Synapse 5 is Fujifilm’s next- generation, secure server-side technology that enables instant access of massive datasets

Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. is continuing its partnership with the American College of Radiology (ACR). Fujifilm provides enterprise imaging solutions, Synapse PACS and 3-D, to support dozens of ACR Education Center courses, providing a streamlined educational experience to roughly 1,000 attendees each year.

“We value our continued partnership with ACR. We believe when radiologists and imaging professionals are actively trained and educated using industry leading technology, they’ll set a higher standard for care when practices are applied in the workplace,” said Bill Lacy, Vice President of Medical Informatics at Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “As we approach 10 years of collaboration with ACR, we look forward to our joint expertise forming better-trained healthcare professionals and improving patient outcomes for years to come.”

Fujifilm and ACR‘s partnership began in 2009, when the two organizations first teamed up to enhance ACR’s comprehensive, interactive radiology courses offered through its education center.

“The ACR Education Center is one of the most technologically advanced training facilities in the world for radiologists. We are proud to work with vendors like Fujifilm to enable radiologists in the U.S. and abroad to review hundreds of cases using the latest technology, and use their skills to deliver the highest quality patient care,” said Vinay Sandhir, Senior Director, ACR Education Center.

ACR is currently upgrading to Fujifilm’s latest PACS, Synapse 5. Synapse 5 is Fujifilm’s next- generation, secure server-side technology that enables instant access of massive datasets. It works within the most popular browsers while using less bandwidth throughout the enterprise. Synapse 5 PACS will be integrated with the ACR Case Engine, ACR’s proprietary learning methodology, which provides attendees immediate, real-time feedback as they report their findings and progress through each course’s case library.

In addition to utilizing Synapse PACS, ACR has utilized Synapse 3D in the educational courses for performing advanced visualization workflows and accessing 3D rendered images. Synapse 3D is an enterprise-wide solution designed for use across multiple specialties including radiology, cardiology, surgery, leveraging seamless workflows within with Synapse 5 PACS.

ACR uses these technologies at its Education Center in Reston, Virginia and Australia, in classes that focus on Abdominal Imaging, Body and Pelvic MR, Cardiac MR, Emergency Radiology, High-Resolution CT of the Chest, MSK MR, Neuroradiology and more.
