Diasonics Vingmed Ultrasound is working with a Mississippi hospital to develop new capabilities for the company's EchoPAC echocardiography networking product. Diasonics Vingmed of Santa Clara, CA, on Oct. 17 announced its collaboration with North Mississippi Medical Center (NMMC) in Tupelo, MS.

EchoPAC enables clinicians to network echocardiography scanners together to gain the benefits of digital image management, and NMMC has six echo scanners linked with EchoPAC over a local area network (LAN). The hospital would like to extend the network to an affiliated clinic over a T1 wide area network (WAN) link, as well as add support for an SQL database for archiving studies.

NMMC is the largest of 10 EchoPAC installations in the U.S., according to a Diasonics Vingmed spokesperson. There are about 100 EchoPAC installations worldwide.
