This unique digipaX feature is optimizing the workflow in the x-ray department. How this works:
1) At the entrance desk: registration of patient data:
At first all relevant patient data will be registered or taken over from an already ex-isting external database:
After registration the patient data are available at all connected workstations.
2) In the Doctors cabinet: creating an x-ray job (examination)
The physician is calling the patient from the database and is fixing one or more ex-aminations.
Necessary side information can be registered as well. After finishing this procedure, the job is stored at the Worklist server.
3) In the x-ray room: the x-ray tech performs the examination
The x-ray technician is calling the patient from the database and can see the pre-pared x-ray jobs.
After choosing the job and „clicking “ on start x-ray, the system is ready. DigipaX does set up the x-ray generator and the picture post-processing.
The x-ray generator is indicating the job and all related parameters, like kV, mAs and AEC automatically.
The x-ray technician puts the patient in the right position and press the exposure button
After about 10 sec the x-ray picture appears on the monitor. The effectively per-formed x-ray parameters (kV, mAs and DAP) are indicated as well.
x-ray technician does evaluate the picture, is indicating the relevant
part of the picture (manual cropping) and confirm the job.
After confirming the job, the x-ray exposure will be stored at image server and is available at all connected workstations. At the same time the job will be deleted from the Worklist server
