Chicago, IL (August 11, 2010) – InnoVet is pleased to announce a seamless DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) integration between the all-new Versa DR digital imaging system and ImproMed, Inc.’s Infinity Practice Management Software.
The DICOM imaging standard was developed to define the rules and guidelines for handling, storing, and transmitting information regarding digital imaging. This integration removes the need for Infinity users to duplicate client entry into multiple systems and reduces the need to look up patients’ medical record information from multiple sources.
Versa DR’s acquisition software, provided by Vieworks or IDC, allows Infinity to generate Modality Worklists entries from a patient’s medical record. This feature automatically populates imaging requests within Versa DR’s user interface and applies the appropriate charges to the client’s invoice. Upon completion of the image capture, the final digital images can be accessed directly from the patient’s medical record. By facilitating direct access from the practice management system to InnoVet’s image acquisition software, Versa DR streamlines care and improves practice workflow.
A fully integrated digital imaging solution, Versa DR sets a new digital standard in veterinary radiography. Greg Oravec, Director of Clinical Sales, adds that InnoVet’s engineering team designed Versa DR to meet the needs of technologically-driven veterinary business models. “We know veterinarians are using practice management technology to run their practice more efficiently while also improving patient care. Partnering with top practice management providers, like ImproMed, is key to fulfilling that goal.”
“We are pleased to welcome a new member of our DICOM integration family with the interface between Infinity and InnoVet,” said Matt Huhn, ImproMed’s Director of Business Development. “InnoVet and and ImproMed both see the importance of adhering to the DICOM standards for the betterment of the industry and our shared customers.”
Versa DR is available with IDC’s Sirius or Vieworks QxVue acquisition software. To find out if your practice management software will integrate with Versa DR, please contact Justin Sossin, Digital Installation Specialist.

InnoVet pioneered veterinary radiography in 1991 with the first x-ray system designed by veterinarians for veterinarians. This revolutionary unit combined all the tools needed for an x-ray exam: a full-size table, moveable tubestand, 300 mA generator and lead-lined cassette box into one compact package. Prior to this time, vets were relegated to use human medical x-ray systems for the unique needs of veterinary imaging.
