Meet Edgardo Cruz

Edgardo Cruz is the IT Manager over at Synergy, a Chilean company providing technological services to consumers in Chile. Cruz has been using Horos for about two years now. Previously he and the company were both using the “lite” version of a separate platform. However, once the open source code began to get pulled, so did the free features that were necessary for medical professionals to make a diagnosis. This transition is how Cruz became a Horos evangelist. Today, Horos is used as an add on for DCM4CHEE PACS. It enables DICOM processes and web access for customer sites. For the most part, Cruz and Synergy work with MRIs, CTs, X-Rays, and Ultrasounds.
