Oklahoma health system installs Merge PACS with mammo capabilities
St. Francis Health System, a multi-site, multi-specialty hospital in Tulsa, Okla., has signed a contract to upgrade from its existing PACS to the Merge Fusion PACS MX 3.0, a recently released version with the capabilities of Merge Mammo 7.10.

The Milwaukee-based Merge said its system is a single workstation environment with single worklist capability for general diagnostic imaging modalities, including digital x-ray, CT, MRI, PET and mammography images.

Fusion PACS MX allows studies to be assigned to radiologists regardless of location, obviating the need for paper records, the company said. Merge Mammo is a multi-modality, vendor neutral digital mammography workstation.

With 7,000 employees, the 918-bed health system includes five hospitals and multiple clinics and specialty programs across the greater Tulsa area.
