San Luis Obispo, CA, United States, 2009/10/20 - Vetel InSight™ gives veterinarians unmatched digital images, convenience and productivity.
Vetel Diagnostics, a digital radiography company founded in San Luis Obispo by practicing veterinarian James K. Waldsmith, DVM, has launched Vetel InSight™ DICOM 3.0 compliant software that produces unsurpassed quality images and increased efficiency.
InSight™ software’s lossless image processing allows exact file re-creation from the original data. This results in unequaled image quality and increases a Veterinarian’s accuracy and speed in diagnosing and treating patients. “We’re redefining image quality in veterinary medicine by state-of-the-art software, bundled with the industry’s best detector panels” explains Dr. Waldsmith.
When developing the Vetel InSight™ software, Dr. Waldsmith not only focused on top quality images, but also on functions that increase convenience and efficiency. One InSight™ feature allows Veterinarians to send images straight from the program via direct access to an email address book; another allows the user to customize patient records, creating a patient database for files, images, and patient information. Direct access to records bypasses the need to exit the program and search in multiple locations.
Unlike other veterinary digital radiography software, Vetel InSight™ gives patient representation that is both species specific--- from equine to companion animal--- and anatomically detailed allowing selection of the skull, foot, etc. Each image is presented in a species-specific algorithm, not a human adaptation. In addition, the multi-planar bone density analysis allows a comparison of up to four areas at one time.
Voice prompting, which guides the veterinarian in the proper sequencing of image taking is another time saving convenience. Dr. Waldsmith said, “This feature is invaluable when I’m down on my knees underneath a horse. I don’t have to waste time by returning to the monitor to see what my next shot is.”
The software fully supports all current DICOM veterinary standards and comes preconfigured to interface with a variety of Flat Panel digital radiography systems including the new Empower 1417™ Wireless panel. Vetel InSight™ offers seamless integration with Practice Management Software, PACS, and remote archival services. Exclusive monitor calibration capabilities ensure a legal read upon image presentation.
In addition to over 25 years in private practice, Dr. Waldsmith served as an attending veterinarian and imaging specialist at the 1996 Olympic games and a consultant on thermal imaging to wild and marine mammal organizations such as Dolphin Quest, Busch Gardens and Sea World; his expertise in diagnostic imaging modalities has been widely recognized. He also owns the Edna Valley Veterinary Medical Center in San Luis Obispo, CA.
The Vetel InSight™ software is the latest addition to Vetel Diagnostics’ product line, which includes digital radiography systems for equine and companion animals, as well as thermal imaging products. Vetel Diagnostics offers the largest variety of state-of-the-art products and 24-hour support to veterinarians.
