Blackford Analysis Unveils Workflow Server

PACS and other viewers can now be rapidly enhanced with automatic registration without requiring major integration

Blackford Analysis Workflow Server

October 2, 2014 — Blackford Analysis announced the availability of Blackford Workflow Server, a standalone pre-processing server that provides informatics vendors with the ability to quickly and easily integrate Blackford’s productivity technology into their product offerings.

Blackford Analysis’ products work seamlessly within existing image viewers to enable instant comparison of multiple image studies with a single click. By calculating and storing alignments with imaging studies, all healthcare professionals can benefit from instant study comparison. Blackford’s powerful technology provides the ability to improve care and increase productivity by boosting image comparison efficiency by 20-50 percent.

Blackford Workflow Server removes the need for back-end engineering to allow rapid integration with any image viewer such as a picture archive and communications system (PACS), advanced visualization viewer or universal viewer. The server allows studies to be pre-processed automatically on acquisition and enables load balancing through deployment as a physical server, a virtual server or a service.

“Blackford Workflow Server provides a great opportunity for PACS vendors and other developers of image viewers to capitalize on the benefits of our image comparison software,” said Ben Panter, CEO, Blackford Analysis. “By effectively removing the requirement for back-end integration, the server allows implementation of Blackford’s full range of image comparison features in dramatically shorter timeframes.”

Blackford Workflow Server is fully DICOM compliant and produces non-proprietary DICOM objects.

(c) Coronary angiography, left anterior oblique projection with caudal angulation. (d) Three-dimensional image fusion helped refine diagnosis: perfusion deficits (*) were most likely caused by narrow first diagonal branch and its first, stented side branch.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
