Desktop Applications

Individuality and Efficiency

Individuality and Efficiency

The JiveX systems support 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 Communication Server, which acts as the control center of the JiveX system, manages the 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 auto-routing/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.

Workstation or Client

Desktop applications are differentiated according to workstation and client. Both systems offer benefits depending on the area of application and available network topology. 

Client Application

Most desktop applications are used as a JiveX client application. This application accesses the JiveX server directly in order to load image data and documents (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.

Workstation Application

A JiveX workstation comes with an embedded JiveX Communication Server with an integrated database and independent DICOM communication services. As a result, this workplace can be operated without a central JiveX Server, with extension options for other internal services. Via the integrated server, prefetching or auto-routing directly to the desktop application is possible. In addition, on-demand access to a central JiveX Server or a remote server can be realized via a WAN (wide area network) connection.

JiveX Desktop Applications

The development of JiveX desktop applications is based on differ­ent technologies. The desktop applications for image distribution, JiveX Web and JiveX Mobile, are based on web technologies (HTML5). The viewing clients use 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, JiveX ­Diagnostic Tomosynthesis, and JiveX Demonstration.

JiveX Web

The JiveX Web Client provides clinical users with fast access to all image data and diagnostic data from his or her desktop PC, e.g. for hospital-wide distribution of data. JiveX Web can be operated as a stand-alone application, or it can be completely integrated into your mobile HIS/RIS APP. The application can be accessed via standard Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox) on a desktop PC. All data is prepared on the basis of standards and can be processed interactively. The JiveX Web Client provides the user with the essential image-viewing functions. These include, in particular, smooth magnification and grayscale windowing (DICOM window/level). Viewing of Multiframe objects as well as video is possible.

JiveX Mobile

With the JiveX Mobile Client, the clinical user has quick access, for example during clinical visits, to all images and diagnostic data via a mobile device. JiveX Mobile can run as a stand-alone application or it can be integrated completely into your mobile HIS/RIS app. The image data is automatically prepared for this on the basis of standards and can also be edited interactively.

JiveX Review

This desktop application allows interactive image and diagnostic report viewing at each networked workplace. The special JiveX transfer protocol transfers the data, depending on the use case, in various qualities on-demand from the JiveX server to the workplace. This enables data transmissions to remain highly performant.

JiveX Quality Assurance QA

The JiveX Quality Assurance Client enables direct access to the database to allow for modification of incorrectly entered information. This process includes audit-proof logging of all modifications.

JiveX Diagnostic

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. With the aid of oblique MPRs and adaptable cutlines, it is possible to make any cross-section through the volume displayed. Slice distance and slice thickness can be freely selected. 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 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 comes with the JiveX Mammo Report Manager which is a fully integrated module for reporting.

JiveX Diagnostic Tomosynthesis

The reporting software JiveX Diagnostic Tomosynthesis offers – in addition to viewing and reading of mammography images – further options for presenting and editing tomosynthesis image data. The Software provides optimized MIP algorithms required for generating thin slice views and has advanced image hanging options for tomosynthesis images. Through the DICOM Tomosynthesis Standard, it supports the modalities of different manufacturers.

The JiveX Mammo Report Manager  is an extension module for JiveX Diagnostic Mammo* or JiveX Diagnostic Tomosynthesis*. 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 the highest work efficiency and security.

JiveX Demonstration

As a specialized workplace for clinical demonstration and image representation, JiveX Demonstration offers numerous functions for preparing and realizing presentations as well as for image ­editing and reading. 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 module 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 selectively defined and segmented. This tool can view and measure pathologies, for example stenosis or aneurysms, in curved MPR images. Measurement results are automatically available 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 variation 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.
