Software-based solutions form the core of FujiFilm's PACS offerings. Synapse, a software-based image and information management system, was commercially released six years ago, evolving since then into a Web-integrated infrastructure capable of handling multisite PACS installations. Synapse Module release 1 for Synapse version 3.0 enhancements include integrated document scanning and improvements to reading protocols offering better analysis, distribution, and presentation of information.

  • An integrated "auto-filer" has been added for document scanning. The new capability allows paper-based documents, including consent forms and clinical assesment notes, to be digitally captured by Synapse.
  • Reading Protocols are enhanced to automate the presentation of information contained within Synapse, including documents, image processing parameters, and results. A single mouse click presets a presentation or specified sequence for a particular study type or comparison. Users can also save, manage, and share reading protocols.
