Mercury Computer, BRIT Systems Partner on Medical Image Management

Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) announced a partnership with BRIT Systems, a leading PACS/RIS company based in Dallas, Texas, for the integration and distribution of its image management system. The partnership between the companies paves the way for providing integrated high-end PACS systems, enabling a significantly faster radiological workflow and outstanding image quality for 2D, 3D and 4D data.

In this way, consistent data are available throughout the entire hospital enterprise. At the click of a mouse, clinicians and radiologists can access medical data directly from the PACS for diagnosis and patient treatment.

“BRIT Systems is delighted to announce our partnership with Mercury for providing advanced 3D capabilities into our Linux workstation,” said Shelly Fisher, President of BRIT Systems. “Through the use of a Linux client, Mercury’s powerful 3D tools will become an integrated part of our top-end workstation. This provides our application with a tremendous increase in capabilities for supporting features such as cardiac scoring and virtual colonoscopy. Plus, these features can also be made available on our Windows platforms for referring physicians.”

Under the agreement, BRIT Systems will integrate the Mercury Visage(TM) PACS and Visage CS Thin Client Server in its Roentgen RIS radiology information system. BRIT can thus offer its customers an extended product portfolio covering clinical applications in cardiology, PET-CT, surgery and orthopedics, and 3D tools.

Furthermore, Mercury will also deliver professional services to BRIT to provide fast time-to-market turnkey solutions for clinics and healthcare institutions. “We offer OEM partners tailor-made solutions for the entire diagnostic workflow,” said Marcelo Lima, Vice President of Commercial Imaging and Visualization at Mercury. “Our partners benefit from Mercury’s decades of experience in and knowledge of modalities, medical systems, and worldwide medical standards such as HL7 and IHE.”
