New agreement aids vision processing in hospitals

4 October 2007



3DR Laboratories and Visage Imaging have signed an agreement to provide advanced reading and post-processing services to healthcare organisations and hospitals.

3DR Laboratories will integrate Visage Imaging's Visage CS Thin Client/Server and Visage PACS Server into its product portfolio in order to provide internal and remote advanced 2D and 3D capabilities and services to healthcare enterprise customers.

Robert L Falk, founder and medical director of 3DR Laboratories, said: 'Together, our combined technologies will free hospitals and radiology centres to outsource 3D reconstructions of CT and MRI scans while still allowing staff the ability to further manipulate and distribute studies off of any PC platform. This approach virtually eliminates the need for costly, onsite, "Fat" workstations.'

The Visage CS Thin Client/Server and Visage PACS solution features advanced tools for 2D, 3D and 4D image interpretation, post-processing and distribution that are not bound to specific workstations, but become available directly within the PACS workflow anywhere in the hospital enterprise or via the internet and WAN. This will allow medical imaging data to be accessed throughout the hospital network and also from external clients via a secure connection.

'3DR brings to the market a much-needed service that allows healthcare enterprises that do not have the infrastructure to roll out 3D internally to take advantage of leading-edge technology and improve clinical care using remote collaboration and services,' said Marcelo Lima, president of Visage Imaging.
