November 14, 2012

Vital Images Inc. announced the FDA has granted 510(k) clearance for 3D viewing through the VitreaView universal viewer.

Vital Images Inc., a Toshiba Medical Systems Group company, has received FDA 510(k) clearance for 3D viewing through the VitreaView universal viewer, the company announced.

The advanced visualization and analysis company introduced VitreaView in June 2011. The viewer is used as a communication tool for DICOM and non-DICOM medical images through a standardized viewer, so clinicians can access the images through various systems.

“Now with 3D and tablet capabilities available via VitreaView, our customers, particularly referring physicians and clinicians, have more functionality and easier access to the tools they need,” Erkan Akyuz, president and CEO of Vital Images, said in a statement. “Also, with access to images through the EMR as part of the Stage 2 Meaningful Use criteria, VitreaView integrated with a certified EMR enables the ability to meet this objective, with a toolset and infrastructure that also meets the needs of clinical users and IT administrators.”
