The JiveX systems sport a modular system architecture and can be extended, in the network, by various platform-independent desktop applications. JiveX supports, for respective areas of application, several operating systems. The JiveX Communication Server, which acts as the switchboard of the JiveX systems, manages the image database centrally and makes it available to the desktop applications.
Depending on the concept for the network, access to images from the workplace can take place suited to particular needs directly from the server (on-demand) or rule-based via automatic autorouting/pre-fetching. In addition, the server makes available, via the DICOM Query/Retrieve protocol, a standard interface which allows for seamless integration of common third-party systems into the network at any time.
Desktop applications are differentiated according to workstation and client. Both systems offer benefits depending on the area of application and available network topology.
Most desktop applications are used as a JiveX client application. This application accesses directly the PACS server in order to load image data (on-demand). A prerequisite for this is sufficient network capacity which should be adopted to the needs. For common application scenarios, standard networks are absolutely sufficient. Even reporting and clinical demonstration is highly performant on a usual network.
A JiveX workstation disposes of an embedded JiveX Communication Server with an integrated image database and independent DICOM communication services. This is how that workplace can be operated even without PACS server, with extension options for proprietary additional services. Via the integrated server, prefetching or auto-routing direcly to the desktop application is possible. In addition, on-demand access to a central PACS server or a remote server can be realized via a WAN (Wide Area Network) connection.
The development of JiveX desktop applications is based on different technologies. The basic system JiveX Review Web for image distribution facilitates Web 2.0 technology with Adobe Flash. The viewing clients are using Java technology and are functionally based on JiveX Review. In addition, all functions of JiveX Diagnostic are available in JiveX Diagnostic Advanced, JiveX Diagnostic Mammo and JiveX Demonstration.
JiveX Review Web
This desktop application for image and report distribution allows for convenient and fast retrieval of images and reports via a Web browser. All image data is prepared for this purpose automatically in accordance with standards; in addition, it can be processed interactively.
This desktop application allows for interactive image viewing at each networked workplace. The transfer of image data takes place in a highly performant manner. The special JiveX transfer protocol transfers the image data, depending on the use scenario, in various qualities on-demand from the PACS server to the workplace.
JiveX Quality Assurance QA
The JiveX Quality Assurance Client enables direct access to the image database to allow for post-hoc correction of erroneously entered information. This process includes audit-proof logging of all modifications.
The independent reporting software JiveX Diagnostic was designed for all imaging modalities based on the DICOM standard. It provides a broad spectrum of image processing options, including multiplanar reconstruction. In conjunction with the integrated workflow management, it provides rapid image reporting and top work efficiency in radiology, cardiology, endoscopy, sonography, and further imaging fields.
JiveX Diagnostic Advanced
The diagnostic software JiveX Diagnostic Advanced offers comprehensive image editing options for all DICOM modalities. In particular, the tomography diagnostic is optimally supported by features such as integrated image registration, multiplanar reconstruction and 3D volume rendering. A real-time synchronization of corres-ponding mouse positions is possible across studies and representations (2D/3D).
JiveX Diagnostic Mammo
The independent reporting software JiveX Diagnostic Mammo was developed specifically for curative mammography and mammography screening. The highly specialized hanging and reading protocols meet the most challenging requirements for smooth work processes. As an option, the system disposes of the JiveX Mammo Report Manager which is a fully integrated module for reporting.
The JiveX Mammo Report Manager is an extension module for JiveX Diagnostic Mammo*. This software allows you to manage the entire reporting process for screening – from primary reporting to the consensus conference, with IHE compliant connectors to mammography information systems. Furthermore, supervision is supported. Seamless integration of the reporting editor with partly automated documentation provides highest work efficiency and security.
As a specialized workplace for clinical demonstration and image representation, JiveX Demonstration offers extensive functionalities for preparing and realizing presentations as well as for image editing and diagnosis. The moderation mode provides you, on an additional managing monitor, with all relevant exam and reporting information in a clear manner. For image representation in the operating room and for digital ward rounds, too, JiveX Demonstration is the ideal solution.
JiveX Vessel Analysis
This software is designed for fast and convenient vessel segmentation, analysis and diagnosis. It is integrated with the JiveX Diagnostic workstation. The software allows all extra cardiac vessels to be defined and segmented selectively. For the analysis of cardiac problems, JiveX Cardio Analysis is in preparation. This tool can view and measure pathologies, e.g. stenosis or aneurysms, in curved MPR images. Measurement results are available automatically for integrated report creation.
JiveX DICOM Viewer
The JiveX DICOM Viewer is the image viewing software for DICOM files. It is capable of loading and displaying DICOM files from a file directory or a removable medium (CD, DVD, USB stick, etc.). System handling is extremely easy, and allows a variety of image processing functions.
The JiveX DICOM CD Viewer version was produced specifically for the display of DICOM image files from patient CDs. It is capable, as an additional function, of displaying available report texts, and thereby provides the direct relation between image and report.
The JiveX DICOM Mail Viewer variation allows for the retrieval of DICOM e-mails, and can be coupled directly with the DICOM e-mail system. This makes it particularly suitable for referring physicians, as it enables easy and safe receipt of exams including image and report. The integrated image processing offers the usual functions regarding measuring, zooming, and window leveling of image data.
* Respective extension module is required.
System requirements and functionality according to current product specification, DICOM and HL7 Conformance Statements, IHE Integration Statement, as well as Platform Product Clearance Policy. We will be glad to advise you in selecting appropriate hardware, and suggest use of systems certified by JiveX (JiveX Certified System).
