Bill Culton, Diagnostic Solutions Product Manager with Aspyra, explains reasons for developing with Matrox Xenia Series in a recent interview. Read the complete dialog: Matrox Medical Perspectives with Aspyra.
Aspyra's AccessNET PACS is a modular designed PACS solution that ranges from imaging modality viewing stations to multi-facility, enterprise-wide implementations with load balancing, redundancy, and remote backup archives, allowing healthcare facilities to build systems with components that meet their needs. System features include flexible licensing, built-in webserver for image and report access, flexible Storage (Archive) Solutions, user definable Search Lists and Work Lists, a full featured MedVIEW Viewer with intuitive human interface, and built in Dictation and Transcription functions based on common medical communication standards such as DICOM and HL7 that integrates with healthcare systems, protecting investments and streamlining workflow.
"Matrox is pleased to partner with Aspyra to ensure the Matrox Xenia PRO was validated for use with their PACS product line" says George Rigas, Business Development Manager for medical imaging, Matrox Graphics Inc. "Our objective is to provide medical imaging professionals pristine image quality, performance, and efficient workflow for reading of large study data sets and resolution size."
Matrox Xenia is the first native PCI Express single-slot board with all-digital, triple-monitor output and the flexibility to drive practically any known display configuration. Xenia Series supports resolutions from under 1MP up to 8MP, with up to 1GB of on-board memory, and features new technology to ensure optimum display calibration (via Matrox DLC™ and 8/10/13-bit gamma LUTs).
"As we introduce the capability to read the ever larger data sets and higher resolutions of DICOM studies on our general workstation viewer, the use of the Matrox Xenia Series will allow the user to window and level large image data quickly and smoothly on high resolution monitors thus improving their efficiency and accuracy," stated Bill Culton, Aspyra's Diagnostic Solutions Product Manager.
Xenia Series is a flexible and expandable solution, that provides medical imaging developers and integrators looking for leading edge technology the development potential for increasing hardware-accelerated performance via hardware LUTs, multiple hardware window IDs, and additional hardware features.
