Visage Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mercury Computer Systems, and Medicsight have entered into partnership to jointly develop an advanced CT colonography solution, which will be fully integrated with the Visage Thin Client platform.
Visage Imaging’s PACS and advanced visualization solutions are said to be capable of displaying and processing the ever-increasing amounts of 2D, 3D, and 4D data efficiently on standard computers connected through LAN, WAN, or the internet.
The planned CT colonography (CTC) application will be fully integrated into this platform, providing server-based performance and consistent data access across the entire healthcare enterprise. The CTC application becomes an integral part of the PACS infrastructure and workflow, thereby removing the need for costly, dedicated CTC workstations.
Marcelo Lima, president of Visage Imaging, said: This partnership reflects our commitment to providing advanced clinical applications that become available directly within the PACS workflow, and throughout the enterprise. The benefits of an integrated, thin client- based solution start with an optimized workflow inside the radiology department, and go all the way to enabling remote reading services and an enhanced service offering to their referral base.
