Mercury showcases enhanced PACS workflow solutions at RSNA 2006

30 November 2006

Chelmsford Mass., USA.  Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) is demonstrating its enhanced Visage "3D to the Core" product family at the Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) this week. It will show advanced functionalities, new clinical applications, and breakthrough levels of image quality and performance that will further facilitate the 3D visualization transformation throughout the medical imaging workflow.

The Mercury Visage CS thin client/server features fast study loading with 2,000-slice dataset start times measured in seconds. It includes an optional Cardiac Analysis Package that allows easy review and automatic quantification of cardiac dynamics using 4D multi-slice CT data to assess functional parameters, as well as coronary artery analysis.

Clinicians can access advanced functionalities, such as left ventricular analysis and coronary artery analysis, within the workflow of the image distribution system (PACS), at the click of a mouse. Furthermore, Visage CS now includes improved tools for bone removal and vessel segmentation. These advanced features easily allow the removal of the bone or can track the vessel with only a few clicks, as well as generating boneless MIPs and volume-rendered images. All of this is displayed with the highest quality, highest performance visualization and rendering available in the industry.

"Mercury's advanced imaging and visualization solutions help radiologists and clinicians to quickly and easily navigate through 2D, 3D, and even 4D medical imaging data, to present the most consistent image data using analytical tools for quick and accurate diagnoses," said Marcelo Lima, Vice President and General Manager of Commercial Imaging and Visualization at Mercury Computer Systems. "The scalable server-side DICOM back-end ensures reliable, consistent, and efficient access to all image data. Thus, our Visage software provides all the capabilities of a full-blown medical workstation to any client in the hospital, supporting instantaneous advanced visualization from modalities."

Mercury recently was granted clearance by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to market Visage PACS and Visage CS products as medical devices in the United States.
