Center for Diagnostic Imaging Selects Merge Mammo™
MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Merge Healthcare, (Nasdaq:MRGE), a leading medical imaging solutions provider, today announced a new contract with the Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI), a national network of 51 imaging centers based in Minneapolis, MN. The CDI centers in the Twin Cities will use Merge Mammo 7.2, the newest version of Merge’s breast imaging workstation software. The solution will debut at the CDI center in Sartell, MN.
“After reviewing several prominent mammography applications, Merge Mammo 7.2 proved the best overall solution,” says Steve Fischer, CIO of CDI. “While our physicians noted the software’s robustness and intuitive workflow, it was Merge’s flexible deployment model that best matched our expense-to-revenue criteria and won our vote of confidence. Their dedication throughout the entire process was also very much appreciated.”
Merge Mammo 7.2 brings new, highly intuitive viewing protocols and workflow tools that allow each radiologist to display and compare breast images according to his or her preferences. Merge Mammo also manages breast images regardless of medical device type (x-ray, ultrasound, MRI or CT) or modality vendor used to acquire the images.
“This is a nice step forward in our relationship with CDI,” says Nancy Koenig, President of Merge’s Fusion division. “CDI has relied on Merge software to manage its radiology workflow through the use of Fusion RIS™ (Radiology Information System) for several years. This new contract continues Merge’s dedication to meet the immediate and unique needs of each diagnostic imaging facility through innovative medical imaging solutions and productive service models.”
