TIMS - Recording and Editing Solution

The TIMS MVP (Medical Video Platform) recording solution has been designed to simplify the video capture and archiving of any medical imaging modality providing high resolution video & audio recording. It will work in conjunction with your fluoroscope footswitch operation, and you have full control over that you send to your PACS archiving system.

With over 5000 systems installed worldwide, TIMS Medical has worked extensively with radiologists and speech pathologists to optimise workflow to make their recording, review, and analysis of MBSS, VFSS AND FEES studies more efficient. The result is customisable workflows from the extremely simple to the power user.

Why is TIMS Better than DVD

TIMS records the full 1024 x 1024 HD image from the fluoroscopy unit, so you get the same excellent sharp resolution and crisp image to review in a digital format. DVD or USB records HD at 512 x 512 pixels, instantly losing data quality.

Static and Streaming Video Capture

TIMS captures both still and motion video images with synchronised audio. This includes motion video capture and non-standard video signals such as fluoroscopy and endoscopy. Whilst SPA recommends a minimum 30 frames per second, TIMS can capture at up to 60 frames per second, as well as frame match the fluoroscopy when examining children at 8-10 frames, therefore maximising the resolution for each patient.

Capture the Entire Study

TIMS can acquire for long periods of time, enabling the capture of the entire study, even for long studies like those in motion X-ray, speech pathology, interventional radiology, cardiology, and echocardiogram. With TIMS MVP, you can connect any modality to multiple destinations at no extra charge.

The Solution for Recording & Review of Speech Pathology Studies

Replace your outdated, low quality DVD and video tape systems and upgrade to high resolution, DICOM, instant access and syncronised audio with TIMS.

Features

Convert non-DICOM modality to DICOM
Convert any medical modality to DICOM and send to PACS, record to USB, network and print. Any modality – CT, MR, nuclear medicine, motion X-ray, endoscopy, white light microscopy, angiography, ultrasound, and much more. Our software automatically analyses the video signal and calibrates exactly to the video specifications guaranteeing the very best image quality.

Study Annotation
TIMS MVP allows comments to be added using the Study Description or Series Description fields. These comments are displayed in the status bar of the TIMS window and included in the DICOM file. With Series Description, a pre-defined list can be set up so no need to type each time.

DICOM and Image Storage VIA USB
TIMS MVP can record to a USB device or a network destination. Multiple studies can be burned to a disk at one time for archiving purposes. A DICOM viewer is included and can be burned along with the patient study.

Export for Presentations
Sections of studies can be easily exported and embedded into PowerPoint  presentations for teaching or conferences, as video with audio or still images. Patient sensitive information can easily be screened out with a TIMS system.

Labelling
Labelling within TIMS MVP is easy to use and customisable to your needs. The system allows for studies to be labelled the same via Label Sets, either using preloaded descriptions (e.g. MBSImp and BoP) or customising own descriptions, and in both the Study or Series view.

Study Scoring
TIMS MVP 4.5 allows you to score an MBS study from within the software. Support for the MBSImP, DIGEST and PAS protocols are included, and custom “scorecards” can be created to accommodate other protocols. While scoring,  TIMS automatically displays previous scores for the same patient for real-time comparison. When scoring is complete, it generates a formatted results table for use in your reporting software or EMR system.

New Measurement Tools
TIMS MVP 4.5 has been updated with more advanced measurement tools. Metrics such as percent residue, hyoid excursion, and hyoid displacement can be quickly estimated using the area and linear measurement tools. Labels can now be applied to all measurements and annotations and a snapshot created of the resulting image for inclusion with the study to PACS.

Workflow, Workflow, Workflow!

 

With over 5000 systems installed worldwide, TIMS Medical has worked  extensively with speech pathologists to optimise workflow to make their recording, review, and analysis of Modified Barium Swallow (MBS), Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) and Videofluoroscopic Swallow  (FVS) studies more efficient. The result is customisable workflows from the extremely simple to the power user. TIMS MVP records studies at the maximum resolution of your fluroscope with speeds up to 30 frames per second and synchronized audio. Completed studies are easily archived to your PACS or VNA. The streamlined workflow quickly frees up a busy procedure room and provides clinicians the tools they need to accurately diagnose studies for best patient outcomes.

TIMS Review Software (formerly TDRS)

TIMS Review is a software-only version of the TIMS MVP system (no video acquisition hardware). TIMS review can be installed on any Windows 10 computer, in the clinicians consulting rooms or anywhere in the hospital, thus  freeing up the fluoroscopy suite for the next patient and improving workflow.

The speech study can be instantly sent over the hospital network from the TIMS MVP system in the fluoroscopy suite to one or more TDRS systems  throughout the hospital. TIMS is the only system that allows the user to review and edit studies prior to sending them to PACS or recording to USB or network

TIMS Diagnostic Imaging

The number of applications for TIMS is nearly endless. TIMS can be an essential tool in any department that uses diagnostic imaging – Radiology, Cardiology, GI, Urology, Endoscopy, Dermatology, Pathology, Motion X-ray, and more. Our customers are finding new ways to use TIMS almost every day. In fact, the current TIMS version that is available today is a direct result of the customer feedback that we have received over the years. We listen to our customer’s feature requests and do our best to implement them in future releases. TIMS has evolved as our customers needs have evolved.


“TIMS is by far the leader in the medical imaging industry when it comes to capturing still and motion video studies. Because of its unique streaming capabilities, many of our diagnostic imaging customers are utilizing TIMS for all of their motion procedures such as: angiography, fluoroscopy, nuclear medicine and ultrasound procedures, barium swallows, catheterization procedures, and others. Don’t be fooled by other DICOM conversion boxes that claim to capture streaming video, but in fact can only capture mere seconds of a study. TIMS is the only DICOM conversion system available today that is capable of capturing an entire study to be sent to a PACS or other archiving system”.

TIMS is used in many different applications across the country and around the world.

TIMS can be an essential tool in any department that uses diagnostic imaging – Radiology, Cardiology, GI, Urology, Endoscopy, Dermatology, Pathology, Motion X-ray, and more. TIMS can convert any non-DICOM modality to DICOM and then connect it to the PACS, or TIMS can simply connect a DICOM ready modality to the PACS thereby eliminating any destination charges from the modality vendor.

Many of our customers appreciate TIMS intuitive interface and useful editing feature. Because TIMS is a compete workstation, a technician is able to review and edit out extraneous images prior to sending to PACS. This assures that the radiologist only sees the views that are pertinent to the clinical diagnosis.
