Workflow-Enhancing Program from Connect Imaging
Connect Imaging Inc (Honolulu) recently launched StudyManager, a program that interfaces between imaging modalities and PACS solutions to manage the order of imaging studies.

StudyManager also allows image studies to be rearranged when the imaging modality sends the images to a PACS in the wrong order. The program works in conjunction with most PACS and automatically performs DICOM modality work-list queries for all studies.

Also, the CCFL flickers at 40,000 times per second compared with the 50 times per second of conventional bulbs. The Medicanvas hangs on a wall, and its external power supply uses 100?250 AC volts input and 12.5 DC volts to operate.
