SAN DIEGO, Nov. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Visage Imaging, Inc. (“Visage”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd. (ASX: PME), has announced Visage will be exhibiting under the theme of “Platform for the Future—Powered by Speed,” highlighted by the demonstration of the Visage® 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform, at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2019 annual meeting (Visage Booth 7524, McCormick Place-North Hall), December 1-5, in Chicago, Illinois.

Visage 7 has advanced Enterprise Imaging based on the proven ability to replace legacy PACS for imaging organizations of all sizes and local, regional or national scale. Five of the 2019-2020 top 20 ranked U.S. hospitals* have chosen Visage 7, more than any other PACS.

One of the key drivers of this change has been the relentless growth of datasets produced by modern imaging modalities such as large cross-sectional (CT/MR) and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), and now high-resolution DBT (“High-res DBT”). These datasets, which are often combined with numerous prior imaging studies, are creating major bottlenecks for legacy ‘compress and send’ technology.

“The challenges of data explosion are placing significant stress on healthcare institutions, particularly when it comes to imaging,” explained Malte Westerhoff, PhD, Visage Imaging Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer. Dr. Westerhoff continued, “While we’ll continue to successfully scale the underlying platform to cope with the exponentially growing compute and data handling requirements, that is only one part of the solution. Continuous innovation in how the system can aid and guide users in understanding data quickly, efficiently, and reliably is also needed to allow users to benefit from the additional resolution and information contained in these growing datasets, instead of slowing them down. This involves user interface enhancements, AI-based data analysis, and seamless information exchange with other IT systems in the modern enterprise.”

At RSNA 2019, the following highlights will be demonstrated and discussed:

Visage will be exhibiting in a new 3,200 sq. ft. booth in the North Hall, McCormick Place. To schedule a priority demonstration of Visage 7 or to meet with Visage at RSNA 2019, please visit this link for additional details.
