Merge Introduces Version 7.0.1 of Merge Mammo Diagnostic Mammography Solution

June 29, 2007 - Merge Healthcare today announced the release of Merge Mammo version 7.0.1, one of the industry's first multi-modality, vendor-neutral digital mammography workstation applications, which recently received the CE mark for commercial distribution in Europe.

The Merge Mammo system enables organizations to display and read images from different systems simultaneously (digital mammography, ultrasound, MR, CR) and to read all breast studies on a single workstation, regardless of which vendor's acquisition device is used to secure the images.

Version 7.0.1 Offers:

Enhanced full-resolution viewing-In full resolution, a digital breast image is larger than a computer screen. Radiologists must therefore pan across the image to view the image in its entirety. The process takes time and increases the likelihood that the radiologist will miss a portion of the read. Merge Mammo solution's new functionality provides a fluid, step-through method, enabling radiologists to move from section to section in full resolution to ensure complete review of the entire image.

Optimized screen "real estate" - Merge Mammo now incorporates new algorithm-driven isolation of the breast image. By automatically fitting the breast image into the display, radiologists immediately see the image at maximum size, and avoid the time and distraction of moving and manipulating images.

Enhanced Grayscale Inversion- Some radiologists use an inversion technique when reading images, converting black to white and white to black. Merge Mammo 7.0.1 offers a feature that enables conversion of white (the breast image) to black, while maintaining background (non-breast image) as black. This enhances the radiologist's ability to isolate potential problem areas more effectively when inverting images.
