See how simple it is to use:
The reason is simple: the technologist or radiologist must visually determine the margins and the longest and widest dimensions while manually controlling the mouse-driven calipers. Only after five “clicks” and five tedious “drags and drops” can measurements be estimated – and some images contain multiple suspicious masses to measure.

This consistency is critical when reviewing current and prior studies to assess the need for additional imaging and biopsies: Is this mass growing? How fast? For how long? Measurement is the key factor.
And when cancer is diagnosed, neoadjuvant therapies require measuring tumor response to treatment. Again, measurement guides decision-making, including surgery options. Wide variability and inconsistency undermine patient care – especially as the images pass from technologist to radiologist to oncologist to surgeon. DL PreciseTM keeps everyone reading and working from the same, accurate data.
Equally important, DL PreciseTM is also flexible. Any measurement display can be easily modified, a key feature designed to ensure radiologists and consulting physicians always make the final judgment – not the software.
With a single click and drag, the radiologist can adjust the DL PreciseTM margin or the length of the axis lines, including or excluding a specific feature. Any change instantly recalculates the axis lines and measurements. Easy, quick adjustment keeps the healthcare professional in control.
DL PreciseTM works on any DICOM-compliant medical image, regardless of the image acquisition machine type. Accurate comparisons across all prior studies are now possible – establishing a consistent baseline. That facilitates physician-to-physician consultations when surgery decisions must be made. The vivid color of DL PreciseTM images will also assist primary care physicians, oncologists, and surgeons during patient consultations.
The DL PreciseTM display can be saved automatically and sent to the DICOM file for documentation. As a plug-in utility, DL PreciseTM is compatible with all FDA-approved OEM, PACS, VNA, and specialty viewers. It is sold through current device and IT system vendors Depending on the workstation and viewer, automatic data entry to structured reports is possible, further reducing reading/dictation time and avoiding transposition errors.
