PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) is a healthcare technology for the short-
and long-term storage, retrieval, management, distribution and presentation of medical
A PACS allows a healthcare organization (such as a Hospital or Radiology Center) to capture, store, view and share all types of images internally and externally. When deploying a PACS, the organization needs to consider the environment in which it will be used (In-patient, Diagnostics - X-Ray, Sonography, Scan, MRI, Specialties) and the other electronic systems with which it will integrate.
HSS PACS solution supports modalities like:
- CR / DR
- ULTRASOUND (DICOM)
HSS PACS is designed to give you the tools you need, with the
support you need, everyday.
HSS PACS 'networks' with any digital modality or archive, immediately allowing users with standard PCs to view full-quality, non-compressed images over LAN network connection. Radiologists, clinicians, referring physicians are enabled to use the integrated Viewer to view DICOM images in lossless quality from anywhere at any time, in real time.
HSS PACS utilizes existing network infrastructure and hardware. It further reduces the cost by filmless transition without compromising on quality of service.
HSS PACS Protocols
HSS PACS uses several protocols for a DICOM viewer to retrieve images from a PACS server (HSS PACS is compatible with all these protocols):
- C-MOVE. This protocol REQUIRES to declare each DICOM viewer on the PACS server (see below). Most DICOM viewers are compatible with this protocol.
- C-GET. This protocol doesn’t require to declare the DICOM viewer on the PACS server. Only few DICOM viewers support this protocol.
- WADO. This protocol doesn’t require to declare the DICOM viewer on the PACS server. Only few DICOM viewers support this protocol. This protocol is extremely fast. As far as possible this protocol is recommend to use.
