Tangent medical computers for medical imaging

Medical Computers For Medical Imaging

Medical imaging has been one of the premier medical advancements of the last century. Doctors can utilize x rays, MRI machines, and tests to get a look inside a patient’s body. These processes have led to better diagnostic capabilities and a more precise medical process. But these imaging technologies are only as good as the equipment they are connected to. Your doctors need the right medical computers to receive medical imaging files, and Tangent has them.

Medical Imaging Made Easy

Medical imaging typically requires a device such as an MRI or xray machine. These machines do the heavy lifting of creating images for your doctors to investigate. But the medical computer that displays these images is equally important.

Medical computers like the M24T from Tangent come equipped with a wide touchscreen. Your doctors can use this screen to get a full and clear view of the medical image they are parsing.

The touchscreen also allows your doctors to enhance and zoom in on images to get a closer look. The M24T’s SSD combined with its 8th generation Intel processor ensure that your doctors can manipulate and study these medical images without lag.

Better Diagnostics 

Medical computers also have the ability to send and receive medical images with ease. Once a file has been transferred to a medical computer, your medical staff can send it to any other point in the hospital. 

For instance, let’s say a nurse is drawing blood. They then send the blood to the lab for testing. The test results can easily be sent via a medical computer right back to the doctor that ordered them. The doctor can then parse the test results and make accurate decisions.

This is also true for medical images from MRI or xray machines. In both cases, doctors are able to quickly send results to patients, lab technicians, or other doctors for second opinions. They can also order print outs for physical viewing.

Safe and Sanitary Medical Computers

Medical computers from Tangent like the E24B all feature antimicrobial coatings. These coatings prevent harmful bacteria from proliferating on the surface of the medical computer.

Tangent medical computers: 5 uses

5 Uses For Medical Computers

It may seem like the uses of medical computers mirror those of traditional computers, and that the two are interchangable. They both send emails, can handle spreadsheets, and can access the internet. But the uses of medical computers are far more exact and tailored to the hospital environment. Here are five of the top uses for medical computers.

Medical Imaging With Medical Computers

Medical imaging requires the use of complex machinery like X-ray, ultrasound, and MRI Machines. Hospital staff nearly always need a reliable medical computer in order to operate these machines.

These cameras are perfect for giving your patients the face-to-face time with their doctors that they need.

Patient Monitoring

Just as medical computers can help your doctors connect with patients, they can also help them to monitor important medical information. Remote monitoring technology coupled with Tangent computers can allow your doctors to receive real time information from their patients. They can then use this data to recommend treatments, call patients in for emergency care, and generally help patients in a way not possible before.

Medical Computers For Surgery Procedures

Surgery rooms need to be sterile, and traditional computers can detract from a room’s sanitation. They can become breeding grounds for harmful bacteria and also circulate dusty air throughout the room. Tangent medical computers like the E24B feature an antimicrobial enclosure that mitigates the growth of harmful bacteria. They also come with a fanless cooling system to keep your computers from circulating air.

Tangent sanitary medical computers

3 Sanitation Features That Medical Computers Need

What’s at the top of your checklist when looking for new medical computers? Performance is probably near the top. Your doctors need fast and reliable equipment that can perform a variety of duties. But while performance is crucial to the efficacy of your computers, there’s another area worth considering: sanitation.

Multiple doctors and staff work with computers within a day. These computers can quickly and accidentally become a site for cross contamination within the hospital. This can lead to nosocomial infections, or worse. Tangent designs their medical computers to reduce these risks, prioritizing their sanitation features to help keep hospitals safe.

Antimicrobial Coating

Multiple people use a medical computer on any given day. Whether they are in a patient’s room or nursing station, medical staff routinely share this equipment. While sanitary precautions can help stop the spread of germs on these devices, these precautions can only go so far. That’s why Tangent includes an antimicrobial coating on all of their medical computers.

This antimicrobial coating is spread evenly over the surfaces of a medical computer. It mitigates the growth of harmful pathogens, preventing them from thriving upon contact. This can help reduce the risks imposed by traditional computers in the hospital. 

Fanless Cooling System For Medical Computers

One of the biggest reasons why other computers are not used in sensitive rooms such as the operating room are because of their fans. These fans are crucial to cooling off the computer, but have the negative effect of circulating bacteria and dust all around a room. This can cause potential health hazards for patients undergoing a surgery, and also cause wear and tear on the computer.

Medical grade computer for operating room

Best Medical Grade Computer For Operating Room Use

Operating rooms need to be sterile. While all areas of the hospital benefit from sanitary conditions, Operating rooms demand them. There is no room for error when your surgeons are at work. The wrong medical computer can pose serious risks in the operating room. From harboring bacteria to circulating dust, a non-operating designed medical grade computer can easily cause more harm than good. 

Tangent has designed the optimal medical grade computer for use in operating rooms, with features that help keep patients safe.

Fanless Medical Computer For Hospital Use

One of the biggest reasons why your surgeons may not want a medical grade computer in their operating room is their fans. Most computers rely on a fan to cool off the computer’s components. This fan, while vital, has the negative side effect of circulating air throughout the body of the computer and room it is in.

