconstructed PACS, image storage is typically handled by a separate service called a Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA). The VNA is responsible for storing and managing the images in a standardized format, such as DICOM. By using a VNA, the deconstructed PACS decouples the storage functionality from other services, enabling easier data sharing and integration with other systems.

Metadata and Workflow Management:

Another important component of a deconstructed PACS is the metadata and workflow management service. This service is responsible for managing patient and image metadata, including demographic information, study details, and image annotations. It also handles the workflow orchestration, routing the images to the appropriate users or systems based on predefined rules or user-defined workflows.

Image Viewing and Analysis:

The deconstructed PACS incorporates a separate image viewing and analysis service, a "universal viewer." This viewer provides healthcare professionals with a unified interface to access and review medical images from various sources. The universal viewer supports advanced visualization tools, measurement capabilities, and annotation features, enabling clinicians to interpret and analyze the images efficiently.

Integration and Interoperability:

Interoperability is a key advantage of the deconstructed PACS. It allows for seamless integration with other healthcare systems, such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs) or Radiology Information Systems (RIS). Through standardized interfaces and protocols, the deconstructed PACS can exchange data with these systems, ensuring the availability of relevant patient information and streamlining the overall workflow.

Scalability and Flexibility:

One of the primary benefits of a deconstructed PACS is its scalability and flexibility. Since the components are decoupled, each service can be scaled independently based on the organization's needs. This modular approach also enables healthcare organizations to select and integrate specific services or replace them with more advanced or specialized solutions as technology evolves.

Data Security and Privacy:

Our deconstructed PACS places significant emphasis on data security and privacy. Robust access controls, encryption mechanisms, and audit trails are implemented to protect patient information. Additionally, compliance with regulatory standards, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), ensures that patient data remains confidential and secure.
