How does InstaRad work?
InstaRad is a point to multi-point image distribution software solution. The standalone server hosting the InstaRad medical imaging solution is deployed at the medical or diagnostic center and is connected to the Internet. Modalities within the center are connected to the server via a local area network (LAN).
Once DICOM images from modalities are fed into the server, they can be accessed by doctors through a viewer on a web browser.
