Improving patient care with Axis video servers
At the radiology department of the University of California, Los Angles (UCLA), each radiologist used to make daily round trips to monitor CT (computed tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans at its numerous scanners, which were scattered over four buildings in the main campus area. The department was in need of remote monitoring capabilities to adequately supervise radiological studies and improve patient care.
Today, Axis video servers convert the scanners' video signals into digital images that are displayed on a Web page, enabling radiologists to remotely view images from any scanner at any time -- without the need to trek between buildings. The remote monitoring system enables the radiologists to conveniently evaluate a patient during a study and perform a quality check of the scans before the patient leaves the room.
"With the economic drive to provide high quality supervision over a much larger distributed area, the remote monitoring system based on the Axis video servers enables us to use our expertise more efficiently." -- Dr. Osman Ratib, Professor & Vice Chair of Information Systems, Department of Radiology, UCLA
