Image management for fluoroscopy - automatic recording

FluoroStore offers comprehensive functionality for monoplane and biplane fluoroscopy.

Record

Save all fluoroscopic sequences and radiographic images locally, with the option to send to PACS. Synchronized recording of frontal and lateral plane image sequences.

Review

Quick search functionality for reviewing images directly from your workstation. Synchronized playback of frontal and lateral plane image sequences. Review images from any connected workstation throughout the hospital.

Edit

Create sequences of interest and export to a local file or send to PACS.

Store

Archive and store images locally, for example in a NAS-storage, to reduce PACS storage costs.

Handle large volumes of image data

Long fluoroscopy procedures, common in neuro-radiology, for instance, generate large volumes of image data. To preserve storage space and limit costs, normally only radiographs are saved in PACS. FluoroStore is a fluoroscopy management system that records automatically as the pedal is pressed. Optionally, recording can be started with the click of a button. All fluoroscopic sequences and radiographic images are saved locally, for example in a NAS-storage. FluoroStore can then be used to view or edit image material directly from your local workstation — with no loss of image quality. It is also possible to send selected sequences to PACS.

Manage monoplane and biplane imaging

FluoroStore can be used for monoplane as well as biplane imaging and offers parallel and synchronized recording and playback of frontal and lateral plane image sequences. Recording is done automatically. Reviewing of sequences can be done directly from the workstation.

Reduce storage costs

Use FluoroStore to complement the X-ray machine’s storage function and save image data from procedures while keeping PACS storage requirements and associated costs low. With FluoroStore, it is cheaper to save complete image material from long procedures because all data is saved in a storage solution outside of the PACS system. You can also choose to send selected or edited sequences to PACS.

When you need to review a prior examination, FluoroStore offers quick search functionality in the archives.
