Eastman Kodak used SCAR to showcase several new services and products. Among them was a suite of professional services addressing privacy and security issues for image and information transfer. Its Healthcare Privacy and Security Services are designed to help customers meet the privacy and security requirements mandated in the U.S. by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and related requirements worldwide.

New CR software promises to improve productivity and streamline workflow by allowing facilities to share patient and exam data among multiple Kodak CR systems. The software eliminates the need to scan CR cassettes on the same CR system where patient data were entered. Instead, the DirectView Capture Link System automatically finds the patient information and associates it with the correct cassette. The system can support up to five networked DirectView CR 800 or CR 900 systems and up to 20 networked DirectView remote operations panels.

DirectView Secure Remote Service Access provides a secure, high-speed link to Kodak PACS, digital radiography, and computed radiography systems. The link supports the remote performance of many service and preventive maintenance tasks.

Works-in-progress included 3D display software and integrated digital dictation technologies for the DirectView DX workstation. The 3D software is designed to support 3D imaging, rendering, and measurement applications on a PACS diagnostic workstation for volumetric imaging modalities, such as CT and MRI. The dictation software converts spoken words into electronic text.
