Version 9 of ComPACS —manufactured by MediMatic of Genoa, Italy—brings with it options for Philips Sonos and HDI users who are looking for an alternative to the vendor's DICOM network upgrade.

With ComPACS v.9, images can be imported automatically and data recorded from MODs into a fully DICOM SR-compliant database. The system features a dynamically interpolated zoom, multiple format displays, and the ability to perform side-by-side analysis of multiple exams. Report generators and output documents are customizable for both echo and vascular studies.

Distributed through MediMatic—which provides hardware, installation, training, and responsive remote IT support— ComPACS v.9 supports HL7, Internet, and EMR connections, and it offers Web viewing and reporting identical in look and function to their LAN counterparts.
