Merge eFilm is demonstrating two new software products, one for its Fusion PACS and RIS/PACS, the other for workstations. The newly enhanced RIS/PACS Fusion eFilm 2.0 uses an advanced hanging protocol engine that enables automated, tailored display of diagnostic images.

The layouts of these images can be designed to speed image interpretation, thereby accelerating productivity. Protocols can be configured to meet the interests and preferences of individual radiologists. They are built with the emerging DICOM Hanging Protocol Standard to ensure future upgradability.

A Roaming Profiles feature, embedded in Fusion eFilm 2.0, ensures that preferences can be accessed from any workstation on the network. The Key Images feature allows radiologists to mark and save sets of key images from the studies. These images are then automatically displayed when cases are accessed by referring physicians.

The company's new downloadable version 2.0 eFilm Workstation software allows the use of thumbnail images, PET/CT fusion, and enhanced user and login authentication. The software will be available in early December.
