Mercury Computer Systems to Showcase Expanded Functionality of its 3D to the Core Platform

via PRNewswire

CHELMSFORD, Mass., March 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mercury ComputerSystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) will showcase its expanded 3D to the Coreplatform at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), March 3-7, in Vienna , Austria .

Mercury's 3D to the Core platform for OEMs is composed of the Visage(TM)highly integrated family of products that span the diagnostic workflow. TheVisage family is designed from the ground up to be 3D -- significantly accelerating the processing of ever-larger amounts of medical imaging data, and cost-effectively enabling a 3D diagnostic workflow to be completely integrated within a radiology department's existing workflow.

A highlight of the Visage product family is the Mercury Visage 2.0 CS ThinClient/Server. The Visage CS Thin Client/Server solution expands 3D viewing capabilities to multiple users everywhere in a hospital and at remote sites, using existing PCs and laptops. This thin client/server approach is both cost-effective and empowering, as it plugs seamlessly into legacy hospital IT systems and eliminates reliance on a few, expensive 3D workstations. Visage CS2.0 now includes critical clinical application and workflow capabilities for visualizing 3D medical image data, either tightly coupled with a scanning modality, or seamlessly integrated within a PACS environment.

"In addition to state-of-the-art 3D rendering techniques, Visage CS 2.0 now features hanging protocols and viewing comparison of multiple series/studies side by side, as well as vessel analysis and PET-CT protocols," said Marcelo Lima , Vice President of Commercial Imaging and Visualization at Mercury Computer Systems. "Through the thin client technology, the full set of functions becomes available anywhere, anytime, for any number of users throughout the hospital enterprise, without requiring special hardware on the client side."

At ECR, Mercury will demonstrate for the first time the integration of Visage PACS and Visage CS, which will enable the end user to seamlessly utilize the 3D functionality of Visage CS within the workflow of Visage PACS. Mercury will also demonstrate Visage PACS View, a new client version of VisagePACS. This introductory solution comprises both viewing and basic features for image processing.
