Medical Imaging Centers

Go Paperless and Get Connected with MiPACS

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

The MiPACS Storage Server product is a PACS imaging archive solution and is the heart of an imaging center's digital imaging network. With the scalability, reliability, and standards-compliance one would expect in an enterprise-level PACS, MiPACS offers medical imaging centers the functionality needed at a price that fits in any budget.

Give Referring Physicians Access to Images Over the Internet

The MiPACS Web Viewer provides access to medical images inside and outside of the office. Rather than sending films, printouts of digital studies, or a CD to a referring physician, make digital images securely available online—immediately. With complete control patient record access, referring physicians can only access his/her patients' records.

The MiPACS Web Viewer includes all of the tools expected in 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 a single clinic or used to centralize an entire network of imaging centers and clinics. The MiPACS Storage Server provides several add-ons that make the imaging workflow easier in a multi-clinic environment.

The MiPACS Router automates routing of imaging studies to servers at any other clinics—even directly to an on-call radiologist's workstation. The rules that dictate how images are routed to their destination(s) are completely customizable and can be based on any DICOM tag data.

The MiPACS Image Forwarding add-on to MiPACS Storage Server synchronizes multiple clinics to a central imaging archive. Mini MiPACS servers at each clinic provide a local cache of images, while older images and images captured at other clinics are available through the link to the MiPACS central imaging archive.

The MiPACS Gateway add-on to the MiPACS Storage Server relays DICOM query/retrieve requests to any number of other PACS servers. It enables users to search for a patient's record once and receive results from servers at multiple locations.
