Stradus Hybrid PACS Features

Stradus Hybrid PACS provides a rich set of tools to support radiologists in their work. The following are the main tools available. Each tool is followed by a short description for non-radiologists who might not be familiar with these functionalities:


DescriptionInside facilityOutside facility
Thumbnails overview of all series Allows for a quick overview of all the series of the same patient, including possibility to view all prior series. Helps to save time
Flexible display layout Easily view the images in any layout ((1x1, 2x2, 2x1, 1x2, 1x3, 2x3, 3x3 etc.) and easily switch between different layouts
Hanging protocols Have images automatically open in the most practical layout for your specific cases based on your preferences. Hanging protocols can take into account, study types, body parts examined, modalities, current/prior exams etc. This ensures a highly productive way of working
Windowing Easily change the brightness and contrast
Window presets Use the window levels provided with the images by the modalities, or use custom presets (bone, chest, head etc.)
Invert Image Allows to invert the image contrast (black becomes white, white becomes black etc.) for improved visibility when required
Zoom/pan Easily zoom in and move to the areas of interest in the images
Magnifier The magnifier allows to quickly look at specific areas of the image in detail
Stack scroll Modalities like CT and MRI create large stacks of images. Stradus allows fast and smooth scrolling through even the largest studies with thousands of images
Synchronized Scrolling Images in other series will automatically scroll along to show the closest corresponding images
Reference Lines Reference lines show where the images are located with respect to each other
Smart Pointer 3D cursor automatically shows images in other views that are closest to the point clicked. Useful for example when one has series in different orientations and one wants to easily correlate them
Movie Mode Conveniently play multi-frame images in automatic movie mode. Movies automatically play at the speed (frame rate) provided by the modality or chosen by the user
Pixel Value Show the pixel values at the location of the cursor
Pixel Size Calibration Most modern modalities provide reliable pixel sizes that can be used when doing measurements. In some cases, like for example some special x-rays this is not available or possible. In this case Stradus PACS allows to measure a structure in the image of a well-known size for calibration purposes to reliably estimate the actual pixel size
Length Measurements Measure length on any images that has a pixel size provided by the modality or by using the pixel sizes obtained from calibration
Angle Measurements Measure simple angles
Cobb Angle Measurements Practical and quick way to obtain the angle between two lines in the images
Rotating Rotate your images in any degree
Flipping / Mirroring Flip and mirror your images horizontally and vertically
Region of Interest Allows to quickly obtain relevant statistics about the size and pixel values in the area
Save Jpeg Image Useful to quickly save an image as a Jpeg for example for quick use in presentations
Quick Reformatting (MPR) Single click reformatting in orthogonal directions (for example axial to sagittal or coronal)
Full Oblique Reformatting (MPR) Reformat the images under any angle. No need to open a separate viewer or to install any plug-ins.
Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) MIP allows for specific cases to more quickly see
Keyboard Shortcuts Some users prefer to use the keyboard instead of the mouse or touchpad to quickly navigate the images
