Nuclear Medicine – Maelor Hospital, Wales, UK

Problem: Maelor Hospital (Wrexham, Wales, UK) decided to install an Insignia PACS for their digital imaging storage and management requirements.  One of their non-DICOM modalities was a Toshiba nuclear medicine system.  They needed to be able to capture the nuclear medicine images, convert to DICOM, and send to PACS.


Solution: TIMS DICOM System.  Maelor Hospital worked with their IT vendor, Steria Ltd., to select the TIMS DICOM System.  With TIMS, they were able to capture from any modality, including their Toshiba nuclear medicine system, and convert to DICOM.  “TIMS fit seamlessly into our workflow, allowing us to convert our nuclear medicine studies to DICOM and view them on our PACS,” said John Collins, Superintendent Radiographer at Maelor Hospital.
