Carestream Viewer Gets FDA Clearance
Carestream today announced that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of its CARESTREAM Vue Motion medical image viewer with mobile devices such as Apple iPads in the U.S. The zero-footprint, Web-based viewer yields clinicians on-demand access to patient imaging data. It is already being used successfully with mobile devices in other countries worldwide, according to the vendor. The independent Vue Motion viewer can be integrated with other vendors’ PACS systems, DICOM archives, or XDS repositories, facilitating access to radiology images stored in various locations throughout a health care system. Vue Motion does not require downloading of dedicated applications or software, and there are no storage or technology requirements for users’ mobile devices, PCs or workstations.
