Merge Releases New Versions of Fusion PACS MX, Merge Mammo

May 20, 2008 - Merge Healthcare released Fusion PACS MX 3.0, featuring integrated Merge Mammo 7.10, the company’s digital mammography application, and introduced several new features designed to increase radiologist productivity, including study caching, viewing protocol enhancements and extended keyboard shortcuts.

Merge Mammo version 7.0 is a multimodality, vendor-neutral digital mammography workstation application. The system enables organizations to display and read images from different systems simultaneously (digital mammography, ultrasound, MR, CR, etc.) and to read all breast studies on a single workstation, regardless of which vendor’s acquisition device is used to secure the images.

The system includes enhanced full-resolution viewing, providing a fluid, step-through method enabling the radiologist to move from section to section in full resolution to ensure complete review of the entire 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.

Fusion PACS MX 3.0 features study caching, giving clinicians a way to select multiple studies and have them load locally, sequentially, in the background. This reportedly improves on on-demand loading, which begins downloading images only when a study is selected.

The solution also features added flexibility in protocol configuration, including support of viewing protocols with multiple views. Radiologists can configure a single viewing protocol for a CT abdomen and pelvis, for example, with their choice of a variety of different views: View 1) Soft tissue window presets, View 2) Lung window presents, 3) Bone window presents, Views 4-6) The preceding windows, but with prior studies added.
