The inherent stability of MAM's patented Phthalocyanine dye means that MAM Medical discs last longer than conventional CD-R media. Accelerated aging studies project longevity of more than 100 years, far in excess of any legally mandated archive period. This dye formulation also provides excellent performance at the high recording speeds used in medical applications. MAM Medical discs are certified for use in all high speed CD recorders.
Some filmless imaging suites utilize a CD recorder which requires the discs to be placed in a caddie. To support these users, MAM Medical discs are available in a durable, one-piece caddie which has been tested and approved by all the major CD recorder manufacturers. The MAM Medical caddie is robustly constructed of high quality materials to protect the writeable surface of the discs.
All the manufacturing and packaging of MAM Medical discs is done under cleanroom conditions. Every single disc undergoes a 100% inspection before it can be shipped. MAM has rejected random sampling techniques as simply not stringent enough for medical applications. This is our guarantee to the user that each MAM Medical disc is the finest engineer media available.
The DICOM (Digital Information and Communications in Medicine) Standard is a set of rules that allow medical images and associated information to be exchanged between imaging equipment, computers and hospitals. The standard establishes a common language that permits medical data produced on one vendor's machine to be available for use on the digital system of another vendor. The DICOM Standard evolved through meetings between medical imaging companies (represented through the National Electrical Manufacturers Association) and representatives from major medical societies including the American College of Cardiology, American College of Echocardiography, European Society of Cardiology, and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology.
