Acuo Technologies LLC and NU Design Medical Technologies Inc. have announced the incorporation of Acuo’s DICOM Services Grid technology into NU Design’s Mammography Manager.
The cooperative effort will reportedly allow Mammography Manager to automatically route, based on content, to a reading physician without manual intervention. The resulting system will enable content-aware DICOM routing, storage virtualization, JPEG, encryption and storage virtualization, the companies said.
Acuo also announced the release of Version 5.0 of its DICOM Services Grid, which will reportedly enable end users to better reconcile, distribute, and maintain medical image data to improve workflow, efficiency and reliability. Upgrades include superior lossless and lossy image compression quality, additional modality worklist tags and VPN-less encryption support for high demand by multi-site customers.
