RAIM Viewer

Description

RAIM Viewer is the new Medical Imaging Visualizer developed entirely by the Digital Medical Imaging Center of the UDIAT Center Diagnostic SA (Corporación Sanitaria Parc Taulí, Sabadell), with Microsoft.Net 3.5 technology. This allows its use with virtually any type of PC running Microsoft Windows.

It is a viewer oriented to the clinical environment, but with tools that can be used for diagnosis in certain environments of use.

General characteristics

  • Visualization of most currently existing DICOM medical objects, not just radiology imaging: Electrocardiograms (ECG), PDF, Video, etc. With specific tools for each of them.
     
  • Launch and deployment through a Web browser. Easy installation and maintenance, due to the fact that all installation and update is performed in a transparent way to the user.
     
  • Proprietary integration optimized to work against the PACS RAIM Server 6. Integration with any standard DICOM PACS via DICOM protocol.
     
  • Three models or execution environments:
  1. Model integrated with RIS / HIS, in which case the viewer appears as a component of the RIS / HIS with which it integrates and offers the visualization of images upon request of the RIS / HIS.
     
  2. Model PCClient, in which case the viewer is installed and invoked through a shortcut to the desktop, independently of an RIS / HIS.
     
  3. Model CD, is executed when the viewfinder is part of a CD delivered to the patient along with their images.
     
  • Management of users and the profile associated with it, this allows them to manage their preferences. These profiles are mobile and are stored on the PACS server.
     
  • Multimonitor work, detecting the number and capabilities of the connected monitors and with the possibility of choosing the ones that can be used or not at all times.
     
  • Ability to apply massive changes to the configuration of each of the viewers centrally through the PACS server.
     
  • Support for the vast majority of DICOM images, that is, any type of grayscale image with 8,12 or 16 bits depth, as well as a color DICOM image, including "True Color".
     
  • Management of Hanging Protocols to determine the layout and the different display steps depending on the user, the available hardware (monitors) and the study to be displayed. Possibility to change the layout manually.
     
  • Default work for series, so actions are performed on all actions in the series
     
  • Interactive display window change (grayscale, Window & Level) using predefined window buttons for TAC images. It can be applied to one or all of the selected images at once.
     
  • Interactive zoom for images.
     
  • Magnification of images, rotations and mirror rotation at the level of an image or of a whole series.
     
  • Measurements and annotations.
     
  • Possibility of sending the annotations to the PACS so that other viewers or users can consume them.
     
  • Viewing Presentations States, including those made with other viewers. Management of the different layers of Presentation State, with the possibility of activating or editing them independently.
     
  • Comparison of series synchronized with the actual position of the patient (TaulíPosition). Ability to resynchronize the position of the series.
     
  • Viewing patient information in the DICOM image header.
     
  • Dynamic and real-time generation of the intersection of planes in CT and MR images, allowing, for example, the locator to see the cut with the rest of the projections.
     
  • Ability to work with large volume studios. Preferably working in memory but with the ability to use SWAP mechanism if needed.
     
  • Interpretation of KINS to optimize downloads. Allows partial download of studio images to optimize performance.
     
  • Generation of complete series vascular subtraction.
     
  • MPR reconstruction.
     
  • DICOM WaveForm Data display. Mainly ECG natively DICOM. Allowing changes in the time scale as well as in the magnitude of the signal.
     
  • Ability to choose the channels to be viewed.
     
  • Ability to measure ECG wave signals, both period and magnitude.
     
  • Ability to compare different ECGs by overlapping and allowing their resynchronization.
     
  • Ability to export the current ECG view to PDF.
     
  • Network speed detection to determine the best download mechanism for targets. It differs WADO access, Proprietary Compression and Streaming.
     
  • WADO access for downloading objects stored in a PACS. Allowing standard image compression based on the JPEG standard.
     
  • Ability to download objects to proprietary compression developed by CIMD that offers lossless quality and a 1: 2 compression ratio.
     
  • Access to images via proprietary Streaming based on Wavelet transform that offers very fast access to low quality and dynamic improvement without cost over the amount of information transmitted.
     
  • Both proprietary compression and streaming require the addition of a RAIM Viewer Cache proxy server, which prepares objects for more efficient transmission.
     
  • RAIM Viewer allows direct queries to the PACS configured under the most common search criteria.
     
  • It is possible to have a database of local studies that have been downloaded from a server or imported from a directory or CD.
     
  • Ability to work simultaneously against more than one PACS server.
     
  • Very small hardware requirements, no specific accelerator graphics card required, as all operations are performed using the advanced features of the machine's processor.

RAIM CLOUD

Description

It responds to a new paradigm of PACS, centralizing in the cloud the storage of the activity of Health Centers.

Not only is the data repository shared, always maintaining security policies so that each center is the sole owner of the data, but also not sharing the functionality and resources of the platform (multiple tenure).

Design goals and constraints of RAIM Cloud system architecture

  • Replace local PACSs with a shared global PACS.

  • To make Teleradiology and Telemedicine a native thing.

  • Cost reduction over previous models, optimizing the use of resources by sharing them on cloud platforms.

  • Ease of sharing information.

  • Improved availability and contingency over previous architectures.

  • Adaptation to new scenarios.

  • Clustered deployment of the solution with more than one node working at the same time.

  • Ease of deployment.

  • The architecture is restricted to a solution based on Microsoft SQL Server database managers.

  • Multitenant is implemented to be able to exchange and share resources and costs at the time of application execution.

    Integration with the different radiological modalities with digital acquisition: Computed Radiography, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, etc.

  • Visualization through any DICOM compatible viewer. In this regard, RAIM Cloud is designed to be fully compatible with the DICOM standard and the services offered by it (FIND- * SCP / * SCU, Move- * SCP / * SCU, Store- * SCP, MPPS , etc.).

  • Eliminates the need for local IT infrastructure.

The RAIM Cloud solution consists of the following by-products to deliver:

  • Common RAIM Server solution components.

  • Components in RAIM Server for synchronization with the cloud platform for locally made changes (RAIM ServerSync).

  • RAIM Server Components for Management of Cloud Object Storage and Distribution (RAIM Server Store).

  • RAIM Cloud Core solution, or the same, the main component of the global RAIM Cloud solution, is the multiplexed handle of external requests.

  • These by-products form an indivisible unit for the purpose of being delivered to the user.

Used in the Catalan Health Service and the Cántabro de Salud Service.
