A Diagnostics & Imaging Week
In addition to unveiling hundreds of new products at the Radiological Society of North America's (RSNA; Oak Brook, Illinois) 93rd annual meeting in Chicago this week, several medical imaging companies are also using the conference to disclose new agreements.
One such company, Visage Imaging (Carlsbad, California), a subsidiary of Mercury Computer Systems (Chelmsford, Massachusetts), reported a worldwide integration agreement with Agfa HealthCare (Belgium), a provider of IT-enabled clinical workflow and diagnostic imaging solutions.
Agfa will integrate the Visage CS Thin Client/Server into its IMPAX product line to provide enterprise-wide advanced visualization capabilities based on 3D thin-client technology.
Visage also reported an agreement with Siemens Medical Solutions (Hoffman Estates, Illinois) to deliver advanced 3D visualization and image distribution solutions to hospitals and imaging centers worldwide.
Siemens will integrate Visage's advanced 3D thin client platform into its SIENET Magic product line.
Compressus (Washington) said that E-Rad Solutions (Palm Beach Gardens, Florida) has selected its MEDxConnect system to fuel its entry into the teleradiology market. E-Rad said it would implement the MEDxConnect technology on behalf of its first client, a three-hospital group in Florida.
The MEDxConnect acts as a communications hub, enabling various PACS, HIS, RIS and other data information systems to connect and communicate across the Enterprise, according to Compressus. The system helps control the flow of images, reports, messages, standard patient demographics and other data for diagnosis and treatment planning of a patient between otherwise independent and disparate systems, the company said.
