Atlanta (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
Accelarad, the nation's leading cloud-based medical image sharing solution, announces the expansion of their partnership with Mint Medical Education, through the launch of an online ultrasound review tool. Mint Medical, a San Francisco-based provider of imaging services, training and education chose Accelarad to provide a cloud based medical image management platform that could seamlessly integrate with their learning management system and allow students to view and manipulate ultrasound images from any computer or mobile device.
The online vascular ultrasound review course provides access to over 500 ultrasound cases for evaluation and assessment of physician’s interpretation skills. It is designed for radiologists, cardiologists and vascular surgeons to prepare for and meet key continuing education certification requirements. Medical students and physicians are presented with patient indication and images collected from diagnostic cases across carotid, venous, arterial and abdominal vascular scans. The new learning management system provides immediate feedback on the user’s interpretations of the ultrasound.
"Our new learning management system provides our students access to medical training and education anywhere and anytime," said Brad Hummel, Mint Medical CEO. "We needed a medical imaging system that offered the same capability. Accelarad’s cloud-based infrastructure was the perfect fit, and the flexibility and responsiveness that their team has demonstrated over the years is just what was needed to develop an innovative online tool like this one."
"We are excited to be working with Mint Medical as they roll out their medical education and training tools online," said Arman Sharafshahi, president of Accelarad. "We have been providing solutions to the company’s imaging services division for years, and this case study review system is a real innovation in online learning for ultrasound. It is an ideal application for Accelarad, which is fully API-enabled and designed to combine the ease and convenience of social networking with the security and precision that the healthcare industry demands."
Accelarad’s partnership with Mint Medical is an example of the company’s expertise in delivering medical image repository solutions for a wide range of applications that need to be image enabled.
