TraumaCad enables orthopedic surgeons to utilize digital images, tools and templates for planning a full range of orthopedic surgeries, providing an easier and more accurate alternative to traditional preoperative planning using hard copy film and overlays. TraumaCad displays PACS images from a full range of modalities. It enables preoperative plans to be archived with patient files and viewed in the operating room.
A second-generation, fully Web-driven PACS, IntegradWeb employs server-centric, open architecture to deliver a consistent user-friendly working environment to any Internet-enabled PC. Referring physicians and other authorized users access the same image archive, databases and toolsets wherever they are located. Functionality can be customized for individual users and user groups. IntegradWeb leads the industry with its advanced 3D image processing and analysis functionalityÂand now its orthopedic surgical planning tools--which are all fully integrated into the primary reading environment.
ÂOrthocrat and Dynamic Imaging collaborated to design and implement the optimal solution for Stony BrookÂs needs,Â said Tony Indelicato, Informatics Manager, Department of Radiology, Stony Brook University Hospital. ÂThey delivered a single filmless imaging and planning tool that will enable our orthopedists to truly develop their strategies before entering the surgical suite. We are extremely impressed with the close working relationship between the two companies and functionality of both products.Â
ÂThe integration between the IntegradWeb and TraumaCad offers orthopedic surgeons unprecedented functionality in terms of speed, versatility, access and general workflow. With this system orthopaedic surgeons can plan procedures from any location, have instant access to clinical data anywhere in the world and then store their work in a central archive for later retrieval in the operating room. We believe the collaboration of our two companies will lead to the next step of Web-enabled sub-specialty applications,Â says Zeev Glozman, CEO and a founder of Orthocrat.
ÂIntegradWeb PACS has been installed at Stony Brook for over six months for use within radiology and for hospital-wide image access. Stony BrookÂs choice of our new partner Orthocrat to provide an orthopedic solution illustrates the strength of our partnership with the nationally-recognized teaching institution and testifies to their satisfaction with IntegradWeb, Â said Alex Jurovitsky, CEO of Dynamic Imaging, Inc. ÂWe selected Orthocrat as our orthopedic partner after a careful review of competing solutions and believe that together we offer a market-leading integrated solution for a full range of imaging needs. Stony Brook has always had been an innovator in the imaging field, and we are delighted that the hospital will be our first joint PACS-orthopedic installation.Â
Dynamic Imaging will offer TraumaCad as a seamlessly integrated orthopedic component of its IntegradWeb PACS to both new and existing installations.
"TraumaCAD and IntegradWeb will enable our orthopedists to plan their surgeries with a high degree of confidence,Â adds Indelicato. ÂI believe this will have an impact on the overall quality of patient care. The intuitive design made going filmless in orthopedics surprisingly easy.Â
