1 May 1996 Clinical experience with the E-Systems Medical STATVIEW Classic and STATVIEW DX image network systems
Author Affiliations +
The first installation of the `STATVIEW Classic' image network system from E-Systems Medical was at William Beaumont Hospital in December 1993. The installation was intended to support a new critical care tower. Three hundred critical care beds are served by this system, with ten display stations. The system uses non-proprietary hardware for image display and the display software runs in Microsoft Windows. The system consists of a Lumisys model 150 laser digitizer with necessary control equipment, a file server consisting of a IBM compatible 486SX computer with 500 Megabytes of storage, and display stations based on IBM compatible 486DX (66 MHz) computers with NEC 6FGp monitors. We decided to expand the system by purchasing the new Statview DX system from EMED. In August 1995, installation of a DICOM 3.0 image network, the `STATVIEW DX' from E-Systems Medical, was completed. Considerations which were important during the installation of the system and the response of the medical staff to the image network will be discussed.
