Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY) announced a three-year agreement to provide a range of picture archiving and communications system (PACS) solutions to Genesis Digital Imaging, an innovative company based in Los Angeles, CA.
Genesis Digital Imaging supports distributors in the medical imaging industry with leading-edge products and services, and will distribute Mercury’s award-winning Visage(TM) web-enabled PACS solutions under their product umbrella Omni-WEB PACS, throughout the North American market. The agreement with Genesis extends Mercury’s strategy of providing its medical imaging solutions to the marketplace through top-tier dealers and distributors.
“We are excited to add Mercury’s expertise in web-enabled PACS imaging to our turnkey product offerings,” stated Joseph Eliafan, President of Genesis Digital Imaging. “We look forward to combining Computed Radiography (CR) image capture, with web-enabled image distribution into a bundled solution for the non-hospital market.”
Genesis plans to combine the Kodak desktop CR system with the Mercury Visage web-PACS server. The highly integrated solution will be designed to optimize image acquisition and produce high-quality images while significantly accelerating the radiological workflow. With Visage PACS, medical imaging data will be accessible from any web-based client for diagnosis and further reports; as a result, diagnostic personnel are more productive, and patient treatment time is reduced.
“Mercury is proud to work with Genesis Digital Imaging,” said Marcelo Lima, Vice President and General Manager of Commercial Imaging and Visualization at Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. “Together, Genesis and Mercury will provide dealers and distributors in the North American marketplace solutions with leading image quality and performance combined with enterprise- grade, web-PACS technology.”
