MEDWEB WORKSTATION FEATURES DICOM DVR.

Medweb, has introduced its first Mobile OR Gateway and Workstation with a DICOM digital video recorder (DVR), providing a fully integrated DICOM acquisition and viewing application in a mobile, compact, rugged unit.

As the ultimate in OR PACS solutions, it consists of a small, lightweight, diskless OR PACS workstation on a steel, ergonomically designed cart that allows for easy retrieval and display of images from the OR Gateway, or from any PACS system. The mobile cart has a pneumatic arm that allows the user to easily position displays to the most convenient height during a patient procedure. The diskless workstation uses state-of-the-art gigabit networking to eliminate the unreliability of mounting a disk-based PC on the device, thereby making it easy and reliable to move from OR to OR between cases without risk of corrupting the server with multiple reboots as is common with other solutions.

The workstation features a DICOM DVR, adding the ability to capture analog streaming video from DICOM or non-DICOM devices and immediately convert them to DICOM at rates exceeding 30 frames per second at 1k x 1k resolutions. It can accommodate typical color or grayscale streaming video from high resolution fluoroscopy, C-Arm, or cardiac ultrasound units, and can capture and convert still images as well. The diskless capture interface communicates with the OR Gateway over standard gigabit Ethernet.

A fully Web-based set up allows remote access to the OR Gateway from multiple imaging devices that may be located in multiple OR suites. The completely mobile unit is equipped with a 12-hour battery and can use wireless 802.11 networking, with complete encryption.

The server adds MPPS, SC, and IAN, MWL, and QR classes to devices that may only have support for modality worklist and DICOM store and print.

Medweb, a provider of distributed teleradiology, PACS and telemedicine solutions since 1992, holds several major patents for web-based medical image viewing. Its clinical information solutions are built upon public standards such as DICOM, HL7 and Internet technologies. Medweb's platform of reliable, secure and affordable products is designed to dramatically improve the delivery of high-quality healthcare, reduce provider costs and increase profitability for medical care organizations. Due to their proven reliability and success, Medweb's solutions are used by the US Army, Navy and Air Force, as well as physicians, radiology groups, hospitals and universities around the world.
