Special Functions for Digital X-Ray Imaging
Digital x-ray images have the advantage that exact measurements can be taken at the monitor and the image quality can be improved by a number of manipulations. dicomPACS®vet now offer some special functions.
It serves to theoretically optimize the existing slope of the tibial plateau in domestic dogs.
The TTA measuring technique is used to apply the translated length measurements at the tuberositas tibiae in dogs.
This measuring tool serves to determine the displacement of the femoral head from the joint socket of the hip joint in dogs.
The MMP (Modified Maquet Procedure) is a method of measurement for dogs with a cruciate ligament disorder, in which the distance for the placement of the MMP Wedge is determined.
dicomPACS®vet provides a special tool to guarantee very fast and reliable determination of the Noberg angle, including documentation. One click suffices to insert all relevant lines and angles into the image, where they can be positioned as required.
This annotation is a simple and reliable method to determine the size of the heart. It has been designed specifically for dogs and cats. The height and width of the heart are put into relation to the individual animal’s vertebral body width. Therefore, racial distinctions are brought to bear on the examination results.
This module allows the user to plan and document an operation. After activating this function, the active image is displayed in its original film-identical size.
The prosthesis template is displayed in the image as an annotation, or the existing prosthesis template films are overlaid on the monitor.
dicomPACS®vet includes all the necessary tools for the professional diagnostic evaluation of slices, such as CT or MRI. Functions like hanging protocols, cine loop, manual scrolling through series, and the visualization of current and delimiting outlines allow the user to work fast and professionally.
The MRI (Multi-Planar Reconstruction) and MIP (Maximum Intensity Projection) functions offer the doctor increased options.
