Candelis Announces ImageGrid VM at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine Annual Meeting

June 10, 2022 — Candelis, Inc., a leading provider of innovative and cost-effective data management and PACS solutions for hospitals and imaging centers, announced the release of ImageGrid VM, a router enhancement ImageGrid DICOM for virtualized environments. Additionally, Candelis will exhibit ImageGrid VM at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) Annual Meeting in Kissimmee, Florida, June 9-11, 2022 at Candelis’ Exhibit Booth (#519).

“The recently launched ImageGrid virtual machine will provide customers with greater flexibility in how they deploy ImageGrid. ImageGrid’s industry-leading functionality will now be available within the customer’s existing virtual environments, providing benefits to many larger, high-volume healthcare facilities,” said Robert Van Uitert, vice president of marketing.

The ImageGrid VM includes the following cool features:

  • Increases the speed of existing PACS systems
  • Centrally manage workflow and imaging modalities from a single location
  • Advanced routing from multiple sources to multiple destinations
  • Rule-Based DICOM Tag Morphing
  • Improved pre-reading of studies
  • HL7 integration with existing RIS, EMR and PACS
  • Rapid delivery of large scale studies across health systems
  • Handles a large number of concurrent requests
  • Improves plant availability
  • Reduces the hours needed to manage terms and protocols

Candelis will also showcase the ImageGrid Plus product at SIIM 2022. ImageGrid Plus is a high-performance platform that has been optimized through years of collaboration with several leading healthcare institutions. ImageGrid Plus can support high-volume healthcare environments of over 1,000 modalities and is designed for facilities with an overburdened central system in the radiology department, and where complex routing rules and morphing DICOM tags are required to support the radiology work environment.

“Our partnership with Candelis has allowed us to significantly improve our enterprise-level workflow using ImageGrid Plus. There is a significant reduction in hours needed to manage modalities now that all protocols can be managed remotely and centrally for all our devices. As a result, we have optimized patient care by improving response time and enabling continuity of service, while reducing the cost of operations. We could not have moved forward without Candelis modernizing the traffic on our high-volume equipment,” explained Grant Smith, Director of CRES, Duke University Health System.
