New thin client server from Mercury Computer Systems supports 4D Cardiac CT data

Mercury Computer Systems : 20 April, 2007  (New Product)
Advanced tools and workflow improvements offered by Mercury Computer Systems' Visage product family is being showcased at the 2007 Society ffor Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) event.
Mercury Computer Systems is presenting its Visage product family with advanced tools for 3D and 4D diagnostic reading and visualisation as well as workflow improvements at (SIIM).

The Mercury Visage CS Thin Client/Server solution allows 2D, 3D and even 4D medical imaging data to be accessed throughout the entire hospital network as well as from external clients.

In this way, the required processing and visualisation capabilities can be shared effectively by radiologists and physicians across the entire healthcare workflow, using standard PCs or notebooks with no additional memory, processing power, or graphics acceleration required.

Mercury's Visage CS Thin Client Server now features advanced tools for 3D and 4D diagnostic reading and visualisation that are not bound to specific workstations, but become available directly within the PACS workflow anywhere in the hospital enterprise.

Bone removal for CT runoff studies automatically identifies leg bone, pelvic bone and spine in runoff studies in order to hide these structures in 3D display.

As a result, complete vessel trees can be easily and accurately displayed, for example in a 3D MIP without the bone blocking the view.

Additionally, Visage CS now features a new vessel tool-card that combines multiple tools in a unified way for defining vessel paths, tracing vessel paths, doing curved planar reformatting or straightened-out lumen view.

Thus, Mercury's Thin Client Server solution greatly enhances the CT angiography workflow.

Mercury's fully integrated Cardiac Analysis Option now features 4D Cardiac CT data support including coronary vessel analysis as well as left ventricle functional analysis.

Visage PACS, Mercury's web based image management system, now comprises powerful and flexible hanging protocols and new functions that enable flexible arrangement of multiple viewers.

The automatic generation of thick slices is now possible even for systems that do not include a Visage CS 3D option.

This can reduce the image load for an image distribution system while keeping the original information available for diagnostic purposes.

The Visage Cardiac Analysis Option is currently pending legal approvals as medical device.

The 2007 Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) event runs from 7 to 10 June 2007 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI, USA.
