CHICAGO, Oct. 23, 2010 – Imorgon, the developer of advanced integrated software solutions that enable the full potential of diagnostic ultrasound, announced that the company has been selected as a finalist, one of two vendors, by Auntminnie.com for its 2010 Minnie award for “Best New Radiology Vendor.” [Link] The annual award is part of a campaign created by Auntminnie.com, a leading Internet community site for radiologists and the related medical imaging community, to recognize excellence in radiology.
“Imorgon is honored to receive this prestigious award and recognition from Auntminnie.com and its expert panel of editors and radiology professionals,” said Lloyd Kreuzer, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Imorgon. “We are thrilled to be recognized for our innovative solution that utilizes computer technology in a unique way to enable the full potential of ultrasound by improving workflow efficiency and diagnostic accuracy.”
Imorgon’s IntegratedUltrasound™ is a software-only solution that is designed to operate independently, or integrate seamlessly with a hospital’s current multi-modality PACS. The solution is optimized for viewing ultrasound studies within an integrated, image-viewing environment and it enables radiologists to automatically display all of a patient’s ultrasound studies, including clips and still images simultaneously on the same Microsoft® Windows workstation used to view CT and MRI images.
Imorgon also offers comprehensive, instant access to all of a patient’s prior imaging data from CT, MRI and ultrasound, without switching workstations or re-entering patient data. IntegratedUltrasound is based on the DICOM industry standard for transferring radiologic images and other medical information between computers, and on the HL7 communications standard for hospital information systems (HIS). In addition, Imorgon’s IntegratedUltrasound solution delivers a scalable architecture including options such as DICOM structured reporting, which allows automatic transfer of measurements made on the ultrasound system during a patient’s exam directly into the patient report. As a result, reporting errors are decreased and patient safety is improved.
Imorgon is a leading provider of IntegratedUltrasound solutions. Headquartered in Redwood City, Calif., Imorgon was founded by ultrasound industry veterans who were key members of the technology team that invented ultrasound PACS in the 1990s. Building on decades of ultrasound expertise, Imorgon is dedicated to producing a scalable software solution that offers highly intuitive functionality and enhances the PACS viewing environment, ensuring ease-of-use and the ability to leverage existing IT and infrastructure investments.
