May 21, 2015  Blackford Analysis announced that its Smart Localizer product will be officially launched at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

Designed for users of Philips picture archiving and communications systems (PACS), including Philips iSite 3.6 and IntelliSpace 4.4 PACS, the Blackford Smart Localizer facilitates radiologic comparison of imaging findings across magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography/CT (PET/CT) studies by automating volume registration of current and prior imaging studies before the radiologist reads.

Blackford initially revealed details of Smart Localizer in late 2014, and the company has conducted final developments and testing in the run-up to SIIM. The software is designed to overcome the differences that typically exist between comparison studies performed on different modalities and by different vendors.

The Blackford Smart Localizer can increase radiologist productivity by 10-20 percent per study, when reading comparison studies. For particularly challenging exams, like lung nodule comparisons, the productivity increase may reach 50 percent. This leads to improved clinical confidence, customer service and reading capacity, ultimately resulting in both improved quality of care and incremental revenue.
