IDEXX Laboratories Announces the Release of IDEXX-PACS™ 4.0 Imaging Software

IDEXX Digital Imaging customers can look forward to a simpler, quicker diagnostic imaging work flow

WESTBROOK, Maine, November 19, 2014 — IDEXX Laboratories, Inc., announced today the release of IDEXX-PACS™ Imaging Software version 4.0. This innovative software will immediately benefit current customers, whose feedback helped inform the company’s significant investment toward the software’s development. IDEXX Digital Imaging customers can take advantage of an intuitive, user-friendly interface that replaces text with simple icons and lets practices follow their normal work flow in far fewer steps. Clinicians can quickly and easily capture images and manage their cases for more responsive patient care and client service.

“Cutting-edge products like the IDEXX-PACS 4.0 software extend the value of our customers’ initial investment,” said Penny Guyton, General Manager, IDEXX Digital Imaging. “Our commitment to continuous improvement is part of the first-rate service and support they have come to expect. Our customers’ feedback, combined with a deep understanding of animal diagnostics, has allowed us to bring to market imaging software that has a positive and meaningful impact on veterinary practices.”

The IDEXX-PACS 4.0 software is touch-screen enabled so users can easily manipulate images with one hand, including pinch and zoom. Technique settings are viewable within the software and are automatically recorded in the practice’s radiology log. And customers gain peace of mind because all images are safely backed up and stored in the cloud using the IDEXX ImageBank™ Storage System*.

Additional IDEXX-PACS 4.0 software work-flow improvements include:

  • Profiles organized by patient so users can view all studies in one place

  • A visual shot tree so users can simply click on an area of focus rather than selecting from a list

  • Access to recent cases from the home screen for quick reference

  • The ability to search images by date, species, doctor or modality and to hide or display historical images, as needed

  • A favorites list where shots taken most frequently can be saved for quick access
