University of California Davis Completes Installation of Eklin Digital Radiography Platform

(Edited press release)

Eklin Medical Systems, PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System), and Practice Information Management (PIMS) software for the veterinary care market, announced the company has completed installation of its Eklin Digital Practice solution at the University of California (UC), Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. The installation includes three RapidStudy EDR6 DR systems, a RapidStore SF archive and eFilm software.

"We are realizing the benefits of the Eklin Digital Practice," said Sarah Puchalski, DVM, assistant professor of diagnostic imaging, UC, Davis. "Image quality is excellent. Rapid archiving and viewing capabilities have a positive impact on workflow. Integration of this system into our pre-existing PACS has gone very smoothly, and the use of the PACS and eFilm viewing software is preparing students better for the digital imaging world." 

Just as digital cameras have made photography more efficient by eliminating film, the Eklin RapidStudy Digtal Radiograph (DR) system provides the veterinarian with an image that can be viewed immediately on a high-resolution monitor without teh need for film developing. The Eklin DR system also offers sophisticated image processing tools, giving the veterinarian much greater depth of information that can be enlarged or manipulated for far better detail. Eklin offers either a 9" x 11" sensor panel or the industry's only full-size 14" x 17" sensor panel. Images can be stored and archived for future evaluation using the Eklin PACS, which is based on DICOM standards used by hospitals and clinics around the world. In addition, medical records, lab results, billing, financial statements and other pertinent patient or practice information is available with Eklin's VIA+ PIMS.

"UC Davis is considered one of the top veterinary schools in the nation," said Gary R. Cantu, president and CEO of Eklin. "It is an honor to be a part of this outstanding team and help support the excellent patient care provided by the staff and help in the development of tomorrow's veterinarians."
