Connecting Medical Devices to the World of DICOM

In the course of workflow optimization and increased networking in healthcare, the DICOM standard is finding its way into new fields of application. Mainly known from radiology so far, digital imaging and DICOM communication is spreading into e.g. endoscopy, microscopy, ophthal-mology, or dermatology. Innovative manufacturers of medical devices are now facing the challenge of providing interfaces needed for DICOM communication to these devices. This challenge cannot be met without specific expertise. softgate’s solution DICOMconnect permits medical devices a comfortable connection to the world of DICOM.Manufacturers thus spare the familiarization with the complex DICOM standards as well as a time-consuming development of their own interface solution.
softgate’s DICOM library DICOMconnect expands imaging software systems by a DICOM interface. The focus is in user-friendliness and easy integration. In contrast to a usual DICOM toolkit the developer will not need in-depth DICOM knowledge to use DICOMconnect. Being a universal interface solution, DICOMconnect will work platform independent using Windows, Linux, or Mac.

DICOMconnect at a glance:

  • Retrieval of patient data or planned medical examinations per DICOM work list
  • Availability of image data, resulting from e.g. an initial examination or a pre-op appointment, by means of a DICOM archive
  • Creating or forwarding DICOM images or DICOM videos from raw data
  • Writing or reading DICOM data from data storage mediums
  • ISO EN 14971 & 62304 conformity
  • Printing of DICOM images
  • Support and Consulting

medigate – software for medical devices

Integration ensures advantage
Imagine a software platform for development of medical devices in imaging and other techniques. Via DICOM Worklist the platform digitally receives administrative data to set up an examination. (Image-) data, acquired during the examination, are optimized, linked to the patient’s da-ta and displayed on the device to be used in diagnosis and treatment. Relevant data of previous examinations or treatments can be retrieved directly from the electronic health record (EHR) to the medical device, where they are processed and displayed. Finally the newly acquired data are passed to the EHR and archived.
medigate was developed dedicatedly to be used in medical devices, according to the applicable standards (ISO 13485, ISO 62304, ISO 14971). Since medigate is composed of modules each of its components can be used according to your demand. The field of application covers different areas of medical imaging such as endoscopy, dentistry, ophthalmology, microscopy, ultrasound or radiology.

Digital Image Processing
The imaging pipeline receives and processes digital images:

  • Processing of raw images with a special focus on correction of distortions, lighting and defective pixels as well as a clinical relevant image enhancement.
  • Use of newest technologies: Super-resolution extracts a high resolution image from a series of low resolution images.
  • Your advantage: Optimal diagnosis based on excellent image quality.
Data- & Workflow- Handling
The imaging platform manages digital image data:

  • Management including relevant meta information and display properties.
  • Preparation of data to be displayed on the examination system.
  • A separate multi planar reformation (MPR) module implements the reconstruction of cross-sectional images from a MR or CT data set.
  • Your advantage: All medical data relevant to the healthcare professio-nals is available at a glance directly at the device.
Easy DICOM integration
DICOMconnect realizes the data transfer between medical systems:

  • Patient’s data and scheduled examinations are queried via DICOM Worklist from a HIS or image data from preliminary examinations are received from a DICOM archive.
  • Generated image- and meta-data are wrapped as a DICOM-conformant message and sent to a DICOM archive for long-term archiving
  • Your advantage: Seamless integration into the medical workflows and EHR.

GDT Bridge – Connecting Medical Systems

Unified interface between medical devices and medical information systems

A lot of vendors offer medical devices. These devices have interfaces in order to communicate with other medical software systems. This communication can be one- or bidirectional. It isused for transmission of patient-demographic data from one information system to a device or for transmission of measured values from device to a medical information system.
The challenge is: Nearly all medical information systems offer a GDT interface, but there are a lot of medical devices having different or vendor-specific interfaces. The solution: The GDT Bridge connects medical devices to information systems just by simple configuration and avoids expensive software development.

  • Simple connection of medical devices to medical information systems, optometrist’s point-of-sale software, and others
  • Only one single GDT interface instead of different device dependent interfaces
  • Supported protocols: serial, XML, DICOM
  • Vendor specific protocols will be converted to GDT (3.0 & 2.1)
  • GDT output to network or file in order to connect medical information systems, optometrist’s point-of-sale software, and others
  • Bidirectional communication
  • Available for Windows and Linux operating system
  • Supports DICOM
