Visit HIMSS booth #4074 to learn more about Fujifilm’s offerings through live
demonstrations and opportunities for face-to-face conversations. Following is
a summary of offerings:

The cornerstone of Fujifilm’s integrated solution is Synapse PACS. Two main
goals – enhanced communication and optimized productivity for radiologists in
any imaging environment – were the impetus behind its development.

Also to be showcased is the advanced Synapse Cardiovascular, a web-based
platform uniquely suited to fit into any facility’s I.T. infrastructure. It
creates finalized, signed cardiovascular-structured reports quickly and
easily. Advanced tools that help quantify results, such as interactive
diagrams and freehand drawing tools, add to its advantages. It can be
optimized for cardiac catheterization, invasive peripheral vascular,
echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, vascular ultrasound and cardiac CT and
MRI procedures.

Radiologists and cardiologists interested in advanced visualization and
analysis will find the innovations of Fujifilm’s Synapse 3D very appealing for
their diagnostic needs with twenty nine functions to choose from. It is fully
integrated with Synapse PACS and Synapse Cardiovascular, and eliminates the
need to access advanced diagnostic tools from a separate workstation or with a
separate login. Patient lists are synchronized, making it up to date at all

The next generation of Synapse RIS, the most advanced Radiology Information
System on the market today, will also be shown. Synapse RIS offers a host of
features designed to meet the needs of outpatient facilities, radiology groups
and hospitals. The system has also received EHR certification, enabling it to
be part of the Meaningful Use initiative that provides financial incentives to
medical professionals who use a certified EHR. New this year is improved
Synapse financials, patient portal and a new business analytics module.

Fujifilm has also announced the integration of vendor neutral architecture
(VNA) into its Synapse portfolio. Synapse VNA enables the management and
distribution of DICOM and non-DICOM information from a variety of PACS
providers. IT professionals will appreciate the Information Lifecycle
Management (ILM) features, multiple domain/organization structure access
controls, virtualized platform and Oracle Enterprise Edition (EE) database.

Fujifilm will also share the benefits of its zero footprint mobile
application, Synapse Mobility. The application enables access to Fujifilm’s
suite of Synapse products from hand-held devices, in addition to browser
independence. Access to non-DICOM information from the Synapse VNA has been
added to complete the universal viewing capability from EMRs such as Epic
Hyperspace. Synapse Mobility continues to lead in diagnostic capability as
demonstrated by having a 510(k) from the FDA for both browser and mobile
