Fujifilm is a pioneer in diagnostic imaging and information systems for healthcare, with a range of constantly evolving, clinically proven, products and technologies designed to assist medical professionals perform efficiently and effectively.  The company is pleased to announce the launch of its new generation Synapse PACS solution, providing XDS consumer functionality and support of the Imaging Object Change Management (IOCM) profile as standard. The Synapse PACS product is developed and maintained globally by Fujifilm. The latest version of Synapse PACS, version 4.3.220, which was released in December 2014 incorporates the IOCM IHE profile, adding to the XDS consumer functionality already inherent in Synapse PACS. Imaging Object Change Management (IOCM) is an IHE integration profile for managing and synchronizing DICOM objects across data repositories. Generally known as an Image Lifecycle Management profile, IOCM specifies how one actor communicates local changes applied on existing imaging objects to other actors that manage copies of the modified imaging objects in their own local systems. The supported changes include the deletion of images, series or an entire study from PACS. Commenting on this ground breaking achievement, Opey Olorunlero, Synapse Product Manager at Fujifilm said: "Fujifilm has once again demonstrated why it is renowned as a market leader in product innovation. Fujifilm adopts a standards-based approach to product development across its imaging informatics portfolio, enabling interoperability with other hospital systems". He added that "the latest released version of Synapse PACS, v 4.3.220 is natively IOCM compliant and also a native XDS consumer". This future proofs Synapse PACS customers, ensuring that they do not have to buy a separate XDS viewer for use in their XDS environment".
