Indications for Use
The OnePacs System is an image management system intended to provide scaleable DICOM compatible PACS solutions for hospitals and related institutions and sites, which will archive, distribute, retrieve and display images and data from all hospital modalities (such as CR, CT, DR, MR, and other devices) and information systems. This also includes the display of structured reports and mammography images that have been created according to DICOM "For Presentation", and will include standard features and other tools for analyzing mammography images.
Lossy compressed mammographic images and digitized film screen images must not be reviewed for primary diagnosis or image interpretation. For primary diagnosis, post process DICOM "for presentation" images must be used. Mammographic images should only be viewed with a monitor approved by FDA for viewing mammographic images.
Caution: The OnePacs system as deployed for clinical use is a registered/licensed medical device. Educational and Research versions of the OnePacs system are neither intended nor licensed for clinical use, and should only be used as permitted by applicable and governing regulations.
Notice for users within the United States:
Caution: The OnePacs system as deployed for clinical use is For Prescription Use Only (US Regulation 21 CFR 801.109). Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
The goal of OnePacs Workstation for macOS is to deliver the best possible viewer for images produced by radiology equipment. Its key features are displaying, reviewing, interpreting and post-processing images. OnePacs Workstation for macOS is an image processing software primarily dedicated to DICOM images.
OnePacs Workstation for macOS is based on Horos, which is based on OsiriX. OsiriX was originally an open-source project, distributed under the LGPL license. However, the project has recently evolved into a closed-source format. This has given other communities the opportunity to inherit the original project with its original philosophy, thus creating the Horos project. OnePacs Workstation for macOS is a declination of Horos that specializes it for usage with the other OnePacs components.
OnePacs Workstation for macOS fully supports the DICOM standard for an easy integration in your workflow environment. It offers advanced post-processing techniques in 2D and 3D, and offers a complete integration with any PACS. OnePacs Workstation for macOS supports 64-bit computing and multithreading for the best performances on the most modern processors.
