Description: Dyna Computer Aided Detection (CAD) is a breast and prostate imaging workflow software. As a software component to the DynaCAD Workstation, DynaCAD employs a post-processing engine that generates Multi-Planar Reformatted (MPR) and Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) images. The data processed can be viewed on the DynaCAD Workstation (two 20-inch flat panel monitors that provide a workspace for viewing image data within a patient exam), or can be automatically forwarded to a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). Additionally, users can modify segments of an image view to see information such as volume analysis, lesion composition statistics, histograms, and a three-dimensional (3D) rendered morphological overview. The client is the same regardless of whether Dyna Computer Aided Detection is used for breast or prostate. The licensing determines whether the client can process breast, prostate, or both.

DynaCAD software is hosted on VA premises and stores Protected Health Information (PHI) in a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database. This data can be sent to a PACS.

This technology connects to PACS and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners via a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connection using Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). The MRI scanner sends breast studies to the DynaCAD unit, which processes and organizes them in a computer-aided detection layout. Radiology staff read the studies in the unit`s viewer and take result captures. These captures are sent back to PACS for permanent storage.

The vendor does not support the encryption of personal data (including Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) data) for transmission or storage (internally or on removable media). Additionally, the vendor does not support de-identification of DICOM data for export functionality.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary.
