Successful Implementation of a Local Image Repository

The challenge was to create a solution that could be portable, scalable, configurable, and robust. The ideal solution should be constructed in such a way that changes to the business model and workflow can be accommodated with a minimal amount of development time and I believe we achieved that here

SOUND® Technologies the world leader in veterinary digital radiography, ultrasound , imaging software solutions, and imaging education announced the successful implementation of a local image repository for Fasig Tipton's Kentucky auction pavilion, including mobile deployment architecture for use at all Fasig Tipton thoroughbred auction events.

Fasig Tipton is North America's oldest Thoroughbred auction company, formed in 1898. Headquartered in Lexington Kentucky, Fasig-Tipton holds 13 auctions per year at various locations across the country. Fasig Tipton sales have produced numerous household names for racetrack enthusiasts, such as '94 Kentucky Derby winner Go for Gin, '03 champion three-year-old male Funny Cide and 2008 Kentucky Derby & Preakness winner Big Brown to name just a few. With many historical firsts in Thoroughbred auction history, Fasig Tipton was the first sale company to require certificates of health with radiographs for the auctioned athletes.

As the world's foremost veterinary digital radiography and imaging software development company, it was natural that SOUND® was chosen by Fasig Tipton to engineer a custom solution for their unique repository requirements. A static local repository solution with a fixed hardware network can be a challenge, but a transportable network deployable for use at several events from Saratoga to Miami demanded specific and complex requirement specifications on a very tight timeline that only the SOUND® Engineering team could accomplish. "The challenge was to create a solution that could be portable, scalable, configurable, and robust. The ideal solution should be constructed in such a way that changes to the business model and workflow can be accommodated with a minimal amount of development time and I believe we achieved that here," said Robert Powell, Director of Software Development. "Our solution provides unprecedented access, speed and simplicity in image viewing with use of SOUND's new DICOM image viewing software, Reveal."

"I could not be happier with our decision to go with SOUND® and the new Reveal viewer. The whole system worked better than we had hoped and the overall response from the veterinarians was fantastic." Said Max Hodge, Director of Client Services, Fasig Tipton.
