eFilm Scan is an application designed to scan conventional medical films using third-party digitizers. With eFilm Scan, images can be ordered, viewed and imported as DICOM studies with relevant patient information directly into your PACS or burned directly onto a CD or DVD.
As institutions progress into filmless environments, they face the challenge of managing hardcopy x-ray films. When scanned as a single image, multi-slice modality films are of questionable practical and even diagnostic or clinical value. The typical tiled film format is not well suited to electronic review.
Furthermore, the static nature of this format negates any advantage attained from the threedimensional CT and MRI images. eFilm Scan expands the utility of this data by automatically separating each image slice into a single image.
Key benefits of eFilm Scan are as below:
Simplifies the transition from film to filmless
Provides an efficient way to digitize relevant prior studies
Easy to use, even for radiology novices
Cost-effective way to begin digitization of studies
Integrated with PACS via DICOM Modality Worklist
