Merge Healthcare , a leading medical imaging software provider, announced the implementation of the recently released Fusion PACS MX 3.0 with integrated Merge Mammo™ 7.10 at Washington Radiology Associates (WRA). Operating six outpatient facilities in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, WRA delivers imaging services including digital mammography, digital x-ray, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography.

Ramin Abrahim, MD, of Washington Radiology Associates says, The implementation of Fusion PACS MX 3.0 and Merge Mammo 7.10 has increased capabilities of our organization by streamlining workflow for the entire practice. This solution is a major development in paving the way to the ‘holy grail’ of PACS. In the future, imaging organizations will realize new efficiencies from a single, all-inclusive PACS environment with the capability of having various best-of-breed subspecialty software plugged in and serving as the central manager of data.  It will communicate with, and seamlessly navigate through multiple solutions, and will be robust and stable enough to handle it all.

Merge Mammo is a multi-modality, vendor neutral digital mammography workstation that displays and reads images from different acquisition devices and different vendors, including digital mammography, ultrasound, MR and CT.

Nancy Koenig, President of Merge Fusion, a division of Merge Healthcare said, The integration between Fusion PACS MX 3.0 and Merge Mammo 7.10 is a major step forward for our industry because it is one of the first solutions that enable radiologists to launch mammography viewing directly within the PACS workstation.
