New PET/CT Solution Designed for Speedier Workflow

April 5, 2007 - Merge Healthcare today announced the release of its Merge PET/CT Workstation software, a vendor-neutral solution designed to accommodate standard methods used to read images obtained by PET and CT, targeting the need to maximize PET/CT reading and reporting through advanced imaging capabilities with faster workflow.
Merge PET/CT provides reading tools such as 3-D volume rendering and hot-spot scout, and reporting tools such as SUV (Standard Uptake Value) calculations and configurable colormaps. Workflow is enhanced by layouts that mimic PACS layouts split across dual monitors in panoramic mode. This is engineered to allow simultaneous review of CT, PET Corrected, PET Uncorrected, PET/CT Fused and MIP images. Rigid registration between images allows simultaneous navigation through reportedly all data sets. Merge PET/CT also allows for DICOM connectivity to PACS solutions to facilitate image receiving and storage.
