06 Mar Merge Healthcare unveils diagnostic mammography tool
Milwaukee, Wis. – Merge Healthcare has released a new medical imaging product for mammography workstations that is designed to enhance the image reading capabilities of radiologists.
According to Merge, the vendor-neutral product, marketed as Merge Mammo(TM) version 7.0, will make possible simultaneous display and reading of images on devices ranging from ultrasound to digital mammography, regardless of which vendor’s acquisition device is used to secure the images. The company also said the product will ease the forthcoming transition to digital mammography.
Merge, a medical imaging software and services provider, said Mammo would improve the reading of images with full-resolution viewing. In full resolution, a digital breast image is larger than a computer screen, and radiologists must pan across the image to view the image in its entirety. The process is time-consuming and increases the risk of missing portions of the read.
The new technology provides a more fluid reading method, allowing the radiologist to move from section to section and review the entire image. It also contains a picture archiving and communication system to improve workflow and the retrieval of prior images and information.
