Carestream Health received FDA clearance for use of its Vue Motion image view for clinical X-ray reading on mobile devices.
The approval covers reading - not just viewing - on iPhone 4s, iPad 2, Galaxy Note and Galaxy S III mobile devices, the company announced.
“Diagnostic review of X-ray images with mobile devices can expedite patient treatment decisions and enable better collaboration, which can ultimately help enhance patient care,” Neville Skudowitz, Carestream’s global product director for healthcare information solutions, said in a statement.
Carestream recommends that during diagnostic image review, radiology professions frequently and concurrently use Vue Motion viewing tools, such as zoom, pan, and window level adjustments. This will help maximize image contrast and detail sharpness of each image displayed using Vue Motion on portable and mobile devices, according to the company.
