Imaging meets IT: SYNAPSE delivers outstanding medical connectivity

In 1983, Fujifilm launched Fuji Computed Radiography (FCR), becoming the first company in the world to offer a digital X-ray diagnostic imaging system. Medical professionals quickly learned the merits of digital diagnostic images, including ease of storage and processing. They found that images from a variety of tests and procedures could be shared within and among facilities, and the images could even be used for remote diagnosis and consultation.

Recognizing this trend, Fujifilm saw the opportunity to leverage the technologies it had developed for FCR and contribute to the evolution of connectivity within and among medical facilities. Thus inspired, Fujifilm developed SYNAPSE, a medical IT solution that empowers users to comprehensively manage medical diagnostic images, share them within and among medical facilities, and process them for specific diagnostic applications.
