Meta Fusion Shows Multi-Site PACS, RIS Architecture

Meta Fusion's PACS and RIS architecture supports multi-site radiology workflow, multi-country localization, advanced integration with the OsiriX Macintosh DICOM viewer and more.

A distributed-server configuration drives distinctively fast and reliable multi-site PACS/RIS workflow. In striking contrast with today’s popular centralized hub and spoke configurations, Meta Fusion’s advanced image management architecture relies on multiple servers — typically one at each participating site — that collaborate across a network to integrate information, functioning as autonomous peers.

The major advantage to users is that if one server fails, the entire PACS/RIS solution does not stop functioning, disabling all imaging sites

An added advantage of this distributed server architecture is that the PACS/RIS solution becomes completely scalable, said the company.

To deliver a high-quality, cost-effective implementation, Meta Fusion’s full line of PACS solutions have always supported several viewers including the OsiriX DICOM viewer, an open-source, free-of-charge DICOM viewer offering functionalities that rival the most advanced proprietary viewers. The next-generation OsiriX technology is expected to receive FDA 510k-clearance in 2009.

Complementing this will be the debut of enhanced dictation and speech recognition features for the Macintosh platform across the Meta Fusion product line. This includes optimization of Dragon Naturally Speaking Medical Edition for integration into a RIS reading environment. Also being introduced is a corrective dictation feature that will enable radiologists to examine and correct transcription files remotely, supporting today’s growing distribution of workflow between specialized service providers.
