CHELMSFORD, Mass., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mercury ComputerSystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) announced that it has architected its entiremedical OEM product line to be 3D to the Core . a revolutionary new platformdesigned to empower the transformation of the diagnostic workflow to fullyintegrated, seamless 3D visualization. The Visage imaging and visualizationsoftware and solutions will be showcased at the 91st Scientific Assembly andAnnual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago ,Illinois November 27 through December 1 .

3D to the Core - 3D Throughout the Workflow

The diagnostic workflow is now confronting an explosion of data.Conventional two-dimensional diagnostic techniques and the PACS (picturearchiving and communications systems) that were designed to support them arebecoming obsolete. Mercury's entire Visage(TM) imaging product line formedical OEMs has been architected to bring 3D imaging to the core of theworkflow. This innovative platform accelerates the processing of images andopens the way for new levels of productivity and efficiency. Mercuryacquisition and reconstruction technologies deliver orders-of-magnitudereduction in reconstruction time over existing technologies, helping to ensurethat the reconstruction process does not become the throughput bottleneck inthe diagnostic workflow.

The Visage CS Thin Client/Server solution expands 3D viewing capabilitiesto multiple users everywhere in the hospital and at remote sites, usingexisting PCs and laptops. This thin client/server approach is both cost-effective and empowering, because it plugs seamlessly into legacy hospital ITsystems and eliminates reliance on a few, expensive 3D workstations.

"As part of this re-architecting, we have renamed our products with aunified brand: Visage," said Marcelo Lima , Vice President of CommercialImaging and Visualization, Mercury Computer Systems.
