MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rimage Corporation (Nasdaq:RIMG) today announced its high-performance digital publishing solutions are being featured by nearly 40 leading medical technology companies this week at the Radiology Society of North America’s (RSNA) 2006 annual conference at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Hospitals and imaging centers worldwide are recognizing CD/DVD technology as a standard for diagnostic studies, and a cost-effective alternative to film-based output for CT, MRI and other imaging modalities. Rimage’s high-performance CD and DVD publishing solutions are used for automatic production of discs containing patient-specific medical scans for distribution and archiving.
In addition, Rimage systems are tightly integrated with picture archiving and communications systems (PACS). Like networked printers, hospitals arrange the Rimage digital publishing hubs within their facilities for easy access from anywhere in the organization.
“The billions of high-cost, hard-copy medical scans that once were individually stored and shared between hospitals, doctors and their patients, are quickly being replaced by digital images that can be easily archived and immediately accessed,” said Manny Almeida, chief operating officer for Rimage. “As a growing number of PACS installations provide the infrastructure for managing all of this new digital content, Rimage digital publishing has become the medical industry’s standard for outputting content.”
In addition to combining the best in robotics and software, Rimage medical solutions leverage thermal retransfer print technology — the industry’s only truly permanent direct-to-disc printing solution, essential for ensuring the integrity of medical records.
