Synapse PACS

Web-based on-demand Medical Imaging and Information Management System.

Fujifilm’s Medical Imaging and Information Management System, SYNAPSE PACS, allows the archiving and distribution of vast amounts of images information from all modalities. With the first comprehensive PACS and with next-generation Web technology, SYNAPSE PACS utilizes the latest wavelet for on-demand compression. It also accesses large files quickly and easily regardless of location.

SYNAPSE PACS has revolutionized the management of Radiology Imaging Services, supporting Image Diagnosis with high-quality images, numerous image processing features and easy operation, affording exciting new possibilities in this rapidly evolving Medical field.

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’s history.

Multisite 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. It enables a single Synapse database that manages image and text information from different facilities, each with different HL7 based information systems.

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.  Fujifilm is an official member of the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program and tests the Synapse products in the VMware headquarters in Palo Alto.

Synapse PACS is simple to use
Synapse PACS is a 100% web-based, intuitive, and scalable solution with on demand access providing images in less than two seconds.

Synapse PACS is versatile
Synapse improves efficiency and workflow whilst enhancing access to patient data. Its scalable architecture enables the same product to be installed in any setting. Fujifilm’s Access Over Network (AON) compression method optimizes the archiving and distribution of data to guarantee the rapid display of images without sacrificing image quality.

Synapse PACS is one compact solution
Synapse offers integrated advanced visualization tools, mammography functionality and XDS natively enabled as standard.

Synapse PACS is productive
Synapse PACS supports improvements in reporting efficiency and accuracy whilst providing total system management giving maximum productivity.
