CLEVELAND, July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- MIMvista Corp., a leading global provider of medical imaging and fusion software, announced the availability of a native iPhone version of their multi-modality imaging application for iPhone and iPod touch on the Apple App Store beginning today.
This innovative software allows a doctor or patient to view medical images remotely, without access to an imaging workstation.
"Imagine a doctor sitting with her patient, sharing images with him, iPhone to iPhone, or an oncologist interactively reviewing a radiation treatment plan," said Mark Cain, MIMvista Chief Technical Officer. "We have taken a complex desktop application, removed it from the realm of black art, and placed it in the hands of physicians and patients -- and we have only just scratched the surface."
This application provides multi-planar reconstruction of data sets from CT, PET, MRI and SPECT, as well as multi-modality image fusion. With the multi-touch interface, users can adjust image sets and planes, fusion blending, window/level, and zoom. All data is transferred and stored with secure encryption to ensure patient privacy.
Peter F. Faulhaber, MD, Director of Clinical PET for University Hospitals at Case Medical Center commented, "The MIM application for the iPhone is the essence of cool for a radiologist who thrives on image display. The software is fast and intuitive. I think referring physicians will be to be able to seamlessly review a patient's images while consulting over the phone. Patients will be even more impressed."
The release of the MIM for the iPhone application includes sample images. Individual patient data can also be downloaded from a MIM Workstation or Storage Server. This initial release is free from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at http://www.itunes.com/appstore/ under the category, Healthcare & Fitness. It is ideal for image review by referring physicians but is not intended for diagnostic purposes. A fully featured MIM Pro for the iPhone, for physician and radiology use, will be available in the near future.
MIMvista also won the Apple Design Award for Best iPhone Healthcare &
