eRAD PACS Viewer

Simple, sophisticated, rules-based image delivery.

The eRAD PACS Viewer provides secure, web-based image viewing. Put the power of eRAD PACS in anyone’s hands—referring physicians, surgeons, diagnosticians, remote staff—for secure collaboration from any web-accessible computer.

Images and reports are streamed from the server, and colleagues need no training to view multiple modalities in layouts that suit them. The user-friendly viewer offers a consistent user interface and tool set whether used inside the imaging facility or across the Internet.

eRAD PACS Viewer provides full-fidelity image rendering capabilities; advanced imaging tools, including MPR, image fusion and mask subtraction; and tools for diagnostic interpretation, including web-based report dictation, transcription and speech recognition. Multiple users collaborate through a bi-directional session in which they interactively view and manipulate the same data. Preserve the presentation state after annotating, sizing and positioning clinically significant images. Insert those key images into the report for a more meaningful end-user experience.  eRAD PACS Viewer provides a common interface and toolset from radiology, clinical, or web-based workstations and CDs distributed to referring physicians.

PACS Image Viewer - Under the Hood

The power and flexibility of the eRAD PACS Viewer is driven by these technology features:
  • Self-Installing Download
    eRAD PACS Viewer is a self-installing, self- updating, Windows-native diagnostic viewer.
  • Consistent Viewer Workspace
    eRAD PACS Image Viewer provides a single viewer for use in diagnostic, clinical, web and referring physician environments. The viewer downloads the user’s personal profile and tool set from the central server and applies it to the user’s current workstation. The familiar user interface reduces training time and increases user acceptance.
  • Integrated Reporting
    Dictate reports or select customized canned reports from within the eRAD PACS Image Viewer, using the embedded, web-based dictation/transcription report editor. Transcription and approval tools are included. Reports can be sent to a RIS or archived with the images.

  • Speech Recognition
    eRAD PACS Image viewer supports embedded speech recognition. Display a dictated report in real-time in the report panel, use speech-driven macros and access your cloud-stored profile from anywhere. The eRAD PACS Image viewer also supports several other commercial speech recognition solutions, seamlessly integrating their feature sets.
  • AVI Video Player
    eRAD PACS Image Viewer converts a real-time multi- frame sequence of images to an AVI video file for true one-to-one playback, especially useful for ultrasounds or MRIs. Select the synchronized frame rate playback speed, or save the AVI file to your workstation.
  • Digital Mammography Tools
    eRAD PACS Image Viewer provides mammography tools which include synchronized panning and zooming, mirrored-image mode, support for CAD (Computer-Aided Detection) objects, BI-RADS® (Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System) support in reports, mammography-specific hanging protocols and hanging protocol sets.
