Fujifilm Launches Synapse VNA Version 6.4 With Additional DICOM Web Support

September 8, 2017 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. recently introduced support for DICOM web services, including QIDO-RS and WADO-RS, in its Synapse Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) system with the launch of the latest version 6.4. Synapse VNA is an enterprise-wide medical information and image management solution that serves as a vendor-neutral, scalable, and organizationally aware storage and distribution system for DICOM and non-DICOM objects. The upgraded Synapse VNA 6.4 is designed to be a fast and extensible solution for web-based data access that supports RESTful web service implementations of DICOM query (QIDO-RS) and retrieve (WADO-RS) protocols.

According to the EMC Digital Universe with Research & Analysis by IDC Healthcare, over the next three years there is an anticipated annual growth of 48 percent in captured medical data. The requirements and standards for DICOM web are shifting to align with this anticipated growth and to support the needs of web clients.

Synapse VNA 6.4 supports this new standard for DICOM web, a means to query for, structure and transfer medical images between systems. This includes WADO-RS, a method by which a web client is able to retrieve DICOM objects that match a requested criterion, and QIDO-RS, a method by which a web client is able to query for DICOM objects that match specified parameters and returns a list of matching objects and the requested attributes.

The new DICOM standard is compatible with multiple workflow types, has a mature and stable infrastructure, can access and deliver massive data volumes, and is accessible by a broad consumer base. It meets today’s needs because it is simple to design and build and it uses web standards, such as HTTP(s), XML and JSON, which are universally supported by modern devices.
