Several industrial companies which are specialized in Picture Archival Computer Systems (PACS) and advanced medical imaging solutions benefit from the computational power, delivered by Silicon Graphics' visual computing and high-performance systems.

The high Central Processing Unit (CPU) and memory bandwidth of the Origin product line of servers turns the Origin200 Server into an ideal match for DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) based medical visualization systems, such as the new MEDx Registry 1.5 TeraByte scaleable divisional PACS solution.

This low-cost DICOM system has been developed by Sensor Systems. The MEDx portable image processing software package is extremely suitable to display both 2D and 3D medical images. The programme provides easy to handle control menus which can be used in a window display system, such as the X Window System. The MEDx software is fully supported across the Silicon Graphics' product lines.

CHILI is the second system to receive strong back-up from Silicon Graphics' workstations. The newest version of this award-winning second generation teleradiology system is supported by the O2 workstation. The job is being performed in conjunction with the German Cancer Research Center and the technology transfer company Steinbeis-Transferzentrum Medizinische Informatik, based in Heidelberg, Germany.

In addition, the latest Perceptive medical image management solutions that are provided by RASNA Imaging Systems, also have operating support from the O2 system. The fourth company relying on Silicon Graphics computing power is DOME.

DOME Imaging Systems, Inc. promotes the introduction of filmless radiology departments through the development of high-resolution imaging displays. Both O2 and OCTANE workstations support the industry-standard DOME technology which enables PACS and teleradiology applications, as well as the visualization of digital X-ray images.
