Three Palm Software announces WorkstationOne 1.7.2
Carmel, CA, 20 November 2014
Three Palm Software today announced the release of the 1.7.2 version of its breast imaging workstation – WorkstationOne. This new release will be shown at RSNA 2014 in the company’s booth (7610).
This release builds on the existing comprehensive support for mammography, with improvements since the last RSNA in many areas. With four years of customer experience with the existing WorkstationOne support for tomosynthesis, the company has utilized that feedback to optimize common tomosynthesis interactions, and included mechanisms that allow the system to conform to the new IHE “Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT)” profile as an Image Display actor. This means that the system: generates and displays key notes for individual frames; generates and displays per-frame markup; and displays tomosynthesis CAD. User interface mechanisms are provided to allow rapid navigation of the per-frame information. Other enhancements that will be shown at RSNA include expanded printing, auto-generation of Breast Imaging structured reports (SR), expanded SR display, and secure (TLS) communications. Together, these enhancements push WorkstationOne even further ahead of the competition, making it the premier workstation for breast imaging.
WorkstationOne will also be shown on a number of partner booths at RSNA, including leading PACS and FFDM vendors, as well as the major vendors of high-resolution mammography monitors.
Three Palm Software Granted Patent for the User Interface and Workflow for a Mammography Workstation
Carmel, CA, 20 October 2014
Three Palm Software, a leading global supplier of mammography visualization and computer-aided diagnosis software, announced today that that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted Three Palm Software a new patent, US Patent 8,803,911. This new patent covers many aspects of the design of a mammography workstation, including pre-fetching and caching of the source data, sequencing of the hanging protocols, and advanced viewing techniques. In addition to common mammography viewing mechanisms such as current and prior comparisons, all-pixel viewing, and generation of reports, this patent also covers the “Systematic Masking” technique.
The mechanisms covered by this patent are implemented in the company’s flagship product – WorkstationOne. This patent, along with earlier patents that cover other aspects of mammography review such as tomosynthesis, demonstrates the leadership and strength of Three Palm Software in the digital mammography domain.
WorkstationOne includes all standard mammography tools such as screening and diagnostic workflows with user-selectable hanging protocol sequences, and it also provides advanced tools such as systematic masking and multi-view cross-correlation. At the enterprise level, WorkstationOne bundles bi-directional integration capabilities for PACS, RIS and reporting systems. WorkstationOne also includes rich features for tomosynthesis display. All existing (more than four hundred) customized hanging protocols are fully available for both conventional mammography and tomosynthesis studies, enabling radiologists to read all mammography images efficiently using the built-in workflow.
Three Palm Software announces WorkstationOne 1.7.1
Carmel, 19 May 2014
Three Palm Software today announced the release of the 1.7.1 version of its breast imaging workstation – WorkstationOne.
This release builds on the existing comprehensive support for mammography, with improvements in several areas. In particular, support for multi-modality printing has been added, including printing of frames from tomosynthesis images and multi-frame ultrasound images in complex page layouts; terminology has been upgraded to that from the BI-RADS 5th edition; support has been added for both generation and display of DICOM structured reports following the breast imaging template; image correction (for mammography and tomosynthesis images) has been made more intuitive; and there have been numerous usability enhancements. Together, these enhancements maintain WorkstationOne’s position as the premier workstation for breast imaging.
