Tools that Improve
Patient Safety

Peer-reviewed research has shown that patient
safety, surgical confidence1 and surgical
effectiveness2 were all improved when using
Synapse 3D.

Greater Surgical Effectiveness: Made Possible Through Efficient Workflows

Doctors and surgeons are busier than ever. Synapse 3D is integrated with Synapse PACS and can be easily launched without multiple steps, making it much more accessible to surgeons and collaborators. Synapse 3D can advance patient care, by making workflow more efficient and intuitive; removing duplicated steps without compromising patient security. Collaboration is easier than ever, with one-click access from any Synapse client. Synapse 3D makes clinically vital tools more easily accessible, and can help surgeons save valuable time while improving patient safety and surgical confidence2.

Case Study: Synapse 3D Aids in Decision to Avoid Invasive Surgery

A young girl presented with a pencil in the eye. The surgeon needed to know immediately if invasive surgery was required. The radiologist was able to log into Synapse 3D remotely, and quickly analyze that while the pencil did pierce the brain, there were no significant vascular injuries. With this knowledge the surgeon was able to remove the pencil, saving the child from invasive surgery. (images courtesy Boston Children's Hospital)
