Using the Web browser of their choice, radiologists and referring physicians can have on-the-go access to the images and information stored in Synapse PACS, Synapse RIS and Synapse Cardiovascular, increasing accessibility to patient information and improving workflow.[ Also Read: Digital System to Look Inside the Human Body ]
“In today’s demanding and competitive healthcare environment, clinicians need more than just soft copy data; they need instant access to complete patient information regardless of whether they’re in the reading room, at the bedside during rounds, or in their homes,” explains Jim Morgan, Fujifilm’s VP, Medical Informatics.
“With Synapse Mobility, Fujifilm is further enhancing the delivery of care by enabling physicians to view the same high quality, interactive images that could be seen at a Synapse workstation, but now in a convenient, readily accessible form factor.”[ Also Read: Photos Go Mobile with Free Android App ]
A differentiator of Synapse Mobility, according to the company, is its ability to display high quality, interactive three-dimensional images – not just static flash files – in any platform that it’s accessed, including on iPads, iPhones and Android smartphones.
This interactive feature enables images to be manipulated using the zoom, window and level, and MIP/MPR within the application, just as the physician would do at a clinical workstation.
In addition to clinical benefits, Synapse Mobility is also readily deployed because it is browser independent and scalable, providing facilities with virtually an unlimited number of users, says the company.
The commercial availability of the solution is expected in the first quarter of 2011. Once purchased by facilities, users can download Synapse Mobility at the Apple Store, said Fujifilm Sunday, Nov. 28.
