Capintec Selects Numa to Design Digital Thyroid Application
NumaCap to Power Captus 3000 Thyroid Uptake Exams
Numa, Inc. (Amherst, NH), the nuclear medicine connectivity company, has
signed an agreement with Capintec, a leading supplier of energy measurement
products and services, to develop an application for the digital reporting and
communication of Captus 3000 Thyroid Update Systems exams. These systems
measure thyroid iodine uptake and are based on an iodine-based radionuclide.
Under the agreement, Numa will develop a digital application for integration into
the thyroid device that will create a complete DICOM record for each patient exam,
including demographics and a secondary screen capture of the alphanumeric exam
data. The new NumaCap software will interface with a RIS or PACS and query the
DICOM worklist provider to populate the Captus report with patient demographics,
saving facilities significant time in data re-entry.
After study completion, the Numa application will export a snapshot of the test
results. Completed patient DICOM files will be available for viewing on any DICOM
nuclear medicine or PACS workstation and for transmission over the hospital network
or Internet as well as archiving using a PACS.
“As medical facilities increasingly convert to a digital environment with
connectivity across the enterprise, digital storage and transmission of all nuclear
medicine exams is crucial,” commented Lawrence Smith president of Numa. “Numa is
proud to have been selected by Capintec, the industry leader, to enable this advanced
connectivity for thyroid uptake exams and looks forward to a long and productive
relationship with the company.”
For over fourteen years, Numa has been the leader in nuclear medicine
connectivity and system integration, with solutions that deliver enhanced throughput,
efficiency and productive workflow.
