Eastman Kodak has upgraded its Access ultrasound digital image management offering, adding a Windows NT file server and new software for the unit's workstation. The system upgrades are part of the company's effort to improve the offering's productivity and connectivity, according to Kodak, whose ultra- sound miniPACS efforts are based in Allendale, NJ.

Kodak made the switch to the Windows NT platform in an attempt to decrease user training requirements and simplify system administration, according to the firm. Application File Server carries a new interface that helps system administrators manage image archives, system backup, and patient databases. The new file server is a DICOM service class provider, and can supply patient images and study information requested by compatible DICOM workstations.
