"..TDK has announced the introduction of its Medical CD Recording Station (Model CDRS-1100), a complete turnkey hardware and software solution specifically developed for recording multimodality radiologic images onto CD-R.
Marketed by TDK Medical, the CDRS-1100 is designed to connect to a DICOM-compliant modality or added to an existing DICOM network, much like a network printer. So configured, the CDRS-1100 enables a radiology department to create cost-effective, universally-readable CD copies of diagnostic images for distribution to referring physicians and patients and for use in teaching and case work-up.
With the CDRS-1100, a radiology department has the ability to generate multiple copies of any diagnostic image quickly and easily; a 50-megabyte CT scan, for instance, can be recorded onto a TDK Medical Grade CD-R in just minutes at a cost of approximately $5 per disc. A specially designed line of Medical CD-R envelopes has also been developed to mail and file the disc along with appropriate printed material.
TDK Medical Grade CD-R discs are a convenient digital exchange tool. Radiologic images recorded by the CDRS-1100 are stored in both DICOM and multimedia image formats. This multimedia recording strategy makes the disc readable on the more than 500 million CD-ROM drives in use around the world. The images can be exported into standard PC applications such as Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe Photoshop or accessed via Microsoft Internet Explorer.."
