Fujifilm Synapse Mobility 3.0 Now Available In the United States

3.0 provides on-the-go access to images and information and promotes physician collaboration

June 14, 2012 — Fujifilm Medical Systems USA Inc. announced the availability of Synapse Mobility 3.0, a new zero-footprint application with improved features that enable access to Fujifilm's suite of Synapse products, from handheld mobile devices to Macintosh- or Windows-based PCs. Using the Web browser or mobile device of their choice, radiologists and referring physicians can now review patient images and information available in Synapse PACS (picture archiving and communications system) and Synapse RIS (radiology information system), increasing accessibility to patient information and improving workflow.

The new version recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for diagnostic use on Apple devices. "Synapse Mobility 3.0 is all about convenience, and clinicians lead hectic lives where reading from remote locations is almost always required," said Jim Morgan, VP of medical informatics for Fujifilm. "It was our goal to provide radiologists and referring physicians with on-the-go access to the images and information stored in Synapse PACS and Synapse RIS for diagnostic review, and we have made this a reality for iPad and iPhone users."

The new version also includes a collaboration feature designed to foster greater communication between professionals by allowing clinicians to consult in real-time. The collaboration feature will allow physicians to bring information to their patients and ultimately aide in consultation during clinical situations, such as the communication between physicians, referring clinicians and patients, using the Web browser or mobile device of their choice. Synapse Mobility 3.0 will remove the device barrier between users and allow open collaboration.

Synapse Mobility 3.0 also includes several upgrades to the user functionality including improved visual layouts and reference lines. It provides advanced viewing capabilities for physicians to view 3-D images as well as to be able to zoom, window and level, and use MIP/MPR just as they would do at a clinical workstation. Easily uploaded on a variety of products, Mobility is readily deployed because it is browser-independent and scalable, providing facilities with virtually an unlimited number of user licenses.
