dicomPACSRDX-RX-ray Acquisition Softwareacquisition softwarefor static and dynamic X-ray imagesfor small medical practices & large hospital departments dicomPACS DX-R is a professional acquisition software for X-ray images fromflat panel systems (DR) and CR units (computed radiography with imaging plates)by any origin. In addition, the software controls X-ray generators and X-ray units ofvarious manufacturers, providing a smooth and systematic workflow. A simple and userfriendly GUI (graphical user interface) operated by touchscreen or mousecompletes the system. The professional dicomPACS DX-R image processing can be adapted to individual users‘needs and offers outstanding image quality. It has been specially developed to enable organspecific optimisation, guaranteeing the highest quality X-ray images.Many helpful integrated functions such as the radiographic positioning guide and intuitiveoperation greatly simplify daily routine tasks. In addition, dicomPACS DX-R allows integration with existing patient management systems. The integrated full dicomPACS viewer even enables the user to diagnose X-rayimages within the acquisition software. Therefore, the system can also be applied as fullyfledged diagnostic workstation with the option to upgrade to a PACS (Picture Archivingand Communication System).dicomPACS DX-R forms the core of a digital X-ray unit, whether it is a retrofit systemto upgrade existing X-ray units, a complete new unit including generator control,or a portable suitcase solution for mobile X-ray generators.Further information about acquisitionsoftware is available here:

The user has the choice to take the next image with either the flat panelor the integrated CR system. This flexibility also provides an excellent emergencyconcept in case of a defective flat panel.AEC (Automatic Exposure Control) and ARP (Anatomical Programmed Radiography)allow the user to automatically adjust all X-ray options for each projection with anoption to subsequently edit the image manually.Integration of dose area product meters (DAP) – the readings aresaved directly to the relevant imageElectronic X-ray logStatic DRX-ray detectorradiologyCR systemThe software allows simultaneous control of a CR systemand one or more X-ray detectors as standard.09For more detailed informationplease see: www.or-technology.comDynamic DRX-ray detectorNetwork

Cognition Optimised Processing(COP)COP contains all calculation steps foran optimal image presentation, whichthe X-ray image passes through directlyafter its creation. Image contents areautomatically analyzed and thecalculation steps intelligently adapted.Thus, no post-processing of the imagesis necessary.12
