DICOM Grid Collaborates with Mayo Clinic on Mobile Image Viewing Technology
Date:9/20/2012

PHOENIX, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DICOM Grid announced today that it has entered into a collaborative agreement for continued development of a mobile platform medical image viewer.  The intent is to enhance image distribution between Mayo Clinic, its physicians and referring physicians. The medical image viewer is specifically designed for both browser-based and iPad devices.

High tech imaging studies carry a big price tag: over 400 million medical procedures per year in the US involve at least one medical image, and 20% of imaging tests are repeated because different physician's offices cannot access earlier data resulting in $26.5 billion dollars in healthcare costs.

DICOM Grid's proprietary mobile technology allows doctors to exchange and view images without the geographic or institutional boundaries that affect traditional sharing of medical images. The mobile application allows doctors and providers to send medical images to a facility in advance of a physician visit so that hospitals can more efficiently evaluate and treat patients. Mayo Clinic will work alongside DICOM Grid to provide expertise from the clinical perspective.

"Mobile image viewing is paramount to our ability to deliver efficient, cost-effective patient care," said Dr. Jeremy Friese, Associate Chair of Radiology at Mayo Clinic. "For the Mayo system specifically, allowing both referring and Mayo physicians easy access to medical images at the point of care will prove to be very beneficial."

DICOM Grid has developed an extensive work-flow engine that enables the routing and sharing of medical images and related data over both local and wide-area networks. This flexibility has been critical for enabling large multi-hospital institutions such as Mayo Clinic to access and share medical images with physicians across a variety of mobile platforms.

"We are excited to work with one of the world's leading health care providers to realize the power of
