Foresight Imaging Extends the Market for TIMS

(Lowell, MA – August 17, 2005) Foresight Imaging introduces significant new features to extend the use of TIMS beyond traditional analog-to-DICOM conversion. New features in this release include:

  • TIMS Consultant: real-time teleradiology
  • DICOM query/retrieve
  • Batch/schedule DICOM send
  • One-click DICOM send
  • Configurable toolbar
  • Progressive DICOM send
  • DICOM print improvements
  • Multi-study open

These new capabilities have all been a direct result of customer requests over the last several months. They have been extensively beta tested at several TIMS sites around the world. “We are very excited about the new TIMS software release. The TIMS Consultant helps us to connect our hospital with remote radiologists in Wales. This real-time teleradiology capability has allowed us to process patient procedures more quickly, enabling our department to be more efficient. With DICOM query/retrieve, our physicians can view previous procedures right at the point of care without delay,” said Neil Passam, senior radiographer at Bronglais General Hospital in Wales, United Kingdom.

About TIMS, the PACS Connectivity Solution

The TIMS DICOM System is a fully configured workstation that solves a common problem in hospitals today: their DICOM PACS systems are unable to communicate with their analog medical devices. With the TIMS simple, easy-to-use interface, hospitals can quickly and easily convert their studies to DICOM and have them available for viewing and storage on their PACS systems. Each TIMS system is a DICOM gateway allowing it to receive as well as send DICOM studies. TIMS is multi-modality and can acquire from all analog video and DICOM modalities including ultrasound, CT, MR, endoscopy, angiography, and more. Once the images or video streams are acquired and converted to DICOM, they are instantly available for viewing, simple image processing, DICOM send, DICOM print, PostScript print, or CD/DVD burning. A free DICOM viewer is available and can be automatically written to each disc. A small footprint computer running Windows XP Professional powers the TIMS DICOM System. One year of service and maintenance is included with each TIMS purchase.
