The ACR continues to support innovation along a variety of fronts. Recently, the ACR, in partnership with Siemens Corporate Research and Technology (SCR), has been working with the DOD’s Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center on a project to explore unique solutions to diagnose TBI. The project involves several emerging technologies designed to explore the ability to create and deploy a custom imaging application within this important disease area.
The technologies include the open source eXtensible Imaging Platform (XIP), which facilitates rapid application development and the DICOM Part 19 standard, which outlines an interface for portable plug-in applications. Together these technologies allow researchers to quickly create, test and deploy custom imaging applications that explore particular clinical research hypotheses. For this particular project, we are testing a custom application designed to investigate aspects of TBI and deploy that application via the TRIAD™ workstation, a DICOM Part 19 compliant host.
