Solutions. Capturing Medical Images with an Internal DVI2PCIe Frame Grabber

Storing of physical documents including images has been a problem in medicine. Resulting from recent advances in imaging technology many clinicians create images during the diagnostic process. They are obliged to retain this data for many years according to regulatory requirements. Previously it was pretty hard for the health centres and clinics to cope with a great number of patient's records.

Due to rapidly evolving technologies, storing and accessing multiple data is much easier now. Healthcare organizations worldwide are looking for effective ways to capture, store and share medical imaging data in the care and treatment of patients. Fast delivery of this information in many cases helps to accurately diagnose their condition and begin a plan for treatment.

Each organization performing medical imaging needs a reliable system for acquiring and archiving patient medical images. This material should be stored in a digital format on computer systems. Physicians have access to both current and previous patients’ studies, examine and interpret them. Healthcare providers, imaging clinics and hospitals benefit from the grabbing solutions that capture data from imaging facilities, provide fast access to this content and enable remote collaboration. All imagery ranging from x-rays to cardiology is now stored on computers and servers and transmitted to any part of the world.

For these purposes one of our customers, uses computer-based systems with internal DVI2PCIe frame grabbers for greater operational efficiency. In this medical centre the Epiphan’s solution helps to acquire data from MRI, CT and mammography systems through the VGA connectors, record them on an internal HDD. Besides, the images can be broadcast over the network enabling remote diagnostics. Long term medical archiving depends only on the computer’s storage capacity and ensures indexing, preserving and accessibility of the data. Cross-facility image sharing provides real-time collaboration.

This approach allows for secure, reliable, and scalable storage and backup of great volumes of medical data. It aligns IT investments to match both future and current needs. Retrieval and transfer of images can be performed quickly and easily. An internal professional video capture card is installed in the computer’s PCIe slot.  It connects to medical imaging equipment through its VGA output and captures images with resolution up to 1920x1200 in diagnostic quality. Using free DVI2PCIe software one can print images or broadcast them over Internet/LAN. This functionality can be of great use to specialists performing remote diagnostics and willing to hold consultations with their colleagues worldwide.