The result of this is that the medical computer becomes a dumping ground for the operating room’s dust. This dust not only reduces the efficacy of the medical grade computer’s fan, and can lead to overheating and long term damage. But this heated-up dust also acts as a breeding ground for bacteria.

The fan then circulates the new bacteria throughout the air in the room. For obvious reasons, this simply cannot happen in an operating room. Bacteria can find its way into a patient’s body and negatively affect their recovery, potentially leading to a re-hospitalization.

m24t medical grade computer
Tangent M24T Medical Computer

Tangent has solved this issue by using a fanless cooling system to cool every medical grade computer they create. The M24T medical grade computer utilizes a passive cooling system that keeps the unit cool without using outside air. The lack of a fan means the M24T also has a solid body, and does not circulate air whatsoever. This helps reduce dust build up in the unit, keeping your operating rooms cleaner and safer.

Antibacterial Medical Computer

On top of having a fanless cooling system, each medical grade computer from Tangent also has an antimicrobial casing. This casing reduces the risk of cross contamination in the operating room by mitigating the growth of bacteria on its surfaces. Surgeons can feel safer while performing a surgery knowing that their medical computer is not causing massive bacteria growth.

Tangent E24B Medical Grade Computer

Hot-Swap Batteries Inside Medical Computers

When one emergency occurs, the last thing your hospital staff needs is another. Sadly, some emergencies can’t be helped. Natural disasters, fires, and power outages are becoming increasingly common and can strike at nearly any time. When these sorts of emergencies do occur, your hospital’s utilities could be jeopardized. 

Hospitals utilize backup generators to keep their most vital operations flowing during power outages. However these generators cannot supply power to every point in a hospital that needs it. Some services must be stopped. With the Medix E22B, power outages don’t mean a stop in service.

The Medix E22B features hot-swap battery technology. The medical computer can be outfitted with three removable batteries. These batteries can be swapped out to charge on a separate charging dock throughout the day, keeping the E22B operating on a constant basis. The E22B also features a barrel plug for traditional wall outlets.

During a blackout, the E22B medical computer can run up 24 hourswithout needing to draw power from emergency sources. This can give your doctors ample time to see the remainder of their patients, finish vital work, and help perform emergency services.

Antimicrobial Medical Computers

The last thing your equipment should do during an emergency is cause more harm than good. Every medical computer from Tangent is designed with an antimicrobial coating. This coating reduces the spread of pathogens on the surface of the medical computer by mitigating the growth of bacteria. This can help create a safer, cleaner emergency room in your hospital.

Lightning Fast Solid State Drives

Medical software can be slow to load. That’s not to say it’s designed poorly, but rather that there is a lot to load. Medical records, patient information, and machine-learning tools all require time and disk space to adequately load. But this process can be greatly sped up with a NVMe solid state drive inside your medical computers. The Medix E22B from Tangent features a M.2 solid state drive. This slot allows your medical software programs to load up to 15 times faster than with traditional hard drive solutions.

fanless medical computers from Tangent

Why Medical Grade Computers Need To Be Fanless

During these hot summer months, turning on a fan can help you cool off. Fans are everywhere, from residential homes to restaurants and even offices. But while fans certainly have a place in our lives, there is one area they simply don’t belong: medical grade computers. In addition to cooling people off, fans have the side effect of moving dust, allergens, and pathogens throughout the air. When it comes to the hospital, fans inside computers can potentially cause a number of health issues. Fanless medical grade computers reduce these risks by using a passive cooling system that is safer and more hygienic for hospital use.

Why Medical Grade Computers Should Not Have Fans

Nearly every computer utilizes some form of cooling system. These cooling systems help cool off a computer’s CPU as it works, preventing long term damage from overheating. Most computers utilize a simple fan-based cooling system that circulates air through the computer’s chassis to cool off the CPU. While this works fine for some cases, there are some severe drawbacks to fans.

Firstly, fans circulate the air in a room. Even small fans attached to medical grade computers circulate some amount of air in a room. Particles in the air such as dust and pathogens end up caught in a computer’s chassis, where they can accumulate and grow. These pathogens are given a warm place to grow before being released into the air. For places such as the recovery room or surgery room, this can be a potential hazard to patients.

T-13 Medical Tablet From Tangent
T-13 Fanless Medical Tablet From Tangent

Dust buildup also affects the performance of your medical grade computers. In order for a fan-based cooling system to work, air needs to be able to flow freely in and out of a unit. When dust builds up, the airflow is restricted and the computer’s CPU is unable to cool down. Even a small buildup can cause a big temperature increase for a CPU. This can lead to long term damage and a shortened lifespan for your medical computers, and also cause your IT department to schedule regular cleanings.

Fanless Medical Grade Computers

Tangent M24T Fanless Medical Computer

All of the problems with fan-based cooling systems can be easily avoided with fanless medical grade computers. A computer like the M24T from Tangent features a fanless cooling system. This passive cooling system keeps the M24T’s CPU from overheating without needing to circulate air. This passive cooling system also allows this medical grade computer to have virtually no openings in its chassis, mitigating dust buildup inside the unit.
