Imorgon Selected as Semi Finalist for 2013 Minnies; Receives Nomination for “Best New Radiology Software”

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 28, 2013 – Imorgon, the developer of advanced integrated software solutions that enable the full potential of diagnostic ultrasound, announced that the company’s Report Accelerator has been selected as a semi finalist for the 2013 Minnie award for “Best New Radiology Software.” The annual Minnie Awards are part of AuntMinnie.com’s campaign to recognize the best and brightest in medical imaging. This year’s campaign features 205 candidates in 15 categories.

“We are very honored to be a semi finalist for the 2013 Minnie’s in the category of “Best New Radiology Software,” said Lloyd Kreuzer, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Imorgon. “Imorgon is committed to providing a better way to connect and communicate the ultrasound acquisition process to the diagnostic reporting process. As a result, we are successfully solving problems, improving patient safety, and dramatically improving upon the quality of service to patients and physicians.”

The Report Accelerator is vendor-neutral, interfacing to any ultrasound system capable of sending DICOM Structured Report (SR) data. It parses the data from the ultrasound system and transfers it into the voice recognition/dictation system templates, which eliminates dictation of numeric data. It also replaces paper worksheets with electronic worksheets that can auto-populate report templates with exam observations and eliminate redundant dictation. In addition, DEXA values with auto calculated, whole-body minimums are imported directly into a report, decreasing dictation time while improving accuracy and patient safety.

Imorgon’s Ultrasound View enables ultrasound clips and still images to be displayed on the PACS viewing station in the acquisition order, and offers ultrasound-specific measurement tools, as well as in-progress review with automatic updates as images and clips are acquired. The software solution also provides sonographer Q/C tools.

Imorgon’s IntegratedUltrasound™ solution is based on the DICOM industry standard for transferring images and other medical information between computers, and on the HL7 communications standard for Hospital Information Systems (HIS).
