The Electronic Endpoint Adjudication Platform eAdjudication® Improves DICOM Images Central Reading and Adjudication With DICOM/PACS Integration
BASEL, Switzerland - September 14, 2021 - ( Newswire.com )
Ethical GmbH, a Swiss company providing personalized software solutions for clinical research, has incorporated a new DICOM / PACS image solution to their electronic adjudication management system eAdjudication® that facilitates the redaction of metadata and simplifies the access and review of DICOM images by Expert Committees.
For the eAdjudication® DICOM / PACS extension, Ethical has chosen the lightweight Orthanc DICOM server, which is widely used by hospitals for sharing medical images and, as such, is a proven reliable technology. Customers are given the option to import DICOM images into eAdjudication® either automatically or manually. Similarly, image metadata can be redacted either automatically during the import according to pre-defined criteria or manually.
The new eAdjudication® extension is fitted with a convenient, easily accessible DICOM viewer that offers a full range of tools for visualizing and managing the images. If preferred, however, eAdjudication® can integrate with other PACS or DICOM viewers.
″ Ethical is pleased to have launched its eAdjudication® DICOM / PACS extension so that current and future customers are better equipped to conduct clinical endpoint adjudication, especially as image review has become an important component of clinical trials, ” says Mimmo Garibbo, CEO of Ethical GmbH.
About the DICOM Standard
In recent years, DICOM has become the de facto standard for digital communication and storage of medical images. An important advantage of DICOM lies in the ability to separate the pixel-based image from the associated metadata, making anonymization or encryption of identifiers for data privacy compliance an easy process.
