How do you pronounce Visage (vis·age)?
Any way you’d like (haha)! In North America, most people will say /’vi-zij/. In Australia and Europe, many will say /’vi-saj/.
Why is Visage 7 so fast?
Visage does not rely on compress-and-send legacy PACS technology. The Visage 7 server-side architecture utilizes a patented, highly-efficient, proprietary protocol between the client and server for maximum performance even over low bandwidth, high latency network connections. All image display via the Visage 7 smart-client is on-demand, and the Visage 7 never stores data to the local disk.
Is Visage 7 a hosted solution?
Visage 7 may be implemented with a high-availability architecture either in the public cloud, or on-premise (private cloud). Either implementation yields the same ultrafast performance, robust clinical capabilities and massive scale.
Does Visage 7 require Citrix?
Some Visage 7 customers use various versions of Citrix for their non-diagnostic use cases; however, Citrix is not required nor recommended for use with Visage 7.
Are any third-party components required for use with Visage 7?
The Visage 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform does not rely on any third-party components whatsoever. Every line of code, 100%, has been written by Visage Imaging.
Which browsers does Visage 7 support?
The Visage 7 smart-client is a completely self-contained app for both PC (Windows) and Mac (macOS), does not run in a browser and requires no third-party components whatsoever.
What core functionality is optional with the Visage 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform?
While all viewing, archive and workflow orchestration functionality is native to the Visage 7 Enterprise Imaging Platform, the archive (Visage 7 Open Archive) and workflow orchestration (Visage 7 Workflow) functionality is modular, and optional, based on an imaging organization’s existing investment and operational requirements for their go-forward architecture. The Visage AI Accelerator program is for likeminded institutions who have a forward-looking artificial intelligence strategy, and is invitation-only.

Our robust interoperability capabilities enable tight desktop integration to dozens of third-party viewers and tools that are available conveniently from your Visage 7 diagnostic workstation.
