Imaging / Teleradiology

Key features

  • Upload and download images of various formats
  • Limit the footprint of usually used paper imaging / radiology
  • Safely store images in a high-performance web PACS
  • View images via an innovative web viewer that works on both computer and mobile devices
  • Create interactive image reading in a group of users by combining this tool with video-conferencing

This dedicated imaging tool allows all types of imaging data (e.g. DICOM, JPEG, TIFF) to be easily uploaded, managed and stored through the combination of a picture archive communication system (PACS) supporting images storage, and an image web viewer to read images.

Thanks to its platform centralizing various e/m-health applications, SATMED enables interactive teleradiology sessions thanks to the combination of e-imaging with video-conferencing and e-consultancy tools.

An additional asset of Imaging and teleradiology tool is its associated low footprint. Indeed, no installation of software applications are required at the local site and images anonymization requires lower footprint than paper version.

To comply with high standards of data protection and safety, DICOM images are anonymized, via the use of a pseudo, during upload (removal of the so-called private headers).

Protection of patient privacy and data security

SATMED fully complies with European data protection standards. Data which would identify a patient (such as name, address, date/place of birth, etc.) is visible only to the treating physician and is not shared with any third party. In addition, such information is only processed through the internet in an encrypted manner. 

The Teleradiology tool available on SATMED also provides several measures to protect the privacy of patient data:

  • Users must not enter private information (e.g. patient name, address, date/place of birth, etc.) but only patient IDs.
  • When uploading DICOM images, the images will be automatically “pseudo-anonymized” by the SATMED upload tool suggesting that any patient information which is part of the image header is removed and replaced by the patient ID.
