Rogan-Delft releases next generation View Pro-X workstation while Maasziekenhuis Pantein in Boxmeer goes digital with Delft Diagnostic Imaging

Delft 28 September 2004Delft Diagnostic Imaging consists of Oldelft Benelux B.V., Rogan Delft B.V and Delft Imaging Systems B.V. After a successful testing period with a group of selected customers, Rogan-Delft has released the new diagnostic viewing application "View Pro-X" (VPX). In addition, Oldelft Benelux B.V. has signed an agreement with Maasziekenhuis Pantein in Boxmeer, The Netherlands, to supply, implement and maintain PACS/RIS in combination with digital X-ray rooms and phosphor imaging systems.


The new View Pro-X workstation offers highly improved user configurability with a very intuitive interface. Extensive integration capabilities for RIS, HIS, 3D and Speech Recognition systems have been implemented to provide the end-user a seamlessly integrated PACS system. View Pro-X is even more intuitive than the predecessor "HyperView". This has been made possible by using the Microsoft Windows "look and feel". Great emphasis is put on a faster work flow and less mouse movements in order to facilitate a relaxed operation.

The users always drive the Rogan-Delft development. Consequently the View Pro-X development has highly been influenced by European, Asian and American radiologists. By using the experience of these radiologists Rogan-Delft can provide applications that are a clear answer to the needs in the market today. The company has managed to develop an application that will adapt to the work flow of the user instead of the user who needs to adapt to the application. This has been possible due to the high-tech architecture of the View Pro-X.

The new View Pro-X is part of the Rogan OnLine XS product suite. Rogan OnLine XS can handle very small modality archiving needs up to large multisided enterprise PACS archives in a "no single point of failure" set-up. This PACS application is based on an architecture which provides the end-user a seamless upgrade path for future growth. Rogan-Delft offers one of the fastest PACS architectures commercially available today. Everything OnLine (EOL) and Multiple Archive Storage Server (MASS) architectures with automated back-up will overcome the shortcoming of old "system" driven pre-fetching architecture such as underperformance, inflexibility and difficult pre-fetching, especially with larger data sets such as Multi slice CT, MR and Cardio runs.

Maasziekenhuis Pantein in Boxmeer is patient-centred. Whilst always offering expert medical care, its management sets great store by further innovation and improvement of the services offered. The hospital is able to realise its organisation's goals by investing in new technologies and sophisticated technological innovations, such as digitalisation. Its latest project involves the digitalisation of the hospital with the aid of PACS and RIS, including DR and CR technology. Delft Diagnostic Imaging seeks to improve efficiency and working methods, to cut waiting lists, and to achieve improved quality of medical care for its clients.

Maasziekenhuis is a hospital at the leading-edge of change. The number of admissions has risen strongly on the strength of new techniques and the introduction of more efficient procedures and effective use of specialists and other staff. In the past three years alone, the hospital saw the number of inpatients grow by almost 30 percent, and the number of outpatient visits rise by 11 percent. Maasziekenhuis offers high-quality basic medical care, it conducts research into, and provides treatment for 85 percent of all known diseases. The hospital serves the 125.000 inhabitants of its catchment area, Land van Cuijk and North Limburg.
