Imorgon Medical, a leading provider of integrated ultrasound picture archiving and communications systems (PACS), announced today that The Johns Hopkins Health System has acquired the Imorgon Ultrasound PACS for the review and diagnosis of ultrasound exams at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The announcement was made here at the Annual Meeting of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), March 24-27, 2010. The Imorgon software solution was selected by the Ultrasound Section, the PACS and the IT groups at Johns Hopkins.
“Even with recent advances in ultrasound technology and PACS, many ultrasound labs and imaging departments need advanced ultrasound image management and display functionality,” said Lloyd Kreuzer, president and CEO, Imorgon Medical. “Offering comprehensive image management and display capabilities and streamlined workflow, the Imorgon solution enables labs to replace legacy ultrasound PACS with an integrated solution that offers new capabilities with no loss of data.”
Performing over 24,000 examinations each year, The Johns Hopkins Hospital’s Ultrasound division is part of the institution’s Department of Radiology. Its world-renowned physicians and staff members focus on blending the latest in radiological technology with specialized expertise to diagnose and treat their patients.
Optimized for viewing ultrasound studies within an integrated image viewing environment, Imorgon Ultrasound PACS creates an informed and efficient diagnostic platform. The scalable software solution displays all ultrasound images – clips and still – instantaneously and in acquisition order. Reducing the number of clicks to review an exam and complete each diagnosis, the clips start automatically and play simultaneously.
