The TIMS DICOM System has been shipping for over two years and has hundreds of installations worldwide.  These new product enhancements have been a direct result of feedback and suggestions from our customer base.  Franklin Square Hospital Center in Baltimore, Maryland, a MedStar Health Hospital, required the display of the Requested Procedure Description in the DICOM Modality Work List query.  This feature allows the proper patient study to be more easily selected from the work list.  “The people at TIMS have been very supportive of our needs.  They listened to our requests for enhancement and delivered for us.  As a result, our non-DICOM to DICOM conversion workflow is running more smoothly,” said Lester Lepley, Manager of Imaging Technology for MedStar Health.

About TIMS, the PACS Connectivity Solution

Hospitals and imaging clinics around the world need to convert their non-DICOM medical modalities to DICOM.  Upgrading or replacing these modalities is too expensive, often costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.  PACS is a large enough expense in and of itself.  Replacing all of the non-DICOM devices for PACS connectivity purposes is simply not cost-effective.  The solution is the TIMS DICOM System.  TIMS converts any non-DICOM medical modality to DICOM.  The resulting digital study can be sent to PACS, recorded to CD/DVD/USB, and printed to film or paper.  TIMS is available for a small fraction of the cost of a modality upgrade.  Yes, TIMS can convert ANY medical modality to DICOM.  This includes ultrasound, fluoroscopy, endoscopy, motion X-ray, angiography, nuclear medicine, MR, CT, and much more.  TIMS captures both static images and streaming video at 30 frames per second.  TIMS even converts to DICOM the JPG, BMP, and AVI images generated in pathology, dermatology, and ophthalmology applications.
