Images-on-Call adds new server

Images-on-Call has released Teleradiology Server (TS), which allows clinicians to view images from their home or office. With TS, physicians can dial into the server with a special version of the company's ViewStation software and look at a patient's list of images. Images can then be selected for transmission to the clinician's computer, according to the Dallas-based firm.

The first TS was installed in the second quarter at Southeast Georgia Regional Medical Center in Brunswick, GA.

In other technology news, Images-on-Call has installed nearly 100 of its DICOM gateways since the product's introduction in 1997, said Bob Maher, sales manager. Sixty of these gateways are the company's DG1 model, which enables technologists to send images to a teleradiology network. Full, 12-bit windowing and leveling of images is possible at the remote site, Maher said.

Images-on-Call also offers DG2, which allows users to move images from a remote location or from a non-DICOM device into a DICOM network. Offerings in the works include DG-P, a system that will allow customers to print to DICOM-connected film printers, Maher said.
