TIMS Medical Releases TIMS Consultant 2.0

(Chicago, IL – November 26, 2017) The TIMS Medical division of Foresight Imaging announces the release of TIMS Consultant 2.0 which provides a powerful upgrade of the TIMS Consultant platform for real-time video and audio collaboration on any surgery or diagnostic imaging procedure. TIMS Consultant 2.0 is being shown in TIMS Medical booth 6638 at the RSNA conference in Chicago starting on Sunday November 26.

Multiple high resolution video sources can be streamed in real-time over networks (LAN, VPN, internet, mobile) to support all operating rooms and diagnostic imaging suites at a hospital. This upgrade provides a new, HTML5-based thin client for use with internet browsers on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices including tablets & mobile phones. With this new thin client, there is nothing ever to install on the client computers and mobile devices. Included with this upgrade are workflow models for open rooms and closed rooms, as well as “knocking” and “do not disturb” functions. One-time invites are supported for external users. A new interactive, graphical telestration model is introduced including LivePoint™ for real-time emphasis, as well as circles, arrows, line segments, and free-hand drawing, all with auto-fade functionality. All transmissions are SSL encrypted and user logins are controlled via Active Directory. Audio conferencing and interactive chat is provided for all participants. All users can pause, rewind, zoom, and scrub the video independently and then instantly return to the live session. Multiple room installations are supported, and adding a video channel is plug and play.

With TIMS Consultant, radiologists can be more productive and patient-centric by participating in any radiology procedure as it happens without ever leaving the reading room. Real-time video and audio is streamed directly to the desktop computer, laptop, or mobile device. Surgeons, interventional radiologists, cardiologists, and other specialists can collaborate on cases in real-time from their offices, homes, other hospitals, or even on the go.
