September 1, 2011 — Three Palm Software, Totoku and U.S. Electronics announced they have signed a partnership agreement to develop a package of Totoku MS31i2 monitors with the WorkstationOne software from Three Palm. The monitors are capable of 9-megapixel (MP) resolution when driven by software that implements the independent sub-pixel drive (ISD) mechanism. WorkstationOne will provide this capability.
The software is a full-featured breast imaging workstation, with an emphasis on efficient reviewing workflow and expert viewing methodologies such as Tabar’s systematic viewing masks. It supports information health exchange (IHE) mammography image profile and the display of computer-aided detection (CAD) markers as well as grayscale softcopy presentation state (GSPS) graphic annotation.
WorkstationOne is a software product that can be installed on an off-the-shelf general purpose computer with one or two grayscale, high-resolution monitors and one color monitor. The grayscale, high-resolution monitors have to be U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared for use in the United States.
Combined with ISD technology enables a 3 MP-based liquid crystal display (LCD) to render 9 mega sub-pixel images, exceeding the current standards of care for primary mammography diagnosis. The MS31i2 is FDA 510(k) cleared for the use of digital mammography.
