Fujifilm Introduces Breast Imaging Diagnostic Workstation

Delivers Full Synapse(R) PACS Capabilities in the Form of a Workstation for

Digital Breast Imaging

STAMFORD, Conn., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujifilm Medical Systems USA, Inc. announced today that it is introducing the Breast Imaging Diagnostic Workstation (BIDW). Available for any U.S. facility that has implemented Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM), the BIDW is being introduced specifically to complement Fujifilm's Computed Radiography for Mammography (FCRm) solution and provide better workstation interpretation capabilities for facilities that may use another vendor's PACS. Delivering full Synapse(R) PACS functionality, this new standalone workstation is designed to be a supplement to any facility's existing PACS, and meet the market need for more clinically and operationally advanced systems to support breast imaging.

"As more and more facilities adopt digital mammography, there is an increased need for PACS that provide the specialized features and advanced technologies that are so vital to the interpretation of full field digital mammography exams," explained Jim Morgan, Fujifilm's Director of Network Systems. "Synapse is an advanced PACS that is uniquely capable of providing the diagnostic and clinical tools that radiologists demand for FFDM. The Breast Imaging Diagnostic Workstation will now enable customers that might already have an existing PACS to benefit from full Synapse capabilities and additional features specifically designed for digital mammography when interpreting their FFDM studies."

Fujifilm's Breast Imaging Diagnostic Workstation (BIDW) was designed with not only clinical, but operational and integration needs in mind. In addition to providing Fujifilm's renowned image quality, it also offers the ability to support CAD, MQSA overlays and provides Fujifilm's patented reading protocol technology for efficient reading workflow. Upon image acquisition all FFDM studies are automatically sent to the BIDW where image display is available in seconds and prior studies can be accessed for comparison, all ensuring optimal operational efficiency is maintained for radiologists. This functionality is not limited to breast imaging, because it is Synapse PACS. Furthermore, the BIDW can be completely integrated with all other radiology systems, including any mammography specific reporting systems, RIS and PACS.

Fujifilm's Synapse Breast Imaging Diagnostic Workstation will be available in the U.S. in June 2008.
