About the TIMS DICOM System

Hospitals and imaging clinics around the world need to convert their non-DICOM medical modalities to DICOM.  Upgrading or replacing these modalities is too expensive, often costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.  PACS is a large enough expense in and of itself.  Replacing all of the non-DICOM devices for PACS connectivity purposes is simply not cost-effective.  The solution is the TIMS DICOM System.  TIMS converts any non-DICOM medical modality to DICOM.  The resulting digital study can be sent to PACS, recorded to CD/DVD/USB, and printed to film or paper.  TIMS is available for a small fraction of the cost of a modality upgrade.  Yes, TIMS can convert ANY medical modality to DICOM.  This includes ultrasound, fluoroscopy, endoscopy, motion X-ray, angiography, nuclear medicine, MR, CT, and much more.  TIMS captures both static images and streaming video at 30 frames per second, 15 frames per second, or at virtually any frame rate desired.  TIMS even converts to DICOM the JPG, BMP, and AVI images generated in pathology, dermatology, and ophthalmology applications.
