RamSoft Shows Web-Based Mammography Reading out of the PowerServer PACS at BIC 2008

TORONTO, ON October 6, 2008 – RamSoft has unveiled its latest web-based mammography PACS tools at the 28th Annual Breast Imaging Conference, and news of its release has already generated buzz and excitement from all around the breast imaging community.

The design philosophy behind RamSoft’s newest breast imaging features were driven by the desire to streamline and automate repetitive day-to-day user tasks. After listening to its customers, RamSoft has delivered a suite of mammography enhancements that has delighted its customers while bolstering the PowerServer™ as a system with both immediate and long-term ROI.

“Full featured mammography support is something that we have been working on for the past year”, explained Vijay Ramanathan, CEO, RamSoft Inc. “I’m both proud and excited to finally reveal the fruits of our labour at BIC 2008. Our company has worked tirelessly to develop a winning product in terms of features, performance and ease of use. I thank the customers for waiting patiently, and I think they will agree that we have created a web-based mammography solution that is unequaled in the market.”

The following are the newest core mammography features offered in the latest release:

All-in-one Mammography, breast MRI, and ultrasound.
PowerServer’s PowerReader workstation supports breast MRI, mammography, and ultrasound reading from a single client and interface; which means that radiologists can have their breast MRI’s, ultrasound, and mammography images open at the same time. This simplifies workflow and eliminates the need to work with multiple workstations.

Scheduled study routing and pre-fetching.
The routing and pre-fetching mechanism is so flexible that it allows you to virtually do anything you can imagine. You can route studies by Status, Modality, Faculty, Physicians, Times, Dates, AE title and many other DICOM tags.

Flexible CAD image overlays.
PowerServer’s CAD image overlays work with any CAD package that conforms to DICOM CAD specifications, including Hologic and iCAD. The overlays display both calcification clusters and mass/density in tissue via Polygon and ellipse markers.

Auto layout and matching.
The powerful mammography viewing module will automatically sort the left and right digital image series and match them to any relevant priors stored in the system for easy comparison. In addition, all the popular vertical and horizontal compare modes are supported to enable customization and enhance ease of use.

FDA approved for Mammography.
In addition to HL7, DICOM and IHE conformance, the PowerReader workstation software is also FDA approved to assure its safety, reliability and efficacy in a mission-critical facility.

Significant cost advantage.
More often than not, customers are surprised to see the dramatic drop in the total cost of ownership (TCO) at their facility after installing the PowerServer™ PACS. Why settle for a stand-alone Mammography workstation when you can have a multi-modality PACS for nearly the same price?

Optimized reading.
Great care has been taken when optimizing both the window and level algorithms to provide the greatest image quality and smoothest reading experience possible.

The PowerServer™ PACS allows you to read digital mammography anywhere using the web-based PowerReader clinical workstation. The mammography-specific image management and reporting tools, which are typically only found on a dedicated workstation, are available to everyone with PowerServer™– no matter the location.

PowerServer™ PACS updates and upgrades are available at no additional charge to all clients under a support agreement. This customer-focused approach ensures that users have access to new features and enhancements as soon at they are available.

RamSoft provides some of the most sophisticated and complete PACS solutions to ambulatory and acute care facilities. Through the Customer Action Initiative (CAI), RamSoft is to working with radiologists, physicians, and staff to develop products that truly enhances the quality of patient care.
