Merge Enhances eFilm Workstation for Improved Diagnosis

December 4, 2007 - Merge Healthcare introduced eFilm Workstation version 3.0 diagnostic imaging software, including enhancements in a Gold version and a Platinum version that are designed to accelerate radiologist productivity; both are available as an update for existing eFilm Workstation customers.
The eFilm Workstation 3.0 Gold version includes new overlay features to refine the appearance and detail of annotated images, offering font management on display and print, font size annotations on printed films and customized handling of Mammo Markers. This version also features new SQL Express database, featuring 4 gigabyte capacity, four times higher than in previous versions. Media burning improvements offer the ability to write to CD or DVD, an updated media burning toolkit, more supported devices and the capability to include additional non-DICOM files on media.
Other enhancements include a thumbnail panel, which provides access to all related studies that can be "floating" or "docked" to any side, spine labeling, with pre-defined annotations and improved user configurability to handle multiframe images.
The 3.0 Platinum version features hanging protocols that enable automatic specification of order and location of images to facilitate efficient review, a hanging protocol builder, with support for relevant priors that enables customization of hanging protocols per user preferences and key images with support for Edit/Delete that permits rapid viewing of the most relevant images.
Other improvements include visualization services available for both server-based and stand-alone options and a new tool for determining Cardiothoracic Ratio (CTR), which is useful to determine whether cardiac diameter is within a normal range.

Artificial Intelligence Provides Faster, Clearer MRI Scans

A new artificial-intelligence-based approach to image reconstruction, called AUTOMAP, yields higher quality images from less data, reducing radiation doses for CT and PET and shortening scan times for MRI. Shown here are MR images reconstructed from the same data with conventional approaches, at left, and AUTOMAP, at right. Athinoula A.
