Developed for echocardiography, DIVO is a PACS software program that captures seemingly limitless-length videos with stereo Doppler audio. It is intended to replace conventional videotape recorders but with the added benefit of digitally archiving under the patients name, date of examination, and identification. In this manner, studies can be stored, transmitted, and reviewed electronically without being limited to short video segments with no audio. Standard Windows software is all that is required to review the studies.
