Synapse Workstation Software is the multi-modality viewing software for Synapse, Fujifilm’s Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). Synapse Workstation Software provides viewing and manipulation of radiological data including images, reports, patient status and clinical information. It also provides for integrationsto clinical applications including dictation systems, RIS and three dimensional processing applications. It is a multipurpose, enterprise wide application used for Radiologist interpretation, in-house clinical review and physician desktop image & information access. Synapse Workstation Software is an entirely web-based, thin-client application using Internet technology at the foundation of itsdesign. The only locally installed component is an ActiveX control plug-in to Internet Explorer® on Microsoft® Windows®. This design allows for a user interface that takes advantage of the familiar functions of Internet Explorer and Windows, such as Back, Forward, Links, Favorites and right-click context menu while also providing powerful imaging functions necessary in today’s radiology departmentand beyond. As a thin-client application, Synapse is accessible by anyone connected to a Synapse web server via the Intranet or Internet over standard HTTP or a secure HTTPS (SSL) connection. While users in Synapse can be assigned different security levels to access patient and study folders and are assigned different privileges around their ability to save or modify
information permanently inthe Synapse database, all tools are available to all users regardless of their physical location or health provider function. Synapse is designed for the needs of the radiologist as well as clinicians, referring physicians, technologists and administrators from the same user application with the same tools and user interface.
