This new solution, which combines rigorous workflow requirements with the specialized 3D clinical functions typically associated with dedicated modality workstations or proprietary technology, allows us to enter the next generation in digital imaging technology
Atlanta (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
To advance its diagnostic image visualization technology, Accelarad, market leader in medical image cloud computing, has teamed up with Visage Imaging (ASX: PME) and will now offer the Visage 7 Universal Viewer application to power efficient thin client streaming for SeeMyRadiology.com (http://www.seemyradiology.com), Accelarad’s new online community for medical image exchange.
With the Visage 7 Universal Viewer, SeeMyRadiology.com users - physicians, radiologists, 3D laboratory technicians, and others can harness the power and performance of the Visage 7 state-of-the- art streaming technology complete with user defined workflow, enhanced image manipulation capability, and advanced clinical applications for 3-D imaging, making this technology fusion a powerful new market force in medical image exchange.
“This new solution, which combines rigorous workflow requirements with the specialized 3D clinical functions typically associated with dedicated modality workstations or proprietary technology, allows us to enter the next generation in digital imaging technology,” said Accelarad President Arman Sharafshahi. “We now offer an advanced technology solution to providers, who demand sophisticated tools yet need immediate access from any location on any platform. We are adding exceptional value, particularly in cardiology, neurology, and oncology, specialties that traditionally generate large datasets with complex manipulation requirements, which will allow all physicians to use standard PCs or Macs to access a very rich toolset via Visage’s thin-client technology,” said Sharafshahi.
The Visage 7 Universal Viewer was first introduced at RSNA in November 2009 and was received with great enthusiasm and market interest. This partnership with SeeMyRadiology.com creates a new robust market solution, explained Visage’s General Manager John Danahy. “With the SeeMyRadiology.com platform, our unique technology becomes more than just a diagnostic tool for radiologists and their staff. The complete solution provides an alternative to the capital intensive, vendor locked model that has dominated the imaging market in the past decade and leverages the power of low cost SaaS delivery with high functioning applications that offer unsurpassed value.”
SeeMyRadiology.com, an Accelarad venture, is an online community for medical image exchange that is revolutionizing how imaging facilities, physicians, and patients store, share, and access medical images and reports. Via a cloud computing platform, SeeMyRadiology.com allows for easy collaboration and communication among health care providers and patients, dramatically improving access, costs, speed, and mobility of medical image exchange throughout the continuum of care. By fully complying with HIPAA privacy and security rules, SeeMyRadiology.com safeguards total patient confidentiality.
