Dear Flownetters:
we're using KinetDx digital archive, sold through Siemens since we've gone 
to all Antares duplex scanners- I and my Vascular Surgery colleagues are 
very frustrated for several reasons:
1) no sound
2) video clips of spectra don't show changing position of the sample volume 
(the image doesn't change, you just get to see the spectrum sweeping)
3) Siemens said the $2000 workstations were adequate, but we often get 
message "not enough memory" when we try to play clips, so we may have to 
buy the $40,000 workstations that our Cardiologists use
4) the web version that we use when off-campus is awful for video and 
doesn't let us mark studies as "Read"

we are likely to change our Flow-Labs to be DICOM compatible to make all 
our studies digital archived, but has anyone had experience with other 
archive software that doesn't have those problems?
