Breast imaging enhancements spearhead latest release
Visage Imaging Inc. (“Visage”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd. (ASX: PME), announced today that they have released version 7.1.5 of the Visage® 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform, including optimized navigation and tools, and significant speed enhancements to Visage 7’s already industry-leading performance with massive digital mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) studies. These new features further strengthen Visage 7’s impressive breast imaging capabilities, providing a formidable single platform for enterprise imaging. Visage 7 enables enterprise imaging with amazingly fast, thin-client, server-side processing technology, as well as simple mobile access to imaging results via Visage Ease(SM).
Visage 7 continues to set the standard for enterprise imaging, enabling even the largest imaging organizations and health systems to dramatically transform the interpretation and delivery of medical images. Using a single powerful viewer, Visage 7 enables the multi-modality display of a full complement of radiology, cardiology and non-DICOM images, including comprehensive support for breast imaging workflow. For example, two DBT studies—a current plus prior —represents 12 Gigabytes of data when loaded via video card for the real-time display of full-fidelity data. Due to Visage 7’s ultrafast server-side processing, the entire set of studies can be displayed in seconds even using cable-broadband network connections. In contrast, legacy PACS requires the 12 GB of DBT data to be transferred in advance to the reading workstation for radiologist interpretation. Best case transfer speeds of 12 GB of data over a 100 Mbps link is more than 16 minutes, and over a 1 Gbps link, more than 1.5 minutes. This legacy network transfer has to be performed predictively, off hours, and saturates at-risk networks. Instead, Visage 7 provides nearly immediate display. Visage enables imaging enterprises to stay ahead, providing radiologists and referring physicians nearly immediate access to DBT studies as they are needed, without artificial limitations to workflow.
Visage 7.1.5 includes the following enhancements:
In support of the Visage 7.1.5 rollout, Visage is pleased to announce the “Visage 7.1.5 Private Screening”, a tailored series of customer-focused web conferences. Each Visage 7 customer will be offered an exclusive, one-on-one introduction and demonstration of Visage 7.1.5. Customers are encouraged to contact Visage at support(at)visageimaging(dot)com, noting “Visage 7.1.5 Private Screening”, with their preferred date and time for their personalized web conference.
In addition, Visage Imaging will be exhibiting at the upcoming Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2014 meeting, May 15-17, Long Beach, CA (Visage Imaging Booths 331/333). To schedule a priority demonstration and/or meeting, please click here.
