RICOH DICOM Solution

Affordable, eco-friendly medical images

Diagnostic Imaging Market

Many hospitals, clinics and radiology centers have adopted new digital medical imaging technologies, PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems) and VNA (Vendor Neutral Archive) systems for diagnostics through monitors or workstations; however there still remains a need to print images on radiographic films to provide a study copy to the patients. Digital modalities such as CT scan, MRI, ultrasound and digital radiology usually print medical images on radiographic film, which is more expensive to acquire, store and ship. In addition, radiographic film uses expensive laser film printers embedded with the DICOM protocol.


As healthcare institutions seek to reduce their daily operational costs, solutions such as RICOH Dicom offer affordable yet advanced applications.

DICOM is the primary international standard protocol to transmit, store, retrieve, print, process and display medical imaging information.


Communication Protocol

 

It is an application protocol that uses TCP / IP                              for communication between systems.

DICOM Files

 

DICOM files can be exchanged between two entities that are capable of receiving images and patient data on the DICOM format.

 
 
 

Challenges of Radiology Departments

 
Healthcare dicom solution

Within the digital imaging market, radiology departments have particular challenges related to handling diagnostic digital images, some of them being:

  • Image quality
  • Technology expense
  • Furnishing of hard copy to patients and referring physicians
  • Record-keeping period
  • Radiographic films prints costs
 
 

RICOH DICOM Solution

 
The RICOH DICOM solution is revolutionary in the practice of radiology because it makes possible the affordable printing of advanced medical imaging applications throughout different stages of the patient care process, from the emergency area service to a routine testing, all in a RICOH printer.
 
The replication includes the design (1x1, 1x2, 2x1, 2x2, 2x3, etc.), edge color, film orientation, equipment boxes, and empty image densities which results in users having the possibility of printing an image of high quality on plain paper at a much lower cost.
