Digital Lightbox(C) Unlocks New Possibilities in Collaborative Patient Treatment

BrainLAB touchscreen technology allows medical professionals to instantly

access and manipulate patient data

WESTCHESTER, Ill., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- BrainLAB, a global leader in software-driven systems for targeted, less-invasive medical treatments, today showcased one of its latest innovations, Digital Lightbox(C)*, at the Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). Combining the advantages of a traditional hospital lightbox with the features of modern computer workstations, Digital Lightbox offers unparalleled flexibility for physicians who require access to images, including MRIs, CTs, PETs and x-rays.


Digital Lightbox is an interactive, collaborative tool that provides fast and ergonomic access to digital medical information. Unlike traditional hospital lightboxes, Digital Lightbox integrates with a hospital's Picture Archive and Communications System (PACS) and allows physicians to access information in a variety of formats in almost any location-such as the OR, an office or a meeting room. Digital Lightbox also offers a wide range of DICOM viewing functions and advanced functionality such as automatic image fusion in combination with an intuitive touch screen-making image navigation and modification easy.

Ideal for collaborative medical environments, Digital Lightbox enables surgeons, oncologists, radiologists and other clinicians to quickly and easily access and exchange information when it's needed most. Digital Lightbox transforms traditional static images into detailed and dynamic views with its multimodality image and data system, allowing users to extract more value from data for better clinical decision-making.

"The flexibility of applications available with Digital Lightbox makes this product truly unique for the hospital environment, as it fosters communication and cooperation between different functions and departments within a hospital," said Wolfgang Steinle, Division Director, Radiology, BrainLAB. "Designed to integrate seamlessly into a hospital's existing hardware and software mix, Digital Lightbox is a sound investment for any modern medical institution."

Digital Lightbox is a wall-mounted, intuitive, multi-touch controlled medical image viewing device that features connectivity to PACS servers and the BrainLAB treatment planning system iPlan(R) Net for fast image and treatment plan review. Treatment plans for surgery and radiation therapy can easily be accessed, altered or confirmed for treatment. Data can be retrieved in multiple formats including DICOM, jpg, bmp, tif, png, avi, wmv and BrainLAB proprietary image formats.
