AUGUST 14, 2007--Mercury Computer Systems (Chelmsford, MA, USA) has announced the formation of Visage Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary for the life sciences and medical businesses. As an independent operating entity, Visage Imaging will deliver Mercury's expertise in advanced visualization and its expanding portfolio of imaging and visualization products and services to of international OEM and clinical partners. For example, Visage, Mercury's end-to-end image management and distribution line, will be offered along with amira, its multifaceted software framework that enables users to visualize, manipulate, and analyze complex data sets for biomedical imaging research.
Visage Imaging's customizable solutions enhance the medical imaging workflow, with advanced tools for 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D image interpretation, postprocessing, 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, vice chairman of radiology--informatics at Massachusetts General Hospital and assistant professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School. "Mercury's 3-D-enabled thin-client technology provides an integrated clinical workflow with instant access to all diagnostic image data and removes the technical barriers between different modalities and clinical departments."
Clinical partners around the world are collaborating with Visage Imaging, including the department of radiology and nuclear medicine at the Charite - Universitatsmedizin Berlin, Campus Benjamin Franklin. Scientists and engineers from both entities are working together to optimize the visualization and management of medical image data for modern imaging procedures such as computed tomography angiography and whole-body magnetic resonance imaging.
