How Medicai integrates with oncology imaging workflows

Medicai’s cloud PACS system seamlessly integrates into existing healthcare IT environments, supporting various imaging modalities used in oncology such as MRI, CT scans, ultrasound, bone scans, and nuclear medicine. This integration not only simplifies the management of imaging tests for cancer but also supports the detailed analysis and tracking required for ongoing cancer care and clinical trials.

Connect & Retrieve

Our multi-enterprise solution enables modern oncology practices to automatically receive imaging from their own PACS and modalities, connect to partners, and allow their patients to easily upload their previous imaging studies and other medical files.

Store & Manage

Medicai's interoperable imaging infrastructure scales reliably with your practice's needs. All the studies, together with complementary files (reports, images, and videos), are stored in a secure and compliant way (HIPAA, GDPR). Thanks to our robust API and our granular access control level, the data is readily available. This makes the implementation of advanced oncology workflows a breeze (like multidisciplinary diagnostic boards).

Access & Visualize

Team members can access, view, and collaborate easily with our ready-made web portal for doctors and mobile apps for doctors. They can also share their cases with specialists outside the organization securely and in a compliant way. The Patient Portal allows your clinic to share imaging data with its patients. Tech-savvy oncology practices leverage our APIs and our DICOM components to embed DICOM capabilities into their existing web portals and apps.

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.

"We started from the need to create a patient record that is easily accessible, allows information to be added as it accumulates, and makes it easy for any user to search (the record and within it). In addition, as we work with collaborators from other healthcare institutions, it is important for us to be able to securely share the information needed to make decisions. Medicai largely solves our needs."

FAQs about cancer imaging basics

What are imaging tests?

Imaging tests are procedures that create detailed images of the structures inside the body, which are crucial for diagnosing and monitoring cancer. These tests, including nuclear imaging like MRI, CT scans or ultrasound, and PET scans, help oncologists assess the presence, size, and spread of tumors, guiding treatment decisions and tracking therapy effectiveness in oncology care.

What are the methods of oncological imaging?

Methods of oncological imaging include MRI, CT scans, PET scans, bone scans, and ultrasound, each offering detailed views that are crucial for effective cancer management. Medicai’s system supports these imaging methods, integrating them into a unified platform that facilitates comprehensive diagnostic imaging and treatment planning in oncology.

Is oncology different from radiology?

Yes, oncology specifically focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of cancer, utilizing diagnostic imaging as a core component. Radiology, while broader, includes the use of imaging to diagnose and treat a variety of medical conditions across different specialties. Medicai enhances both fields by providing a platform that supports extensive radiological and oncological imaging needs.

What imaging is used to detect cancer?

Imaging tests used to detect cancer encompass a broad range of modalities such as CT scans, MRIs, ultrasound, and PET scans, all supported by Medicai’s cloud PACS. Each modality offers unique benefits in the detection and monitoring of various cancers, providing critical information that guides cancer care engaged through Medicai’s cloud PACS.

What is oncology imaging?

Oncology imaging uses various diagnostic imaging techniques to visualize, diagnose, and monitor cancer. These techniques, integral to the practice of oncology, include MRI, CT scans, and other forms of tomography, which are vital for the accurate assessment and follow-up of cancer patients. The cloud PACS system from Medicai effectively manages these imaging tests, assisting the oncology care team in delivering targeted treatment.
