Fujifilm to unveil latest version of Synapse 3D platform at HIMSS

by John R. Fischer , Staff Reporter
FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A. is set to unveil the latest version of its Synapse 3D system this month at the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s (HIMSS) Global Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida.

The Japan-based manufacturer has added on five new applications to its advanced visualization software, building on the workflow capabilities offered by its current 50. They include breast analyzer MR, delayed enhancement MR, intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) MR, endoscopic simulator, and prostate viewer MR.

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

“The new features foster increased confidence in image assessment by offering tools that supplement complex imaging decisions. It offers providers intuitive, logical workflows that guide them to efficient and accurate results that can lead to improved patient outcomes," Bill Lacy, vice president, Medical Informatics, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., told HCB News. "Each improvement and new 3D application extends how Synapse 3D validates results.”

A multi-faceted application, Breast Analyzer MR allows users to assess breast tumors with kinetic curves for wash-in and wash-out, as well as subtraction of pre- and post-contrast. It produces BI-RAD reports and performs a range of measurements that include distances from the nipple, skin and chest wall, as well as tumor volume.

The system also now offers Delayed Enhancement MR, a tool designed with the support of cardiologists for analyzing myocardial viability, providing delayed enhancement area and volume measurements, and depicting the enhanced area overlaid in the bulls-eye map.

IVIM MR, meanwhile, enables clinicians to retrieve quantitative data from diffusion-weighted images with the use of tissue microcapillary perfusion. In addition, it can automatically generate an ADC map, eADC map, D map, D* map, and f map.

Another new feature is a prostate viewer MR for assessing prostate gland tumors and generating PI-RAD reports. The function measures both diameter and volume of the prostate gland and lesions, and offers clinicians a variety of tools for comparing observations of multiple series, T2, ADC, DWI, DCE, and time intensity curves.

MR, however, is not the only modality to benefit from the new additions, with the fifth being an endoscopic simulator CT, designed specifically for laparoscopic surgery simulation. It specifically simulates inflation of the abdomen, port placement, and positioning, while automatically segmenting vessels, skin, bone, pancreas, spleen and tumors.

“The number of healthcare providers expected to realize an enhanced workflow will grow as a direct result of the value and functionality available in the new 3D applications," said Lacy. "The new, advanced applications will have a significant impact on radiologists, endoscopists, gastroenterologists, cardiologists, oncologists, surgeons, urologists, and other specialists.”

In 2017 Fujifilm launched version 5 of its Synapse PACS system, which gained a Risk Management Framework-based Authority to Operate (ATO) on U.S. Department of Defense networks. It also showcased both this and Synapse 3D this past November at the annual RSNA meeting in Chicago.
