ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Visage Imaging(R) Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro Medicus Ltd. announced today a signed deal to provide Lake Imaging, one of Australia's largest independent diagnostic imaging groups, with Visage 7 - its next generation, thin client streaming digital imaging technology (PACS) solution.
Visage 7 will be installed and fully integrated with the existing Pro Medicus Radiology Information System (RIS) at all Lake Imaging sites. In addition to being used for all primary diagnosis, the system will handle the long term image archiving needs of the group. The Visage solutions also provide Lake Imaging referring physicians with the ability to remotely access, view and manipulate their patients' images in both 2D and 3D, another first being native support for both Windows(R) and Mac OS X.
"Lake is a technology thought leader and has always built its business model using IT as a key enabler. We wanted to step up to a 4th generation PACS and after an exhaustive search, identified Pro Medicus as having all the things we wanted in a fully integrated next generation PACS/RIS system. It continues our strong relationship with Pro Medicus with a decision that makes both business and clinical sense for us. This move puts us two years ahead of the other players," stated John Livingston, CEO, Lake Imaging.
Visage 7 technology will be showcased later this month with expected US release in December 2009 at the Radiology Society of North America's in Chicago.
