Merge Healthcare has upgraded its Cedara I-ReadMammo vendor solution for digital breast imaging review, and is being featured at ECR 2009 this week.
Version 6.5 is built on over 10 years of continuous development, reportedly making it one of the longest running, non-proprietary mammography review software in the industry. Since mammography is a high volume area of radiology subject to its own set of regulations, the software for reviewing these images must be highly specialized. Experience in meeting these regulations, while also allowing for efficient review, is critical.
Merge Healthcare’s Cedara I-ReadMammo 6.5 supports 10-bit medical monitors, which display up to 1,024 simultaneous levels of gray versus the 256 offered by 8-bit monitors. Merge partnered with Barco, a global display and visualization company, for quality control in the development.
Along with 10-bit display support, Cedara I-ReadMammo provides further workflow enhancements like lesion contouring and image cross correlation. Features were also added to enhance serviceability, performance and printing. In total, Cedara I-ReadMammo 6.5 gives radiologists enhanced confidence in reading breast studies efficiently, according to Merge.
Cedara I-ReadMammo is available in both stand-alone and plug-in versions, giving healthcare IT vendors the flexibility to incorporate it directly into a PACS viewer or interface it with existing solutions.
