Fujifilm Debuts Synapse VNA Version 6.2 at RSNA 2016

Latest release offers easy point-of-care visible light capture, enhanced integration with Epic

Fujifilm, Synapse VNA version 6.2, RSNA 2016

January 10, 2017 — The TeraMedica Division of Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. announced the release of Synapse VNA (vendor neutral archive) version 6.2, the next generation of its enterprise-wide medical information and image management solution, at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2016 conference and exhibition. RSNA 2016 was held Nov. 27 – Dec. 2 in Chicago. 

Synapse VNA is an application-neutral, highly-scalable content management system that allows for secure storage and access of all patient imaging contents across the enterprise. The latest version is equipped with robust workflow tools including Epic’s Haiku and Canto modules mobile application integration with Synapse VNA Connext Mobile, which allows seamless, secure capture of point-of-care visible light data in context at the touch of a button. For Epic users, diagnostic images and patient visit metadata are automatically passed into Synapse VNA, with no separate launch of the Connext Mobile application required, making workflow uninterrupted and more efficient. Images are stored directly to the VNA through Connext Mobile without the need to log into multiple applications or navigate patients outside of Epic. Eliminating the step to separately identify the patient reduces medical errors by preventing misidentifications, improves patient safety and saves clinicians time.

In addition, Synapse VNA Version 6.2 includes a new streamlined workflow tool into the user interface that provides a guided system setup, so organizations can quickly configure and easily customize their enterprise system to meet all their departmental needs. Options include customizing data flow and management around organizational constructs, storage policies, storage locations and/or DICOM devices. The tool also includes a graphical representation of the configuration hierarchy, so it’s easy to make changes, additions and duplications if necessary.

Figure 1: Examples of chest CT images of COVID-19 (+) patients and visualization of features correlated to COVID-19 positivity. For each pair of images, the left image is a CT image showing the segmented lung used as input for the CNN (convolutional neural network algorithm) model trained on CT images only, and the right image shows the heatmap of pixels that the CNN model classified as having SARS-CoV-2 infection (red indicates higher probability). (a) A 51-year-old female with fever and history of exposure to SARS-CoV-2. The CNN model identified abnormal features in the right lower lobe (white color), whereas the two radiologists labeled this CT as negative. (b) A 52-year-old female who had a history of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 and presented with fever and productive cough. Bilateral peripheral ground-glass opacities (arrows) were labeled by the radiologists, and the CNN model predicted positivity based on features in matching areas. (c) A 72-year-old female with exposure history to the animal market in Wuhan presented with fever and productive cough. The segmented CT image shows ground-glass opacity in the anterior aspect of the right lung (arrow), whereas the CNN model labeled this CT as negative. (d) A 59-year-old female with cough and exposure history. The segmented CT image shows no evidence of pneumonia, and the CNN model also labeled this CT as negative.
