MILWAUKEE, Jan. 31 /CNW/ -- Merge eMed, a Merge Healthcare (Nasdaq: MRGE) company and a leader in healthcare software and services, today announced that it has released FUSION Matrix PACS, version 2.1. This newest release introduces several key enhancements to help radiologists efficiently read studies, including the ability to query and retrieve studies from third-party DICOM sources, reserve studies, and mark studies as preliminary. In addition, FUSION Matrix PACS 2.1 has added new tools such as triangulation, which lets the user easily define a target point on an image to view the corresponding anatomical position in other series. FUSION Matrix PACS is sold as a stand-alone PACS solution or as part of FUSION RIS/PACS MX, which integrates business and clinical workflow.

"This newest release follows a product innovation process that includes conceptual design based on customer input, customer research and usability testing," says Barbara Dumery, Senior Product Manager. "FUSION Matrix PACS continues to be focused on creating the absolute best workflow environment for our customers along with a highly productive workspace for radiologists."

"We are very pleased with this newest version of the FUSION Matrix PACS," says Dr. Ramin Abrahim of Washington Radiology Associates. "We have already seen efficiencies in study assignment and retrieval, and the radiologists are happy to have even more flexibility in their reading worklist. Graphic marking of high priority studies on the worklist ensures prompt reading of those studies.
