Viztek, Now a Konica Minolta Company, to Demonstrate Exa Mammo Viewer at RSNA

Maximizing Efficiency for Radiologists and Streamlining Integration for Healthcare IT

RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2015) - (RSNA Booth #6728) - Viztek, a Konica Minolta Company, will showcase the Exa Mammo Viewer -- the first of its kind, PACS-neutral, breast imaging management workstation, with full diagnostic* quality for breast imaging -- during the upcoming Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) scientific assembly and annual meeting, November 29- December 3, 2015. A leading provider of comprehensive, end to end digital software and hardware diagnostic imaging solutions, Viztek debuted the Exa Mammo Viewer earlier this year as the latest innovation to its Exa platform of Healthcare IT software for image viewing and sharing.

Maximizing Efficiency for Radiologists and Referring Physicians
The Exa Mammo Viewer can be used in conjunction with any facility's current PACS, benefiting physicians by enabling comparison with images and reference to patient files for breast ultrasound, MR, CT and more. It is the first and only solution to enable diagnostic quality viewing of any breast imaging study -- including Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) -- from any remote location, regardless of the PACS being used. This ability to read, diagnose*, and compare with other breast imaging studies from any location within the department or offsite, creates tremendous efficiencies in the patient care process.

"Tomosynthesis is now prevalent, and radiologists and referring physicians expect to view, compare and diagnose all breast imaging studies -- including DBT -- from a single PACS-neutral device," said Steve Deaton, Vice President, Viztek, a Konica Minolta Company. "Efficiency matters more than ever today, and the ability to read at any remote location, with no downloads and superior quality, is a game changer."

Built with the IT Department in Mind
The Exa Mammo Viewer is an extension of the innovative and versatile Exa platform. The speed at which radiologists and other physicians can access all breast imaging studies of any size, whether physically located within the department or outside at another reading location, is a result of the unique use of true Zero Footprint (ZFP) viewing and Server-Side Rendering (SSR). There is no pre-fetching required and there are no plug-ins required. Full functionality and instant access is available regardless of the operating system. So not only is the hospital IT network freed from the burden of downloading large and numerous image files, but regardless of the computer preferences of physicians -- MACs, PCs, iOS or Android tablets and even iOs and Android phones -- all are universally supported. In short, the Exa platform provides fast access anywhere.
