Synapse 3D

Optimize workflow with Synapse 3D’s advanced diagnostic tools for radiology.

BEST OF BREED CHRISTIE INNOMED

Summary

Synapse 3D provides caregivers several levels of tools to the user in packages called Base Tools, Advanced Cardiology, and Advanced Radiology Tools. Together, these packages provide comprehensive advanced image analysis.


Various, clinically useful analytic applications are available to analyze different body parts and images from many modalities. Extremely large images and image series (e.g. cardiac images) can be loaded directly into memory. Analysis is simple and easy using Image Intelligence™, Fujifilm’s proprietary image recognition technology.


The 3D processing is optimized to the sub-voxel level to achieve the best imaging performance while providing the freedom to set object surface textures, 3D ray directions, and light attribute settings. Useful operations, such as clipping and interactive processing, can be performed in real time and rendering is available at multiple resolutions.


Synapse 3D uses thin client technology without the need of any proprietary hardware.

Technology

Optimized study display
Radiologists are able to add notes, save specific studies or save a particular image to review or discuss at a later date. Once reopened, the studies are presented in the same state, therefore removing the need to reorder and sort images prior to a conference for example.


Compression without loss of quality
Synapse PACS makes the most of your infrastructure with Fujifilm’s unique patented compression technology. This technology combines high compression ratios without sacrificing image quality. Fujifilm’s unique approach allows on-demand access to the entire patient history.


Multi site PACS
A modern radiology department is an important division within the hospital infrastructure - not only in terms of network storage, but also in terms of workflow, therefore departments need efficient tools to create a radiology department without borders. Fujifilm has realized that to be successful, PACS must bring together multiple devices, each with its own location based information systems and various user groups. At the same time it is important to remain scalable; Synapse PACS architecture contributes to this goal.


Integrating multiple information systems
Often there are advantages when multiple pages are combined into a common database, even if no common demographic information system exists. The consolidation of data sources is a unique technology from Fujifilm, which enables a single synapse database to manage image and text information from different facilities, each with different HL7 based information systems, therefore increasing efficiency.


Virtualization
The healthcare market demands solutions with high performance, reliability and scalability. Compared to traditional server configurations, virtualization is a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The main factors are lower energy costs, less heat and thus savings in air conditioning and more efficient hardware utilization. The integration in an existing VMware environment and the use of available hardware resources (SAN,NAS,HSM) play a major role in this cost conscious market, using VMware developed Fujifilm solutions that address these key requirements. Fujifilm is an official member of the program's Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) and tests the Synapse products in the VMware headquarters in Palo Alto.

Benefits

Powerful thin-client
Synapse 3D integrates to any PACS through desktop integration. Images, data and reports are able to be sent to PACS via DICOM transfer. With the thin client option, capital investment of a hospital is drastically reduced because high specification terminals are not required. Web data streaming makes it possible to analyze 3D images on any terminal in the clinical enterprise. Remote client access is available using VPN or SSL configurations, making secured access outside the hospital and clinic a reality.


Clinical applications
Synapse 3D excels with a multitude of comprehensive functional analysis applications. Fujifilm has high commitment towards product expansion with the constant introduction of new applications. Fujifilm will soon introduce the following clinical applications: MR Tensor Analysis with Craniotomy, CPR with endograph, Kidney Analysis, CT Cardiac – 4 chamber, Ablation Analysis, MR T2 Analysis, MR Flow Analysis.


Virtualization
Synapse 3D can be virtualized using VMware® ESX servers. Furthermore, Synapse 3D does not require any proprietary hardware such as video cards.


Vendor Neutral
Synapse 3D accepts DICOM compliant medical images acquired from a variety of imaging devices including, CT, MR, CR, US, NM, PT, Angiography, etc.


Advanced Image Processing 
Using award-winning proprietary algorithms, Synapse 3D’s image recognition modules define excellence in imaging standards. The unique image recognition technology Image IntelligenceTM used in Fujifilm's digital cameras is also adopted in Synapse 3D. 


Snapshot Workflow for Efficiency 
From one user to the next, snapshot workflows allow the work to continue forward. Snapshots allow streamlined workflow between pre-processing and reading of images, thus enabling efficient 3D tech – interpreter workflows.


Consistent User Interface 
Because all Synapse 3D application tools are designed by Fujifilm, the software maintains a consistent user interface across all modules.
