“This revolutionary thin client technology allows us to reach our network of highly specialized experts wherever they maybe. Now we can get the most accurate and consistent readings out even faster. Visage 7 works on a variety of OS platforms and uses bandwidth so efficiently that we can instantly bring the highly technical tools to analyze our core lab images to the radiologist rather than waiting to bring the radiologist to the workstation,” said Jim Whitfill, MD Chief Information Officer for Imaging Endpoints.
"At Imaging Endpoints, we understand the high stakes pharmaceutical and medical device sponsors face in their efforts to bring new products to market to ultimately improve patient outcomes. Visage 7 technology supports our brand promise to deliver superior medical image analysis on time and on budget by providing subspecialty expertise combined with a streamlined process to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical trials,” said Ron Korn, MD, PhD, Medical Director for Imaging Endpoints."
The Visage RIS system was installed over four years ago to manage the workflow for 90 radiologists who work in over 20 multi-modality imaging centers, generating over 850,000 orders a year.
The system provides us with three substantial benefits: it is highly integrated to our PACS and Voice Recognition systems, providing the highest productivity levels possible for our radiologists; it is integrated to regional electronic health record systems through data repositories, providing primary care physicians easy access to our reports at any time; and it is the cornerstone of our teleradiology business, the largest of its kind in Canada.
Visage RIS has been extremely reliable in the years of its operation. It has the full functionality we need to run a sophisticated and leading radiology practice in Canada, and it has the necessary interoperability we need in today’s modern health care environment.
Visage RIS will continue to be a cornerstone of our systems and the foundation for our radiology practices for many years to come.

As the largest ‘independent’ outsourcer of post-processing and advanced visualization services in the U.S., 3DR® Laboratories relies heavily on Visage Imaging’s thin client-server software and its capability to operate effectively at less-than-LAN bandwidths.
3DR employs a combination of centrally-located Visage CS servers and servers located in our clients’ facilities to provide 24/7 services in a Software-As-A-Services environment. The image quality and the robust tool selection allow our Technologists and client personnel – both Physicians and Technologists – to process large and diverse data sets and to collaborate effectively to provide their patients with excellent diagnostic and surgical planning support. We have had significant success interfacing Visage CS with several PACS and RIS systems and with interfacing it with our internal, 3DQ Workflow systems.
David E. Ferguson, Chairman, Senior Managing Director
“Visage CS is significantly contributing to the quality of care and service we provide. The ability process studies anywhere within our multi-site practice allows us to provide more sub-specialized service with improved efficiency and faster report turnaround.
The Visage product has been extremely reliable with minimal if any downtime. Our radiologists are very happy with the product.”

Recently Las Vegas Radiology has emerged onto the scene with an aggressive growth business model. The first imaging center to open was the Smoke Ranch Facility which was followed by the Wynn Facility. Recently the business announced plans to open up the Maryland Parkway facility which will be followed by the Durango Facility.
“Promedicus has been able to meet our growth requirements and the team responds quickly to our need for a rapid deployment to our new sites” stated Roland Torres the RIS/PACS Director for Las Vegas Radiology.
“The Technical Support team is outstanding. And the response times are tremendous.”
Las Vegas Radiology is also utilizing the interface to the Elligence Billing Application from Data Strategies. “The interface to Elligence from Promedicus allowed us to start getting paid almost immediately upon opening the doors to our first practice. The Promedicus team is very thorough and works with us on complicated issues and finds resolution quickly and efficiently. “

“Visage is an impressive turnkey solution to our 3D needs. The system will scale with our growing requirements, performs beyond my expectations and integration was seamless.
The implementation team worked with my group every step of the way to ensure a timely and smooth implementation. Wonderful.”
Assistant Director, Radiology Informatics
“There are three important requirements that I consider when evaluating an enterprise server/thin client advanced visualization solution:
2) fully featured functionality, and
3) seamless integration into existing PACS workflow and applications.
Visage addresses these requirements impressively.”
