September 24, 2013, Shirley, NY – Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of DICOM Software for the Atomlab 960 Thyroid Uptake System.

The new optional DICOM Software program incorporates the Atomlab 960 Thyroid Uptake System with hospital management systems, streamlining workflows and improving communication.  The DICOM Software program retrieves patient information from the work list and uploads the patient results, without exiting out of the clinical software, increasing staff productivity and efficiency.  DICOM allows the thyroid uptake reports to be transferred, stored and queried/retrieved throughout a facility.  Physicians can view both images and uptake reports simultaneously.

The Atomlab 960, introduced in March 2013, is an advanced spectrum analysis instrument designed for diverse nuclear medicine applications which boasts a count rate of 150,000 cps and is engineered for mobility, durability and operational efficiency.  The combination of a new unique positioning LED and distance measurement rod allows for easy and reproducible patient positioning and uptake measurements during nuclear imaging.

Thyroid uptake studies, manual MCA program, wipe tests, bioassay, and other user-defined tasks are accomplished with speed and precision using this fully integrated computer-controlled instrument and its comprehensive selection of application software.

The system’s multi-channel analyzer has 1024 channels, with individual MCA’s for the probe and optional well counter. The Atomlab 960 handles clinical tests, safety compliance tasks, and system administration procedures quickly and accurately. It automatically performs calculations, stores patient information and test results, and outputs clear concise reports.  User-defined uptake protocols can be initiated.

At Biodex, our commitment to quality is inherent in every product we develop.  The Atomlab 960 and DICOM Software program are engineered with the highest attention to detail and precision.   Automated systems and administrative functions streamline and simplify the QC process to allow for optimal efficiency.  Intuitive programs and Quality Assurance applications follow conventional nuclear medicine procedures, yet can be customized to meet specific requirements.  Biodex offers a one-on-one applications training webinar at no charge.
