This reality is closer than you think.

More Use Cases for AR

We’re strong believers in Augmented Reality, or AR for short. The software we offer at DICOM Director, like Intravision XR, is infused with this technology because we’ve observed how it improves patient outcomes. Intravision XR allows doctors to view anatomical structures in complete detail. This detail includes the spatial relationships between whole organs themselves and…

It’s Time To Ditch The Disk in Radiology #ditchthedisk

Medical imaging is critical for the detection and evaluation of cancer and other diseases. Routine screenings can reveal cancers or other afflictions, even when they not directly tested for. Using imaging, Radiologists must be able to assess disease path overtime to supply the best patient care.    Radiology and imaging have made leaps into the future by implementing groundbreaking methods of capturing images. Yet, throughout all this innovation, the actual scan transfer of patient…
