Laurel Bridge Software announces the introduction of a new “Immediate Mode” processing option in the release of version 2.1.35 of Compass, the sophisticated, rules-based DICOM Store and Forward Routing application for DICOM store jobs. This widely-requested feature enables Compass to promptly route and forward images while an incoming study is still being received, reducing study transfer latency and dramatically improving image workflow performance. Improved logging, expanded rules for tag-morphing and operator intervention support in hot folder handling are included in this release. For more information, read the official press release.
