The ImageCap System is a low cost alternative to expensive large scale DICOM/PACS systems. The ImageCap acquires live video clips and still frames from an ultrasound system and subsequently stores the completed studies in a searchable database. It easily integrates with existing EMR systems and provides a choice between using a DICOM format or an alternative PC friendly format. The system incorporates integrated encryption for HIPAA compliance when transferring or remotely viewing studies. The system is a seamless and simple method to replace paper and film and to archive patient files and images digitally.
