ImageBank is a DICOM based, image archive and remote image access solution designed
to provide veterinarians with a cost effective way to outsource their digital imaging
storage needs. By creating an off site DICOM image archive, ImageBank eliminates
the need for large on-site PACS storage, archiving, and ongoing IT support. Features
- OFFSITE IMAGE BACKUP: Veterinarians must understand that all computers will eventually
fail and take measures to backup their data to comply with state retention requirements
for medical images.
- ONLINE ACCESS TO YOUR IMAGES: After images are sent to DVMinsight ImageBank they
are immediately available online on any computer with internet access. Many hospitals
use this functionality to refer cases to a local referral hospital, share cases
with other veterinarians, allow pet owners to see their images, or to distribute
images around their hospital.
- UNIQUE IMAGE SHARING CAPABILITY: Once your images are stored in DVMinsight ImageBank,
you can “share” your cases with other veterinarians, specialists, or pet owners.
With ImageBank you will no longer need to burn CD’s or worry if your RDVM or specialty
hospital received your images. They will become part of your online community and
only have access to the cases you share with them.
- TELERADIOLOGY CONSULTATIONS: With ImageBank, you also have access to expert teleradiology
consultations from a team of experienced board certified ACVR diplomate. There
are no long term contracts or commitments. Additionally, storage and online access
is free for cases that are referred to the DVMinsight teleradiology service for
- VENDOR INDEPENDENT DICOM STORAGE SOLUTION: Many veterinarians are confused about
the importance of how a vendor stores images in a PACS. Ideally, veterinarians should
avoid digital vendors who store studies in a proprietary manner. Unfortunately,
we do not live in an ideal world and many digital vendors do store images in a proprietary
manner. Failure to duplicate your data in a vendor independent format means that
you will “marry” the vendor for the life of your practice. ImageBank stores images
in a vendor independent DICOM format that frees you from any worry about proprietary
vendor storage methods. Ultimately, this may decrease the cost of integration
with other information systems, and provides more options for disaster recovery
and business continuance. Image backup is one area that you should definitely choose
a “3rd” party solution.
- SUPERIOR COST SAVINGS: Backing up your data can be expensive. Some vendors sell
RAID servers that can cost as much as $30,000. Other online storage options can
cost up to $6,000 per year regardless of how much storage you actually use. With
DVMinsight ImageBank you pay a one time fee per study with no additional maintenance
- VETERINARY EXPERIENCE: At DVMinsight we are veterinarians and only work with veterinarians.
We have experience with nearly all of the veterinary digital radiography vendors.
This experience provides us with a firm understanding of the veterinary landscape
and how each vendor’s digital radiography system and PACS function. Our experience
will save you time, money, and hassles because we know what problems you may face... even
before they happen. We have also developed a host of software programs that will
add functionality to your PACS and facilitate off site image backup and teleradiology.
- YOUR IMAGES ARE SAFE EVEN IF YOU DECIDE TO LEAVE: With DVMinsight your images are
stored with us even if you decide to cancel our service. Termination headaches are
another way that we differentiate ourselves from our competitors as many of our
competitors will delete your images if you decide to stop using their service!
