Convert Any Medical Modality to DICOM TIMS DICOM System

  1. 1. TIMS DICOM System KEY FEATURES Acquire from any medical modality Analog video to DICOM conversion Static & streaming capture Capture the entire study DICOM send & receive One-click DICOM send Record to CD/DVD/USB DICOM & Windows print DICOM query/retrieve Export to AVI & JPG DICOM Modality Work List Live remote consultation Real-time teleradiology Review & edit studies Scanner input via TWAIN Import JPG, BMP, & AVI Convert Any Medical Modality to DICOM Problem: Hospitals and imaging clinics around the world need to convert their non-DICOM medical modalities to DICOM. Upgrading or replacing these modalities is too expensive, often costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. PACS is a large enough expense in and of itself. Replacing all of the non-DICOM devices for PACS connectivity purposes is simply not cost-effective. Solution: The TIMS DICOM® System. TM TIMS converts any non-DICOM medical modality to DICOM. The resulting digital study can be sent to PACS, recorded to CD/DVD/USB, and printed to film or paper. TIMS is available for a small fraction of the cost of a modality upgrade. Yes, TIMS can convert ANY medical modality to DICOM. This includes ultrasound, fluoroscopy, endoscopy, motion X-ray, angiography, nuclear medicine, MR, CT, and much more. TIMS captures both static images and streaming video at 30 frames per second. TIMS even converts to DICOM the JPG, BMP, and AVI images generated in pathology and dermatology applications. TIMS, the PACS Connectivity Solution: Most hospitals either have PACS or are thinking about implementing PACS in the next couple of years. TIMS connects any non-DICOM modality to PACS. Further, TIMS is an excellent solution for hospitals to “go digital” before PACS is implemented. With TIMS, studies can be recorded to CD/DVD/USB for soft-copy reads and storage. And when the hospital implements PACS at a later date, the modality is immediately connected to the PACS via TIMS. TIMS is the PACS connectivity solution.
  2. 2. TIMS WORKFLOW 1) Input patient information a) Automatically via DMWL b) Manually 2) Acquire images or video streams 3) Review & edit study 4) Output a) Send to PACS b) Record to CD/DVD/USB c) Print WHY DO I NEED TIMS? A variety of key personnel in the hospital benefit from the use of TIMS, the PACS connectivity solution. TIMS can take any non-DICOM medical modality and convert it to DICOM. By doing so, TIMS saves the hospital money, improves its efficiency, and leverages its investment in PACS. Hospital Administrator, PACS Administrators CFO, Department Heads Improves efficiency: Extends the use of PACS by converting all medical modalities to DICOM. Saves money: Extends the life of current medical equipment. Saves tens to hundreds Stays within budget: Connect all modalities to PACS of thousands of dollars in upgrades and new for hundreds of thousands of dollars less than equipment costs. purchasing modality upgrades and new modalities. Reduces costs: Eliminates or reduces the use of film & videotape. Radiologists, Cardiologists, Other Physicians Radiologic Technologists Saves time: Studies from all modalities are instantly Saves time: Improves workflow by eliminating available on PACS for review. Allows remote or reducing the use of film & videotape. consultation via the TIMS Consultant. Immediate access: Studies are instantly available Improves patient record portability: A CD/DVD of for review & editing. the study can be provided to the patient immediately after the study. Reduces errors: Provides ability to query patient data from a DICOM Modality Work List. Helps with teaching & presenting: Allows for the export of studies or portions of studies to AVI & JPG for use in presentations & reports.
  3. 3. The number of applications for TIMS is nearly endless. APPLICATIONS Our customers are finding new ways to use TIMS almost every day. Here is just a small sampling of the applications: Acquire the entire study from an angio suite and send to PACS. In a busy ultrasound clinic, use TIMS with progressive DICOM send to allow for instant reading of the studies. Acquire simultaneously from a bi-plane suite using two TIMS systems. At a rural hospital, use the TIMS Consultant to allow remote consultation by an on-call radiologist from home. Use TIMS as an emergency recovery system to DICOM receive from DICOM modalities if PACS fails. At a hospital without PACS, use TIMS to archive CT and MR studies to CD/DVD. Use TIMS on a mobile cart to perform DICOM query/retrieve in an OR. Record an entire motion X-ray or speech pathology procedure Use TIMS on a mobile cart to acquire from several different and send to PACS. modalities in a hospital throughout the day. At a teaching hospital, convert all of the archived echo studies With an older open MRI system, use TIMS rather than spending from videotape to DICOM. hundreds of thousands of dollars on a new open MRI system. And more...with TIMS, the application possibilities Use TIMS with an interventional radiology system rather than and cost savings are constantly expanding. purchasing an expensive DICOM upgrade. WHAT IF I DO NOT HAVE PACS YET? Yes, TIMS is for PACS connectivity, but it is much more. PACS is being TIMS Consultant (optional) installed or considered at most hospitals. Real-time teleradiology If PACS is not yet at your hospital, there Live transmission of the medical procedure are still several excellent reasons to invest Two-way audio communication in the cost-effective TIMS DICOM System. Remote diagnosis The first is TIMS will have you ready to Transmit DICOM files to the Consultant send to PACS as soon as it is implemented. Import/Export AVI & JPG Record to CD/DVD/USB/Network Convert these digital files to DICOM Archiving Integrate studies into presentations & reports Edit in video editors like Adobe Premiere® Eliminate or reduce use of film & videotape Provide a copy to the patient Ideal for teaching hospitals DICOM/Windows Print Record from Film Digitizers & Scanners Print selected images Compatible with any TWAIN interface Print an entire view or study Results can then be recorded to CD/DVD Up to 6 by 6 layouts SELECTED FEATURES Import JPG, BMP PNG, & AVI , Batch/Schedule Send Convert these digital files to DICOM Select multiple studies to be sent at a later time and date Send to PACS, burn to CD/DVD/USB, and print Excellent for scheduling DICOM sends during times of low network activity Ideal for pathology, dermatology, ophthalmology, and any application that generates digital images Progressive DICOM send: allows for the sending of DICOM files immediately after each acquisition Configurable Toolbar TIMS Consultant (optional) User-configurable toolbar Real-time teleradiology Streamline workflow according to individual needs by Real-time, live transmission of medical video over allowing the user to show just a few toolbar icons networks to a remote computer site Or show all toolbar icons for a quot;power-userquot; setup Allows for remote consultation & diagnosis Send full resolution DICOM files to the Consultant during the procedure
