MedDream is a web-based DICOM Viewer for PACS server that is aimed at making diagnoses, viewing, archiving and transmitting medical images. The DICOM Viewer can be integrated into any PACS system/VNA including: MedDream PACS, PacsOne, dcm4chee, Orthanc, Conquest, ClearCanvas, Google Cloud Healthcare, etc.
The MedDream DICOM Viewer ensures a prompt and reliable way to search, view, analyze and diagnose medical images, signals and video files from anywhere and on any device. Web-based DICOM Viewer is developed using responsive design, that enables medical images to be accessed not only on computers, but also on tablets, smart phones or other devices with mobile view functionality.
MedDream is FDA cleared for diagnostic use including mammographic images and is CE Class IIb certified as a medical device that can be used for review purposes or even primary diagnosis. Read more about MedDream certifications.
As a diagnostic image viewer, MedDream consists of a Viewer component, which runs in a browser and does not require any installation on the client device, and a MedDream application server, which handles communication with the hospital systems (HIS/RIS/PACS/VNA and any other EMR) and prepares images for streaming to the MedDream DICOM Viewer.
MedDream uses a flexible and open integration interface for connecting to HIS and/or EMR systems primarily based on URL calls, thus allowing it to be integrated into any medical application.
