JiveX Modality Gateways provide the link between the PACS and the imaging devices (modalities). The JiveX system offers interfaces for the most diverse image and video formats, enabling it to connect almost any image source - be it digital or analog - with the PACS. No matter whether you work with CT, MRI, digital X-ray, angiography, nuclear medicine, ECG, or video endoscopy and photography - with JiveX you can archive data from any type of medical imaging.
Based on national and international standards, JiveX works in conjunction with systems from other leading manufacturers. It goes without saying that JiveX complies with IHE requirements.
JiveX DICOM Modality Gateway
Via this interface, all devices which comply with the DICOM standard are connected digitally within the network. This is how the communication between the modality and the PACS typically takes place. This gateway allows for image data to be sent directly, through the DICOM storage service, from the modality to the JiveX Communication Server. Via the same route, image data can be sent back.
The JiveX Communication Server* is indexing incoming DICOM image data automatically. In addition, it is capable of processing data entry fields, keeping a log of the modifications, as well as to forward such data to other DICOM systems. Via the JiveX Study Verification Manager*, all incoming image data can be reconciled with, and attributed to, jobs from worklists.
JiveX ACR/NEMA2 Modality Gateway
Via this gateway, image data can be integrated directly from older modalities which support the ACR/NEMA2 format and can export images into a shared network folder. The transferred image data is then migrated into the DICOM format and sent to the JiveX Communication Server via the DICOM storage service. In order to optimize data consistency, this module allows for DICOM worklist queries. The DICOM worklist query is a key step towards quality assurance. Via this worklist, the DICOM exams are linked with the respective patient before import. In this way, image data are integrated permanently into the reporting processes, which allows for data retrievability at any time. In addition, manual synchronization of data is possible via the graphic user interface. Any modifications of the data are logged in the DICOM files; they can be reproduced and are absolutely transparent.
JiveX Analog Modality Gateway
The JiveX Analog Modality Gateway supports the acquisition of image data via a frame grabber, scanner (TWAIN), or digital camera (USB), as well as the conversion of various image formats into the DICOM format by way of stills (single images). In order to attribute data to a patient, the module queries the DICOM worklist. As an alternative option, key patient and exam data can be entered manually.
JiveX Analog Modality Gateway AV
The JiveX Analog Modality Gateway AV is the standard tool for the acquisition and digitization of video signals and video sequences. This module communicates with other IT systems via standard protocols, which makes it possible to connect it with systems from the JiveX family of products as well as other PACS solutions. The import of image data (e.g. JEPG, PNG) or PDF files from the file system is also supported. In addition, DVDs for documentation purposes can be created directly, and the image and video data can be exported into a directory.
The key application areas of the JiveX Analog Modality Gateway AV are endoscopy, microscopy, sonography, and OR documentation.
JiveX ECG Modality Gateway
The JiveX ECG Modality Gateway enables the digital storage of DICOM ECG data in the JiveX System. Therefor data formats of various ECG vendors can be converted into the vendor independent DICOM ECG standard. The JiveX ECG Modality Gateway enables you to store and archive your ECG examinations, integrating the ECG into the work and image distribution processes of the image management. ECG examinations can be viewed, paperless, at any JiveX desktop applications, including JiveX Review Web*.
* Respective extension module is required.
