Mercury Computer Systems (Chelmsford, Massachusetts) reported the formation of Visage Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary, for the life sciences and medical businesses.
As an independent operating entity, Mercury said that Visage Imaging will be better positioned to deliver Mercury’s distinct expertise in advanced visualization, and its expanding portfolio of imaging and visualization products and services, to a growing roster of international OEM and clinical partners. Visage Imaging’s customizable solutions are designed to enhance medical imaging workflow, with advanced tools for 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D image interpretation, post-processing, management and distribution that are not bound to specific workstations and become accessible directly within the PACS workflow.
“There’s a growing need for transparent access to 2-D, 3-D and even 4-D medical imaging data from anywhere inside or outside the hospital enterprise,” said Keith Dreyer, M, PhD, and vice-chairman of Radiology — Informatics at Massachusetts General Hospital and assistant professor of radiology at the Harvard Medical School (both Boston). “Mercury’s 3D-enabled thin-client technology provides a completely integrated clinical workflow with instant access to all diagnostic image data — and removes the technical barriers between different modalities and clinical departments.”
“We’re excited about the opportunities for growth across many market segments of life sciences visualization, and of the expanded capabilities we’ll provide our customers,” said Marcelo Lima, president of Visage Imaging. “We bring 20+ years’ experience and expertise in the design of diagnostic medical imaging solutions to our customers, with a dedicated team of professionals who are proudly committed to ‘visioneering science for life’ and to improving the quality of life for all.”
Mercury Computer said it has made its entire Visage product line for medical OEMs to be 3-D to the Core, a medical imaging platform that supports the transformation of the diagnostic process from “slice-by-slice” visualization to fully integrated, seamless 3-D visualization.
