FUJIFILM’S SYNAPSE VNA REACHES MILESTONE, SERVING OVER 300 ONCOLOGY SITES WORLDWIDE

 

Stamford, CT, September 20, 2016 (Booth #8000)The TeraMedica Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of diagnostic imaging products and medical informatics solutions, recently announced a significant business milestone in serving cancer center customers. The company’s Synapse VNA, an enterprise-wide medical information and image management solution, is now installed at more than 300 oncology facilities worldwide for the management of cancer treatment data.

 

“Fujifilm truly dominates the oncology VNA space both for our innovative technology and also our knowledge of what it takes to deliver better cancer care,” said Greg Strowig, Vice President, TeraMedica Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems, U.S.A., Inc. “Cancer centers across the globe have turned to us because of our unparalleled experience with the management of cancer treatment data.”

 

The over 300 oncology facilities worldwide that use Synapse VNA technology interface with a total of over 800 linear accelerators. Synapse VNA manages all clinical oncology department data, both DICOM and non-DICOM, including radiology diagnostic images, radiation treatment plans, and various other clinical data used in the treatment of cancer patients— using the most scalable single storage solution available. 

 

Many of the world’s most reputable oncology facilities rely on Synapse VNA for the ability to quickly access and share diagnosis and treatment plan information, as well as keep data secure, backed up, and readily accessible for audit in a disaster recovery/business continuance environment.

 

Johns Hopkins—one of only 45 cancer centers in the U.S. designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a Comprehensive Cancer Center— implemented Synapse VNA 7 years ago. Moffitt Cancer Center—ranked the number 6 cancer center in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 annual report of top cancer hospitals— is in the process of installation.

 

Fujifilm will showcase Synapse VNA at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiation and Oncology (ASTRO) 2016 Annual Meeting to be held September 25-28, 2016, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, MA.
