A Diagnostics & Imaging Week
Merge Technologies (Milwaukee), doing business as Merge eFilm, reported the completion of its acquisition of AccuImage Diagnostics (San Francisco), a company developing software for advanced visualization, analysis and management of medical imaging data from medical imaging modalities.
The transaction was priced at $6 million in cash.
Richard Linden, Merge eFilm's president and CEO, said, "The clinical depth and capabilities of AccuImage will strengthen the Merge eFilm Fusion RIS/PACS value proposition to both our end user and OEM/VAR customers. When integrated into our Fusion RIS/PACS, these advanced visualization tools will be accessible throughout our customers' healthcare enterprise, bringing them a competitive advantage and new sources of revenue."
