Most medical imaging centers have now completed or are completing the transaction to digital technologies. This means digital acquisition modalities, digital image files instead of films, diagnostic viewing workstation instead of lightboxes and reading room. The central node of this fully-digital workflow is the PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System), a system which is able to receive digital images from modalities and workstation trough the DICOM protocol, to archive them, to send them to other DICOM entities, to answer the queries for studies by other network nodes, to produce portable media containing the digital images.
The powerful DICOM Publishing Software solution within the All Pro Solutions Apollo MD Series and Zeus MD Series is a complete PACS system. It provides full DICOM compliance for the DICOM Store and DICOM Query/Retrieve services, hence it is able to exchange images with all nodes of the DICOM network. The DICOM Publishing Software has been designed to manage large DICOM storage archives, and it features advanced CD/DVD & Blu-Ray Disc production capabilities through the All Pro Solutions Apollo MD and Zeus MD Series automated CD/DVD/BD publishers. Produced media can contain DICOM and non-DICOM files, as well as a cross-platform auto-running DICOM viewer application.
