Original Press Release:
Mercury Computer Systems to Demonstrate New Clinical Applications for its Visage Product Family at ECR 2007
CHELMSFORD, Massachussetts and FUERTH, Germany, March 6- Breakthrough Levels of Image Quality and Advanced 3D Capabilities Accelerate the Medical Diagnostic Workflow
Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) will showcase its entire
Visage(TM) product family with integrated clinical applications, at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, Austria, March 9 to 13.
Mercury's revolutionary 3D to the Core platform empowers the transformation of the medical imaging workflow, from acquisition, reconstruction, and visualization, to distribution and management. Mercury will demonstrate image quality and performance breakthroughs now required to cope with the increasing amount of data generated from modern 3D modalities; as well as enhanced 3D capabilities, including a Cardiac Analysis Option, which, at the click of a mouse, enables clinicians to access advanced functionalities such as coronary artery analysis within the workflow of the image distribution system.
"Clinical applications such as cardiac CT and CT/PET require more powerful image management and visualization systems," said Keith Dreyer, M.D., Ph.D., and Vice-Chairman of Radiology - Informatics at Massachusetts General Hospital and Assistant Professor of Radiology at the Harvard Medical School. "Mercury is developing leading-edge medical imaging solutions that are capable of processing and managing the ever-increasing amounts of 2D, 3D, and even 4D data, thus optimizing image quality and the diagnostic workflow."
Mercury's advanced Visage CS Thin Client/Server solution now comprises integrated 3D functionalities including a Cardiac Analysis Option, featuring quantitative and visual analysis of cardiac dynamics using 4D multi-slice CT data to assess functional parameters, as well as coronary artery analysis. All functional key parameters can be assessed directly within the PACS workflow, thus optimizing the efficiency and performance of the cardiac analysis.
The new release of Visage PACS, Mercury's web-based, scalable, enterprise-grade image management system, will include compelling new features that enable flexible arrangement of multiple viewers, powerful new options for side-by-side comparison, as well as hanging protocols.
Visit Mercury at ECR 2007 in EXPO C, Booth #343, March 9 to 13, or visit mc.com/3Dcore for more information on Mercury's 3D to the Core imaging solutions.
