Medical Imaging Centers

Go Paperless and Get Connected with MiPACS

Medicor Imaging can help medical imaging centers and clinics make the paperless transition, and help already-digital clinics get connected with MiPACS, a cost effective, modular PACS solution. The MiPACS product line offers DICOM-compliant PACS components which can work with any type of digital imaging clinic—regardless of size or number of locations.

MiPACS Storage Server is a PACS imaging archive that can be the heart of an imaging center's digital imaging network. With the scalability, reliability, and standards-compliance you'd expect in an enterprise-level PACS, MiPACS offers medical imaging centers the functionality they need at a price they can afford.

Give Referring Doctors Access to Images over the Internet

MiPACS Web Viewer can be your medical image viewer inside or outside of the office. Rather than sending analog films, printouts of digital studies, or a CD to a referring doctor, you can make your images available online—immediately. You can control which patients each user has access to, so referring doctors only get access to their patients' records.

MiPACS Web Viewer features all the tools you'd expect from a medical image viewer—window and level controls, zoom, magnify, rotate, invert, ROI calculations (mean, median, STDV), cine controls, annotations, measurements, and more—all from within a web browser. Series can be compared side by side, and viewed in a user-definable X by Y series view or in Stack mode.

Multi-Clinic Capability

MiPACS can be used in just a single clinic, or it can be used to centralize your entire network of imaging centers or clinics. MiPACS Storage Server offers several add-ons to make the imaging workflow easier in a multi-clinic environment.

MiPACS Router can be used to automate the routing of imaging studies to a server at any other clinic—even directly to an on-call radiologist's workstation. The rules that decide how images are routed to their destination(s) are completely customizable, and can be based on any DICOM tag data.

MiPACS Image Forwarding is an add-on to MiPACS Storage Server that can synchronize multiple clinics to a central imaging archive. Mini MiPACS servers at each clinic provide that clinic with a cache of images, while older images or images that were captured at other clinics are available through a link to the MiPACS central imaging archive.

MiPACS Gateway is an add-on to MiPACS Storage Server that is a DICOM query/retrieve gateway that relays your request to any number of other PACS Servers. It allows you to search for a patient's record once, and receive results from servers at multiple locations.
