Benefit: Powerful New Platform

• Smart Client Architecture: enabled by Microsoft .NET,
  combines the power of the PC with the reach of the web for
  easier deployment, maintenance, and improved local client
• 64-Bit Support: enables users to easily load large studies
  along with numerous comparison studies. With 64-bit support,
  users are no longer limited by memory. (v2.2)
• Auto Configure: allows the client to automatically detect and
  optimize itself to the client's existing hardware.
• Balanced Computing Architecture: enables redundancy
  and load balancing across multiple servers and enables
  scalable client performance.

Benefit: Reduced Image Load Time

• Dynamic Progressive Decompression: Images are
  efficiently decompressed to the resolution required for display.
  As the user zooms or magnifies an image it is dynamically
  decompressed further. This minimizes load on network
• Image Loading Prioritization: The client prioritizes image
  loading based on the user’s viewing preferences, enabling the
  user to start working with the images they need, sooner
• Client-Server Communication: Optimized communication
  between the Smart client, Workspace server, and Archive, for
  faster transfer of images and clinical information.

Benefit: Adapts to Radiologist’ Workflow

• User Specific Logins: Application specific logins, each user
  has a unique username and password, enabling their
  preferences to follow them wherever they log in. This also
  enables accurate tracking of who viewed and marked a study as
• Auto Learning: A powerful and effortless way for the user to
  set up viewing protocols. The client learns the current
  presentation at the press of a button.
• Interrupt Sessions: With the 4 available interrupt sessions,
  the user can easily open other viewing sessions within the same
  application, without any impacting performance.
• Customizable User Interface: Users can optimize the user
  interface for how they work, enabling more efficient reading.

Benefit: Enables more Efficient Reading

• Patient Master Jacket: Simulates a patient’s film jacket,
  provides access to all the studies and associated reports for a
  patient. Users can dynamically load any prior study, on the fly.
• Single Station Integration: Relevant HIS/RIS information is
  seamlessly presented to the user, minimizing time for hunting
  and gathering information. Order and report information is
  completely integrated with the study information.
• Voice Dictation: Interfaced with Powerscribe Voice Dictation
  package. Radiologists can easily start dictating, without having
  to switch to another application or enter study information.
• Reading Efficiency Tools: FUSION PACS GL offers many
  efficiency features such as Auto-Read Workflow, Under Review
  Visibility, Read By Visibility, and Auto-Scroll Feature.

Benefit: Enhances Communication

• Instant messaging: Users can easily and unobtrusively send
    instant messages to other users, facilitating peer to peer
•   Voice Over IP: Two users can talk live from client to client,
    facilitating dynamic peer to peer communication.
•   Study Links: Users can easily send a study link along with a
    message to another user, facilitating peer collaboration on a
•   Study Notes: Any user can enter notes for a study or select
    from a preset list of study expression, which can be viewed by
    any user accessing the study.
•   Key Images: Any user can save a key image for a study,
    facilitating communication of relevant imagery between users.

Version 2.2 Features
• Support 64 bit processing and operating
  – Benefit: Enables radiologist to load over 10,000
    images simultaneously.
• Add 64 Bit Edition optional license.
  – Benefit: Offers licensing control for customers
    purchasing the premium 64 bit edition.
• Support multiple interrupt sessions (one main
  session and four interrupt sessions).
  – Benefit: Enables users to manage multiple
    sessions to minimize the impact of interruptions.
                         CONFIDENTIAL                   9
Version 2.2 Features
• Support hover scrolling. The user does not need to click on a
  viewport to activate it first, they can simply start scrolling with
  their mouse wheel when they are hovered over a viewport and it
  will become the active viewport.
    – Benefit: Improved ease of use and minimizes number of clicks.
• Enable better handling of automatically loaded priors that are
  from a different modality from the current unread study.
    – Benefit: Further flexibility and control with configuring priors for
      viewing protocols.
• Update integration with OnBase for 64 bit support.
    – Benefit: Improved ease of use and enables customers to integrate
      with the latest version of OnBase.

Client Licensing
• License are assigned per client, not per user or
  concurrent users.
• Licensing is tied to the type of monitor(s) connected
  to the client.
• The application can detect the monitor type that is
  connected to the client and ensure that the proper
  license is assigned to that client.
• If a customer changes the monitor hardware, the
  application will detect the change and determine
  whether a license upgrade is needed.
• The site administrator will be able to view and
  manage licenses via the administrative GUI.

                          CONFIDENTIAL                    11
Licensing Types
• Two types of licenses
  – Principal
  – Associate
• The software and features are exactly the
  same for a Principal or Associate license.
• Principal licenses are for clients with 2MP
  Grayscale monitors or higher.
• Associate licenses are for clients with 2MP
  Color monitors or lower.

Optional Licenses
• A customer can also purchase additional
  optional licenses.
• These are loaded onto a client, in addition to
  the Associate or Principal license.
• Available Options:
  – Dictation
  – Electronic Documents
