ALI Technologies of Vancouver, BC, has introduced version 2.0 of its UltraWeb package, which is designed to provide secure, cost-effective access to medical images and reports over the Internet or an intranet with a Windows-based PC and a standard Web browser. Using UltraWeb, healthcare providers gain online access to images stored in the ALI UltraPACS database, regardless of whether they are in the office, at home, or within the hospital. UltraWeb uses Java technology and selectable image compression (wavelet or JPEG), with ratios ranging from 10:1 to 50:1. Users can search the database by patient name, patient ID, or exam date, just as they would from an ALI diagnostic workstation, and have access to the same image manipulation tools.

In related news, ALI has introduced UltraPACS v. 4.2, which includes an Oracle 8i database, advanced search features, and digital video tools.
