Description: TIMS Review is a software-only version of the TIMS DICOM System. Studies from TIMS systems can be sent from the fluoroscopy or endoscopy suite to a TDRS system anywhere on a hospital network. Analysis utilities are available with TDRS including study editing, customized annotations, stopwatch timing, and adding of audio comments. Studies can be archived to Compact Disc (CD), Digital Versatile Disc (DVD), and Universal Serial Bus (USB) network drives. Also, users are given customized workflows, the ability to send studies to a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), and DICOM connectivity. Additionally, if users have studies (such as pathology or ophthalmology) that are already in digital image form, these can be imported and converted to DICOM, and sent to the PACS.

TIMS Review is part of the TIMS Medical Video Platform (MVP), but it can be installed and run separately from the rest of the products.
