Dicom Imaging Systems’ imagExplorer software transmits electronic image attachments via the Internet to dental insurance companies and third-party payers (PNN 3/00). The Vancouver, BC-based firm developed this capability in a joint project with National Electronic Attachment (NEA) of Atlanta to tap into the electronic data interchange market in dentistry. imagExplorer includes NEA’s Fast Attach software, which allows images to be transmitted electronically to NEA’s repository, where they can be viewed. Dicom is in talks with several companies that run “electronic attachment clearinghouses” to increase the availability of its images.
