Where smart research goes to work.

DICOM

If a picture’s worth a thousand words, just imagine how much more it’s worth with your clinical data attached seamlessly to it.

THE TOP LINE

  1. Collect, transport and access DICOM images right in eCOS
  2. Save images directly on Case Report Forms
  3. Enable advanced workflow involving DICOM images

Quite frankly, mailing boxes of CDs chock-full of DICOM images from your sites to your office or the core lab just doesn’t make a lot of sense. It wastes a time, energy and money, and it increases the risk of human error.

Thanks to the DICOM module, you can toss those CDs in the bin with your old eight-track cassette tapes. Integrated directly into the eClinicalOS (eCOS) platform, our DICOM module makes it easy for everyone on the team – from technicians and clinicians to CRAs, data managers and adjudicators – to access, view, collect and transport all DICOM images in a study.

Putting a Photographic Memory to Work Linking subject data with their PET and CT scans, MRIs or ultrasounds doesn’t have to be a tiresome and time-consuming process. Quite the opposite, in fact. With DICOM, you can effortlessly save medical images directly on your CRFs, and you can route them to any user or group in the study.

Anywhere you find the need to align study data with its accompanying imagery – during adjudication, image review, submissions and more – you’ll find the DICOM module makes it effortless. In eCOS, DICOM images are incorporated into any desired workflow, just like any other data point.

Click . . . And There’s Your Image

Thanks to our “Zero-Download” viewer, the DICOM module can deliver images in real time when and where you need them. That’s right; you don’t need to buy special software or download massive programs to view DICOM images. It’s all right there in eCOS. (Your IT folks will be very pleased, indeed.)

And while eCOS lets you use DICOM through Merge Healthcare’s iConnect® Access, a powerful DICOM and XDS viewer, we’re working to make it possible for you to easily incorporate DICOM by adding support for a range of other viewers with predefined integration. With the DICOM module, medical imaging is simply another source of clinical data, available to you anytime, anywhere from any device with a Web browser.

Ensures Regulatory Compliance for Privacy

Compliance with privacy guidelines (including 21 CFR Part 11) is effortless with our DICOM image uploader that allows de-identification of DICOM headers as well as pixel de-identification right inside your workflow. The system automatically redacts all patient health information before an image can be forwarded from a user’s computer. This means fewer data queries, processing delays and unusable data records.

What does DICOM stand for?

DICOM stands for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine. DICOM represents years of effort to create the most universal and fundamental standard in digital medical imaging.
