A fully integrated image management system
Is an intuitive fully integrated image management system that allows you to quickly store, retrieve, organize, categorize, show case, edit, e-mail and print ALL formats of your patient’s digital images.
Imaging is the cornerstone of ‘Visual Charting’ and is a fully mature system that has grown to meet the needs of our clients and promote optimal operatory work-flow.
Imaging Main Screen
Imaging interfaces directly with the hardware that acquires the digital image - you no longer require a “bridge” to another application. You can use Tracker’s Imaging instead of using the basic software that is often included with a digital radiography system to capture and store digital x-rays. Not only will using Tracker’s Imaging for your images allow you to take advantage of the integrated benefits of ‘Visual Charting’, you will also have peace of mind knowing that Tracker Imaging is truly hardware independent. Easily work with images that have been captured by various digital radiography systems, something that is often not the case with the software included with digital radiography systems. For optimal operatory work-flow, we have designed a “hands-free” Auto Take feature to efficiently take direct digital X-rays without touching a keyboard or mouse. Tracker Imaging also allows for live image capture directly from a video source and various digital radiography systems with Quick Image acquisition (without requiring an associated patient).
Editing and Organization
Tracker Imaging has all the standard digital radiography image enhancement tools you expect to see in a mature system, such as gamma and histogram equalization features, as well as auto equalize, remap intensity, and remove noise and many more. However, we have also added an auto enhancement feature (macro) and some advanced “smart” editing and cropping features (such as crop to centre/container size) that allow you to easily manipulate and enhance images quickly and consistently. A sophisticated Mount Designer allows you to design an unlimited number of image series that will automatically “tag” image properties during acquisition. You can also use several tools (magnify/brightness/contrast/invert) to zoom in and closely examine details of important areas, or take advantage of a full complement of image annotations that allow you to draw attention to important image features. Repetitive functions that normally take several steps and numerous mouse clicks in other systems have been optimized in Tracker Imaging so that you can perform these tasks with minimal effort.
Case presentation has become a popular and important aspect of many dental professionals. With Imaging you can enhance your case presentation results by grouping images by customizable categories. For greater impact on your patient, you can easily show before and after images of work you actually performed, rather than using stock images from an unknown dentist. To keep images consistent, the application offers a centre-line grid and the ability to rotate images freely to help properly align all facial photos. This feature, along with our special cropping functions, is especially important for those who do any cosmetic/orthodontic case presentations. IMAGING also has the added capability of storing and capturing short videos which can be used for treatment diagnosis even after the patient has left the office. Multiple images or an entire mount can be automatically converted to (smaller) JPG or PDF files and e-mailed with only two clicks!
For clients who require only basic imaging storage and editing functionality, Imaging also comes in a Lite version. This is ideal for offices that have not yet implemented a digital radiography system and simply want to store images for patients. (Please see our features comparison between Imaging and Imaging Lite.) Imaging Lite can be upgraded to the complete version of Imaging at any time, allowing you to take a “walk before you run” approach to implementing ‘Visual Charting’.
