Merge Healthcare Releases Updated DICOM Toolkit

November 19, 2008 - Merge Healthcare today released its MergeCOM-3 Version 3.9, which adds the latest DICOM standard supplements to its DICOM toolkit.

Merge said medical imaging software developers depend on MergeCOM-3 to jump start product innovation by providing much of the code needed to incorporate the DICOM standard. This standard is the basic "language" by which all medical imaging devices and systems communicate, and it is constantly improving to match the clinical needs of the industry.

Version 3.9 contains support for important new standard supplements for nuclear medicine (supplement 117), pathology (supplement 122) and ophthalmology (supplement 130), supporting the broader adoption of DICOM into new imaging areas. In addition, it provides even more flexibility for developers to work in different programming platforms, specifically in the .Net and 64-bit environments. Beyond the updated clinical standards, developers reportedly rely on Merge to provide these within each development platform they might use to write the new code. Merge has continued to update toolkit capabilities into existing and new development platforms, and now includes availability in Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Vista, Linux and Unix operating systems; and C/C++, C#/.Net and Java programming platforms.

The most recent version of the MergeCOM-3 toolkit and related documentation is available for download at www.mergecom3.com.
