Pro Medicus/Visage Imaging Signs Deal with Sydney-based Southern Radiology
Date:2/26/2010

ANDOVER, Mass., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Visage Imaging, Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd., (ASX: PME) today announced the signing of a $2 million agreement to provide its entire suite of software and services – including its new Visage 7 thin client PACS – to Sydney-based independent imaging provider Southern Radiology.

Southern Radiology is a rapidly growing independent radiology provider, with nine practices in the inner suburbs of Sydney. Imaging services include general and dental x-rays, fluoroscopy/screening, ultrasound, mammography with sub speciality services in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and multi-slice CT scans including Cardiac CT.

Visage will install its Visage 7 PACS, the company's next-generation thin client streaming digital imaging solution and newly released Version 7.0 RIS at all Southern Radiology practices. Once deployed, the solution will cater for the full range of Practice Management and Clinical reporting functions including primary diagnosis in both 2-dimensions (2D) and 3-dimensions (3D) as well as image archiving and distribution. The solution, by virtue of its thin client technology, will also enable Southern Radiology to be the first in NSW to provide referrers with the ability to remotely access, view and manipulate their patients' images in both 2D and 3D.

"We are delighted to be in business partnership with such an innovative organization as Southern Radiology," said Pro Medicus/Visage Imaging, Chief Executive Officer, David Chambers.  "This will be an excellent showcase for our entire suite of products providing a highly visible Sydney-based reference site for our technology."

Dr. Jonathan Seeff, senior partner at Southern Radiology, said: "Our practice is growing rapidly, particularly in the areas of subspecialty reporting. This means that our MRI or CT experts need to report cases from across our entire network regardless of which practice they are at that day. We looked at a number of conventional 2D web-based systems but soon realised that they could not provide us with the solution we require, as some of the data sets we need to report remotely can be up to a few gigabytes in size."

"Visage, with its thin client streaming technology, enables us to view even the largest image data sets without having to move them across our network. It has provided us with the technological step change that we were looking for, not to mention that it will provide us with a strategic advantage in terms of how we make our images available to our referrers. It is the next generation in digital imaging technology," continued Seeff.
