Radiology Reports with Key Images Improve Communication

A standard radiology report is a useful way to capture and succinctly communicate the results of most imaging scans, including X-rays, CT scans and MRIs. Whether in human health or veterinarian care, this summary of the identified condition and diagnosis is a critical communication tool between the radiologist and the treating physician or patient. While radiology reports are traditionally comprised of text, reports with key images improve communication by providing a new layer of depth and understanding for physicians and their patients.

How to Obtain, Share, and Display Medical Images as Evidence in Court

The use of digital medical imaging has become a pre-requisite for cases constructed by personal injury, workers' compensation, and criminal attorneys. This digital evidence is subject to the same discovery standards as hard copy documents and photographs. As such, the attorney has to be prepared to share these digital images with opposing counsel as they prepare for trial. But since medical images are just compilations of electronic bits, subject to strict privacy law and only as good as the medical image viewer on which they are analyzed, medical images create a special transport and sharing challenge.

Presenting Medical Images in Court Helps Attorneys Win Trials

Ever since the case of Smith v. Grant, presenting medical images in court has been an accepted tool in the arsenal of litigation attorneys. But understanding exactly how to use medical images, ensuring that you have them when you need them, and optimizing their presentation can be the difference between winning and losing at trial.

How Cloud Storage for Equine Veterinarians Improves Mobility

One of the main reasons veterinarians love Horos is because it allows them a level of mobility they do not have with other platforms. By downloading the medical image viewer onto a Mac laptop, veterinarians can view their images from anywhere they have their computer. They do not have to rely on an image viewer that is linked to a stationary modality or a software that only runs on workstations within their practice, they can take Horos with them wherever they travel. This is especially true for large animal and equine veterinarians.

Sharing Medical Imaging Studies With a Non Horos User

One question we have been asked many times is if sharing medical imaging studies with a non Horos user is possible.  The short answer is yes but it involves connecting your Horos with a Cloud. 

Today, Horos integrates with a web based platform that can enable sharing functionality with a non Horos user through a cloud portal. By creating a Horos Cloud Access account, you can view, analyze, and store images on any workstation, tablet, or mobile device…and connect multiple accounts

Can I Use Horos In A Windows Environment?

One of the most frequently asked questions we hear from Horos customers is "Can I use Horos in a Windows environment?" While Horos itself installs on an Apple Macintosh computer, the images that you view, analyze and store can be viewed on any workstation, tablet, or even a smartphone once you connect these all together with a Horos Cloud account.
