August 7, 2008 - Merge Healthcare said today that Saint Francis Health System, a large multisite, multispecialty hospital operating throughout Tulsa, OK, has signed a contract to upgrade from its existing PACS to the Merge Fusion PACS MX 3.0, a recently released solution with bundled multimodality and vendor neutral workstation capabilities of Merge Mammo 7.10.
St. Francis is among the first in the U.S. to adopt a solution that provides a single workstation environment with single worklist capability for most general diagnostic imaging modalities including digital X-ray, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography as well as mammography images.
Fusion PACS MX aims to provide efficient workflow for imaging organizations, allowing studies to be assigned to radiologists regardless of geographic location and obviating the need for paper records. Merge Mammo is a multimodality, vendor neutral digital mammography workstation that displays and reads images from different acquisition devices, including digital mammography, ultrasound, MR and CT. Workflow is streamlined by bundling both radiology and mammography onto the same computer, including tracking, reporting, electronic document management, and speech recognition software, said the company.
