Telemis introduces next-generation 4.4 PACS software.

New 'Easy' & 'Everywhere' software features deliver comprehensive comparison, sharing and mobility functions

Telemis, the specialist in medical imaging solutions, is launching a new version of its popular Picture Archiving and Communication Software (PACS) at the Journées Françaises de Radiologie (JFR) exhibition and congress in Paris. Telemis-Medical PACS version 4.4 now features simplified comparison of previous images, improved sharing capabilities, and new functions that support mobile access.

The new 4.4 PACS developed by Telemis is built around two key concepts: 'Easy' and 'Everywhere'.

Easy: For many years now, Telemis has highlighted its mono and multimodal comparison capabilities. The new version includes instant comparison features that simplify patient assessments, speed oncological observations and follow-up, and help with comparative interpretation of ICU imaging (Intensive Care Unit).

Everywhere: Access to remote images via teleradiology or through a simple consultation with a family doctor is already a daily reality for users of Telemis PACS. Version 4.4 brings further significant advances in terms of remote viewing and streaming of captured images and reports. Furthermore the updated TM-Publisher Web - a regional image distribution solution from Telemis - now has an interface optimized for tablets including the iPad 3 and devices running on Android 4.0.

Telemis has also made major improvements in the area of multi-planar reconstruction (MPR) and the overlay of the PT / CT images used in nuclear medicine. In addition a new "pause" mode allows radiologists to easily pause and resume work, giving them greater flexibility when, for example, handling interruptions, responding to requests from colleagues or taking time out to perform other job functions.

Telemis CEO, Stephane Ketelaer, said: "The ability for medical professionals to quickly and easily access, share and compare relevant files, images and videos from as many places and on as many devices as possible speeds patient diagnosis and treatment. The additional functionalities built in version 4.4 of Telemis-Medical PACS address these requirements, making it simpler for medical staff to do what they do best."

As with previous years, Telemis is using this year's Journées Françaises de Radiologie to showcase its latest prototypes and forward-looking technologies. Visitors have the opportunity to exchange their views with Telemis R&D engineers, discuss the benefits of the concepts on show, and vote for their favourite prototype technologies. Telemis is likely to include in future PACS versions the technology concepts that receive the strongest support at this year's event.
