biz:Dicom Print Tool Server


Software for direct printing of radiological medical reports with DICOM images for Konica Minolta laser printers.

biz:Dicom software has two operation modes:

As an automatic service
Images are printed directly without human intervention. Images can be sent from modalities or from any other DICOM node (PACS, workstation, etc.) which can handle DICOM files using DICOM Storage.

As an independent interface
This means you can view the studies in the queue pending printing and change the print order or priority, delete them or change the print settings.

The core of biz:Dicom software is a DICOM server that receives images from DICOM nodes connected to it. You need to set the AE Title and receive port and enter this data in the sending nodes (modalities, PACS, etc.).


Settings and rules


There are various configuration options plus you can define print rules according to different parameters.

Each rule can be used to define the type of image to which it applies and the output format of the images by applying a number of filters.

Filters
  • Delivery mode
  • Sending AE Title
  • Description (to specify a keyword or fragment to search the description of the DICOM header of the study)
Printing features
  • Columns and rows to print per sheet (each image is printed in one of the resulting cells)
  • Landscape. Allows you to rotate images 90º
  • Inversion. Allows you to print certain types of image on a white background to save toner
  • Template. Allows you to select the texts to be overprinted on the images
  • Printer. You can select the output printer
  • Selecting the paper tray for the front/back and inner pages
  • Selecting covers for the front and back for each print rule
  • Special booklet sizes for machine folding and stapling
  • Option to set the DICOM Level (grey-scale window) for each rule
  • Force printing in black and white to reduce costs
  • Print priority system to speed up certain types of study
  • Optional inclusion of sheet for placing adhesive for CD on the last page
  • Preview of documents


Templates

Templates are data structures to be overprinted on radiological images.

You can define an unlimited number of templates based on fixed texts or variable fields to be extracted from the DICOM header of the image.

You can distribute these data in different areas of the image, superimposed on it and print them on each sheet or just the first.


Report

You can print the report in the same process as the images.

Normally images are available before the report. In biz:Dicom there is a configurable option that prevents the study being printed until the report is available.

Usually the report is not in DICOM mode. Consequently HIS / RIS / PACS should keep a copy of it in a shared folder based on the study number (Accession Number) as an identification criterion. This way you can synchronise its printing with the images.

Study completion criteria
Many modalities or PACS are unable to send MPPS at the end of the study, so the completion of the study is carried out by time.

You can define this completion time in the configuration section (default 5 minutes). Thus when the server receives images, it stores them in a temporary folder and when the specified number of minutes has elapsed after receipt of the last image of the study, it prints them as long as the report is available.


Monitoring and print options

biz:Dicom software makes it possible to monitor the status of printer consumables (toner, paper in each tray, etc.) at all times and also select the tray (which can accommodate paper of different weights) for printing the report and the DICOM images in the study.

Image inversion
Radiological images usually have a black background due to the nature of the radiological films used to date, because in reality they are negatives of them.

You can print with the same appearance on paper, but that means using a lot more toner because you have to cover the paper’s white background with black.

The application lets you define print rules with positive radiological imaging, i.e. black on white. This can achieve around 80% toner savings. In all cases it is the user who decides the appearance of their prints.

Directly create DICOM CDs/DVDs from any PACS or modality interface. Direct control of the EPSON robotized CD/DVD recorder with an inkjet printer for the secure and personalised silk screen printing of patient identification data.

Includes an independent viewer specifically for DICOM and JPEG images so that patients and doctors can consult their studies from any location.

The images for series and studies can be exported to any device: CD/DVD, USB memory stick or network memory units.

Direct control of the EPSON robotized Discproducer PP100 CD/DVD recorder, which includes an inkjet printer for the secure and personalised silk screen printing of patient identification data.

Choose the most appropriate biz:Dicom application depending on how you obtain images from the PACS:

  • b:D CD/DVD Medical Record Tool QR


    • Using DICOM Query/Retrieve: the ModalVision tool allows you to access patient information and studies with an identifier (this could be a patient number or case note number).
    • Through importing DICOM files from a disc or external device.

  • b:D CD/DVD Medical Record Tool SERVER


    • Through DICOM Storage: with this process, all PACS, modalities and applications which provide the option to resend images to an external DICOM node (using DICOM Push, DICOM Send or DICOM Storage) can send images to the ModalVision tool.

Specifications

Selecting images to export:

  • The user has complete control over the selection of images through use of an agile and simple interface which allows:

    • Display of each one of a series in a study.
    • Selecting of all images with a simple 'click'.
    • Selecting of individual images.
    • Selecting of a complete series.
    • Selecting one out of every n images (for multicut studies with numerous images).

  • The user can also drag images from any application onto the interface, at which point they are automatically "dicomized" and integrated into the collection of images to be recorded using the EPSON Discproducer.

  • Similarly, the user can see a preview of each of the images before they are recorded onto the CD or DVD.

The application can be continually maintained in the foreground, so that it "floats" over other PACS windows and the display is not lost.

The image viewer included in the CDs/DVDs does not require installation or administrator privileges in the equipment and is therefore completely independent.

Display of all DICOM tags for each image (DICOM Dump).

Printing of images with format editing in DICOM (through DICOM Print) and Windows printers.

Control module for images sent through any DICOM node.

Selection of multiple studies for a patient in a single operation.

Years of experience offering a PACS solution to private practices, clinics and medium-sized hospitals has allowed us to design ModalVision PACS 2.0 to meet their needs.

Intuitive interface and operation
ModalVision PACS 2.0 is a system based on the principle that users should be able to perform any action with the minimum number of clicks. So all of the most commonly used information can be found on the main screen.
In addition, it uses reading protocols which allow for a customized display of each analysis type, such as, for example, breast screening.

ModalVision Web
Allows you to view studies, series, images and reports from any computer with access to the internet with a minimum load time and high quality, thanks to compression to between 30% and 90% of the size of the original image.

Additional information associated with the study
Each study consists in a set of DICOM images associated with a report, annex documents, voice notes, status of the study indicating whether or not it is pending, and the key words (diagnosis).

Search
This is one of the most powerful features offered by ModalVision PACS 2.0. It incorporates the most common searches by default, such as the studies from today, yesterday or over the last few days. The system includes the option to search using combined factors, such as: studies pending viewing, key diagnosis words, description (mamo, breast) or modality (CR, CT, US).

Comparing studies
ModalVision PACS 2.0 offers this tool which allows for a comparison between the current study and previous ones, which is very useful when examining the progress of a patient.
In addition, it includes a list which allows you to view and export images from several studies at the same time.

Exporting data
ModalVision PACS 2.0 simplifies the exporting of studies and data to a CD/DVD, USB, hard disc, Epson Robotized CD Recorder, DICOM Node, DICOM printer or PostScript and sending by email. This information is encoded and accessible through an autonomous DICOM viewer.

Data Management
The system allows access for registered users; each of these has defined privileges for accessing the system's tools. Each action performed by a user is recorded, in compliance with the Data Protection Law.
