FUJIFILM Releases Breast Imaging Diagnostic Workstation

FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA Inc. introduced the Breast Imaging Diagnostic Workstation (BIDW), which is available for any U.S. facility that has implemented Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM).

The BIDW is being introduced specifically to complement Fujifilm’s Computed Radiography for Mammography (FCRm) solution and provide better workstation interpretation capabilities for facilities that may use another vendor’s PACS, said the company. Delivering full Synapse PACS functionality, this new standalone workstation is designed to be a supplement to any facility’s existing PACS and meet the market need for more clinically and operationally advanced systems to support breast imaging.

The workstation also offers the ability to support CAD, MQSA overlays and provides Fujifilm’s patented reading protocol technology for efficient reading workflow. Upon image acquisition all FFDM studies are automatically sent to the BIDW where image display is available in seconds and prior studies can be accessed for comparison, all ensuring optimal operational efficiency is reportedly maintained for radiologists. This functionality is not limited to breast imaging, because it is Synapse PACS. Furthermore, the BIDW can be completely integrated with all other radiology systems, including any mammography specific reporting systems, RIS and PACS.
