The MathWorks, Inc. (Natick, Mass.) now bundles add-on products—previously available separately—into its venerable MATLAB and Simulink software. Those additional utilities broaden capabilities in system optimization and control; image and signal processing, analysis and algorithm development; for applying statistical and probability models; and, in symbolic mathematics and variable-precision arithmetic. With MATLAB and Simulink Student Version, scholars can become proficient with the same tools that engineers and scientists use to solve their challenging technical problems.
Visage Imaging (Fuerth, Germany & Carlsbad, Calif.), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (Chelmsford, Mass), showcases Visage PACS/CS, a unique, scalable picture archiving and communication system based on web- and thin client-technologies. PACS/CS embodies advanced tools for 2-, 3- and 4‑D image distribution, review and interpretation, post-processing and data management. Image data, alongside the underlying application within Visage PACS/CS, are platform-independent and instantly accessible anywhere, anytime across the enterprise on existing workstations, PCs and laptops.
The latest iteration of Visage PACS/CS extends performance via Wide Area Networks and over slower-speed digital subscriber lines, enabling efficient remote operation among distributed imaging centers. By combining immediate and efficient access to all images and attendant report files, Visage PACS/CS improves workflow throughout the entire healthcare environment.
