Managing and archiving digital medical images on CDs or DVDs is indeed
frustrating and costly.
Not only do the physicians not have immediate access to studies when and
where they need them, but the administrative overhead cost is a monthly
recurring line item and sensitive patient data on CD or DVD can create HIPAA
compliance issues if they are lost or misplaced.
MVP allows you to transfer studies from your modalities over the network for
viewing, archiving and management. Think of MVP as your personalized and
cost effective DICOM Archive with a web-based viewer, which allows you to
view studies from anywhere.
The basic MVP systems are compatible with any DICOM modality and
available in storage capacities ranging from 1 to 4 TB. Larger MVP servers
include multi processor configurations, multi-terabyte storage arrays
utilizing fault tolerant, redundant configurations to keep your system
running, even if a drive should ever fail.
The MVP solution is an archive appliance which simply connects to your
network and starts receiving studies from your modality then allows them to
be viewed on intra-office workstations. There are optional configurations to
allow secure remote access to the archive and secure remote viewing.
There is no IT expertise required and no down time in operations for
installation. With our solutions, managing and archiving studies from
modalities like CT, MRI, CR, Ultrasound, and Nuclear Medicine becomes easier
and less costly, allowing imaging centers and clinics to focus on patient
care and profitable growth.
Our engineering staff, with over 30 years in ultrasound service, IT support
and software development have set design criteria on MVP solutions to be full
featured and cost effective. MVP solutions have the power to support a large
hospital but are affordable to a small practice.
The PACS server has a secure portal, user logon screen, that requires a
database, user, password and anti-spam code to log in. This is the entry-point
into the system to manage the study archive and view studies. It can be
configured for secure access from any intra-practice workstation, remote office
workstations and even at physician residences.
As an alternative, for quick study access, the viewer can be logged into
directly allowing studies to be searched and viewed without logging into the
When a technician ends a study, the DICOM info (patient data and images) is sent
automatically to the Sentinel PACS server. It is then available for viewing on
the Pacs server, physician workstations and even their home computer.
If you are running multiple practices in different locations/buildings, patient
info can be routed to an alternate location for archiving and study there.
CD/DVD copies of studies can also be created.
Screen Shot of studies awaiting physician review
Each physician, clinician and technician has a unique logon into the PACS
system. This allows studies to be organized. The above screen shows studies to
be reviewed by a physician after he logged into the system. The physician does
not have to search for their studies.
Workflow is organized to improve efficiency within the practice. Studies can be
marked public or private. If needed, public studies can be browed for comparison
or review. New studies for a patient can be compared to an older study in the
Notes and discussions can be added during review and are stored with the study.
The system can be set up for email notification when studies are transferred.
Studies can also be emailed, by the system, to the referring physician.
The MVP server has a built in viewer that can display single or loop images. The
left hand pane displays 'thumbnail' views of each image in the study. (the white
number in the thumbnail is the image number, the green number in the thumbnail
is how many images are in the loop). The viewer also displays the frame rate the
image was recorded at and the current playback frame rate. The viewer also has
many image enhancement features and a measurement utility.
View thumbnails of images in a study
By using the thumbnails page, you can select images for exporting, downloading,
viewing (with built in or alternate viewer), or opening the image converter
page. This page allows you many options for converting image formats and
Studies and Images can also be downloaded for storing information locally and/or
using a viewer installed on that workstation.
Sentinel's PACS server is flexible enough to integrate into your operation
without interrupting your workflow and will improve your capabilities.
By giving you new features and reducing workflow bottlenecks, this system will
pay for itself quickly while improving your imaging capabilities.
