Icon for NavigatorEnterprise Image Fetching & Routing

Navigator ensures existing medical imaging studies are available to enhance the diagnostic process by automating the retrieval and sharing of prior imaging studies across disparate clinical and enterprise imaging systems.

  • Identifies associated prior imaging studies that may reside on multiple systems.
  • Quickly identifies and facilitates movement of multiple studies to any number of disparate destinations.
  • Supports pre-fetch based DICOM archive migration-on-demand programs as well as primary reading.

How much better would your workflow be if it could do this?

  • Manage & direct image distribution & priors fetching workflows
  • Support unlimited DICOM sources & DICOM destinations
  • Monitor unlimited trigger sources: HL7, DICOM, or modality worklists (MWL)
  • Multiplex DICOM query & move requests
  • Aggregate, filter & consolidate DICOM query responses
  • Configure centrally via convenient web interfaces
  • Provide rapid, implementation-side configuration, scripting & filtering options
  • And much more…

Navigator is a collection of software applications that assist in the automation of fetching DICOM objects. Navigator applications focus on reliability, flexibility, and a simplified user experience.


  • Robust and scalable multi-source worklist monitor
  • Enterprise solution, centrally configured
  • Supports unlimited DICOM sources & destinations
  • Integrates with Compass for advanced enterprise-scale imaging solution

Automate Fetching & Retrieval

Navigator allows the user to automate the process of collecting information from multiple medical image archives and fetching relevant priors based on that information.

Monitor and Track Movement

Using built-in reporting systems, the user is able to determine exactly what has moved and what has not. Navigator ensures that exams are moved in a timely way and that they are available for use in their entirety on the target systems – all automatically.

High-Level Control

From start to finish, the goal of Navigator is to provide a complete and transparent view of the issues related to moving DICOM studies, plus provide options to automatically control and report the movement of the DICOM data in a simple, high-level way, freeing the user to concentrate on other tasks.

Legacy Archives

Navigator helps you deal with the challenges that legacy archives present for moving DICOM data, including:

  • Merger of two or more archives
  • Access to historical relevant priors
  • Mismatched patient/study information
  • Archive vendor proprietary issues
  • Private DICOM tag handling
  • Non-compliant/inconsistent DICOM data
  • Unknown size of the job
  • Uncertainty of completeness
  • Inability to validate the data moved
  • Excessive manual effort
  • Inability to pre-fetch relevant priors
  • Unresponsive support

Navigator runs on dedicated hardware or a virtual machine.

The latest release is Version 2.1.6, released Mar. 30, 2017.

Navigator Clients

What Clients are Saying

"Navigator allowed us to convert the studies necessary to improve patient care and lowered our migration costs by only migrating what we need. Our cardiologists and cardiac surgeons love that we can pull referential studies based on the EMR worklist."
Dan MarnachDir. of Technology, Avera Heart Hospital of S.D.
"Navigator works exactly as advertised... we are extremely satisfied."
Josh HammondDirector of IT, American Radiology Associates
"Navigator enabled us to reallocate a support resource that was spending almost six hours per day performing manual study lookups and transfers, to support our mammography reading workflow."
Brandon Hughes PACS Analyst, Austin Radiological Association
