Tech Workstation provides the functions that the technologists find most useful when working with studies in a PACS. Such functions include receiving studies from modalities, printing, sending via DICOM protocol, or burning to CD. In addition, because of the specific software design of the user interface of the program, technologists can learn very quickly how to use the programs. All the commonly used functions are shown as buttons in a toolbar that is always shown on the left side of the screen, so clinical personnel can learn to use the software with minimal training.
Tech Workstation stores studies received from MODALITIES or retrieved from PACS in a local database. Studies can then be viewed, modified, printed, and sent to other DICOM SCP devices. As an additional feature, the minimum required patient demographic information in the DICOM header can be specified before the study is allowed to be sent.
