CoActiv (Booth # 7303), the digital medical imaging innovator, announces a broad range of introductions and enhancements to its EXAM-PACS®, EXAM-RIS® and cloud-based digital archiving family at the RSNA 2012 conference in November.
At RSNA, CoActiv brings important new functionality to its zero-footprint web-based EXAM-BROWSER® with real-time, multi-user collaboration and 3D reconstruction on-the-fly. “With the new browser, multiple users can now review an image simultaneously, collaborate, and offer second opinions as needed--with no pre-planning. This steps up the speed and quality of patient care, with a broader range of experts able to confer on a case in less time,” says Ed Heere, president and CEO of CoActiv. As 3D imaging grows in importance, CoActiv leads the field as one of the first PACS solutions to offer this sophisticated image review anytime and anywhere on a mobile device. The browser, which is seamlessly integrated into EXAM-PACS as well as available with most other PACS products, enables image viewing on a full range of platforms and mobile devices including the iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire and Android phones.
Long in the forefront of advanced technology, EXAM-PACS also provides support for such leading edge features as viewing and archiving of Hologic new C-View 3D/2D tomosynthesis images. With the growing importance of this 3D breast screening technique, C-View automatically extracts 2D breast images from 3D renderings, eliminating the need for a second exam, thus significantly reducing radiation exposure. EXAM-PACS can archive both representations in the same patient file for instant review.
As cloud-based digital imaging grows in importance, CoActiv also introduces expanded service and pricing options for its new EXAM-CLOUD®/EXAM-VAULT® extended time archiving. Choices range from complete medical image management, storage and sharing on CoActiv’s secure cloud to very affordable, disaster recovery and ultra-reliable data back-up. “CoActiv is committed to offering options that support every site’s workflow and budget to ensure that all customers can enjoy the benefits of a cloud solution that’s right for their practice,” says Heere.
CoActiv has long been committed to providing leading edge technology at a truly affordable price to make the best of digital imaging available to all medical facilities, whatever their size or setting. “With these introductions,” comments Heere, “CoActiv continues this commitment and at the same time reinforces its growth initiatives with an increasingly technology-forward product line for its expanding list of resellers and distributors across the country. At CoActiv, today’s focus on leveraging technology for the benefit of patient care and to make the most of shrinking healthcare dollars is nothing new. It is consistent with CoActiv’s ongoing philosophy, and we look forward to a bright future even during these challenging times.”

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...

Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
