Telemis extends PACS capabilities with new mammographic module and enhanced comparative monitoring 
Version 4.8 of image archiving and transmission platform combines new tools for radiologists with advanced features and mobile connectivity 
Louvain-la-Neuve, (Belgium), 10. November 2016 – Telemis, the medical imaging, archiving and transmission specialist, has launched the next generation of its PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) software. Version 4.8 of the Telemis-Medical archiving software and image transmission platform features improved diagnostic mammography and comparison functionality alongside powerful visualization capabilities for users of mobile devices. The new version also further simplifies sharing of medical imaging data between medical practitioners and within and between medical facilities.
Telemis-Medical PACS 4.8 offers new tools to radiologists in specialized areas such as breast imaging as well as facilitating improved comparative monitoring of images obtained from examinations conducted by other radiological disciplines. The mammographic diagnosis module has been completely revised to enable the intelligent and efficient management of digital tomosynthesis images and to improve the management of multi-modal display data.  
The new version of the software can calculate the doubling time according to the RECIST analysis criteria and delivers instant fusion of image data obtained from multi-modal examinations.  A re-designed viewing and treatment tool for DICOM-RT images will benefit radiation therapists by supporting collaboration and discussion across multiple disciplines. Telemis-Medical PACS 4.8 also now offers native support for PDF DICOM files.
In developing the latest version of its software, Telemis has continued its focus on communication and mobility. Tablet users have access to the full power of visualization applications to assess imaging information from multiple locations. This includes secure transfer of images to and from external parties, including home doctors. 
Telemis Group CEO, Stephane Ketelaer, states: β€œIn this new release we combine advances in specialist areas with the ability to transfer images to tools outside of the PACS environment, while facilitating greater communication between specialists. Using the latest version, health care professionals can go beyond simply transmitting images to provide full medical contexts using secure communications that do not compromise patient confidentiality.”
Telemis-Medical PACS version 4.8 will be launched at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA) being held in Chicago from 27th November to 2nd December 2016. As in previous years, Telemis will use the RSNA event to present its latest prototypes and cutting-edge technologies. Visitors can share their views with Telemis developers and engineers, discuss the benefits of the various concepts presented during the show, and vote for their favourite technology prototypes. The concepts that receive the most votes at the show are likely to be incorporated into future versions of Telemis-Medical PACS.
