Designed, developed and refined over a five-year period by a radiologist, Dr Arpad Bischof and team the portable medical applications system is packed with functions dedicated to healthcare imaging. Dr Bischof explains that the system enables safe, secure reporting anywhere, anytime. ‘I’m no longer anchored to the reading room. I can work around the hospital and close up to patients as I see fit, or remotely, like when I’m on-call, at home or anywhere else. It’s giving me so much flexibility. I never thought radiology could be like this.

Made to work with its own Port-Ray software as an integrated part of the PACS or with almost all zero-footprint universal viewers from leading PACS companies, the system’s unique features include:  

  • DICOM grayscale and colour operation via one-touch button 
  • DICOM hardware calibration
  • Ambient light sensor and conditions indicator
  • Large 13.3” touch-screen display 
  • Integrated precision measurement pen
  • Integrated dual-purpose carry case/non-slip display stand
  • Automatic portrait and landscape orientations
  • Certified medical device 

‘Plum is a daughter company of PACS vendor IMAGE Information Systems,’ the firm reports. ‘It is the only company in the world dedicated to portable diagnostic imaging and cloud-based medical communication systems.’
