Applications

Images-on-Call, across all radiology information management systems, is the premier developer of applications designed specifically for the movement of images from point “A” to “B”. This task is not taken lightly by the engineers at Images-on-Call, constantly working to improve workflow within the image movement paradigm.

  • Made for PACS – Images-on-Call does provides devices for capturing images and moving them into the PACS environment. Through the use of film digitizers, Images-on-Call converts legacy modality images into DICOM for implementation throughout the PACS enterprise. In addition, images produced for PACS systems may also be sent to other locations fulfilling teleradiology functions.

  • Image Networks – Increasingly, hospitals are moving medical images in many directions through many processes. In some cases, images need to be available throughout the hospital. In other cases, images are only required to be “networked” to the home. And still in other cases, images must be moved throughout the Healthcare Enterprise. The movement of images is an Images-on-Call specialty. Whether across phone lines or Gigabit networks, Images-on-Call has a solution.

  • Viewing Software – The Achilles heel in most systems is the user interface, or image viewing software. Images-on-Call has been producing reference quality image ViewStation software since 1988. Each new iteration of software is greeted by radiologists for its additions but more importantly, for what stays the same – Image Quality. Once again, Images-on-Call has produced a user interface – this time ViewStation7 for PACS – that will delight radiologists due to the application’s elegance without the fluff. Filling up usable desktop space with buttons, menus, and other non-diagnostic “clutter” reduces image space and decreases your workflow. That is why Images-on-Call took the unusual step of allowing the maximum amount of desktop space strictly for images, which allows you to see more images in less time than competitor’s products. Images-on-Call also offers ViewBrowser software that is designed with clinicians in mind. The ViewBrowser software is freely distributed to customers who install the Images-on-Call Clinician Internet Image Server.
