Mercury Computer Systems Inc. has designed its medical OEM product line to be "3D to the Core" -- a new platform designed to provide integrated 3D visualization for diagnostic workflow. The Visage imaging and visualization software and solutions will be showcased at the 91st Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, Illinois, November 27 through December 1.
Diagnostic workflow users are confronting an explosion of data. Conventional two-dimensional diagnostic techniques and the PACS (picture archiving and communications systems) that were designed to support them are becoming obsolete. Mercury's Visage imaging product line for medical OEMs has been designed to bring 3D imaging to the core of the workflow. This platform is designed to accelerate image processing and enable increased productivity and efficiency. According to Mercury, its acquisition and reconstruction technologies deliver orders-of-magnitude reduction in reconstruction time over existing technologies, helping to ensure that the reconstruction process does not become the throughput bottleneck in the diagnostic workflow.
The Visage CS Thin Client/Server solution expands 3D viewing capabilities to multiple users in the hospital and at remote sites, using existing PCs and laptops. This thin client/server plugs into legacy hospital IT systems and can eliminate reliance on expensive 3D workstations.
"As part of this re-architecting, we have renamed our products with a unified brand: Visage," said Marcelo Lima, vice president of Commercial Imaging and Visualization, Mercury Computer Systems. "Visage represents one highly integrated family of technologies, products, and solutions across the diagnostic workflow, designed from the ground up to empower 3D to the core."
The Visage product line provide the following features:
Mercury will hold demonstrations of its Visage 3D to the Core imaging and visualization software and systems solutions, including the Visage WS Workstation, Visage CS Thin Client/Server, Visage VR Volume Rendering, Visage RT Image Reconstruction, and Visage PACs. Mercury will also demonstrate CT image reconstruction on the Cell Broadband Engine processor. As one of the most powerful multi-core chips available, the Cell BE processor provides high performance for medical imaging applications.
Visit Mercury in the South Building, Hall A, Section 3, Booth 1912 at RSNA, November 27 through December 1. Or, for more information on Mercury's 3D to the Core imaging solutions, and to view the CT image reconstruction demo using the Cell BE processor, visit www.mc.com/RSNA2005.
