Great Images, Best Ease-of-Use, Unmatched Value-Added Features
MetronDVM Advanced Veterinary Imaging Technology
Metron-DVM includes all the features in basic Metron as well as those features found in MetronPro. In addition, Metron-DVM contains:
1. Support for DICOM
DICOM is an image representation standard which arose in the human medical field and has been making it's way into veterinary practice over the past few years. Metron-DVM provides the ability to read and write DICOM files, as well as burn DICOM-compliant CDs. Additionally, there is a communication side to DICOM, and so Metron-DVM features "DICOM Send & Receive" so that it can send any image in Metron to another DICOM device, or receive images from other devices. All devices which are DICOM compliant are required to have a "DICOM Conformance Statement" and ours is available here.
2. Direct Interface to eFilm
Metron-DVM supports a direct interface to eFilm (a popular DICOM viewer). This allows you to browse your eFilm database from within Metron, and to easily pull over any images you wish to bring into Metron! We think the Metron browser for eFilm is superior to the browser that is built into eFilm itself: just click on any study to see thumbnails of all the images in that study, then with one click, see all the thumnails for another study - can't do that in eFilm. The images come accross into Metron as DICOM images with all tags and full integrity.
3. Support for various Image Sources
Metron-DVM has been chosen by vendors of various popular DR and CR systems on the market. In these "bundled systems" Metron has been fine-tuned to best process images from the particular hardware it is married to. Metron-DVM also supports the acquisition, storage, and later browsing of images from various sources such as Ultrasound, any Twain-compliant device, Thermography cameras, and Video Capture.
4. Ability to burn a CD or DVD with images and the "Metron Viewer" so the recipient of the disc can view (and manipulate) the images.
This is the most convenient way to send out a set of images to a colleague or client. The resulting CD or DVD will allow the recipient to view and manipulate the images. The CD plays directly from the CD-player without the need to install any software on the recipient's CD. The CD is also DICOM compliant and so can be viewed in any DICOM viewer program.
5. Support for 16-bit-per-pixel image files and their manipulation.
Most digital images coming from digital cameras and other common sources use 8-bits to represent each color component of each pixel. However, images coming from modern Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Radiography (CR) systems often require support for 12- or 14-bits per pixel. Metron-DVM allows you to view, filter, and manipulate images with up to 16-bits per color component without losing any information in the image.
