January 29, 2019 — EBM Technologies announced that its vendor-neutral, remote reading system [email protected] has been granted Class II U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for diagnostic reading of radiological images. The system can benefit radiologists by untethering them from traditional fixed workstations and paving the way for greater work flexibility and financial efficiencies. With [email protected], radiologists can now interpret images and make diagnosis independent of their location.
The [email protected] system turns an off-the-shelf iPad Pro into a medical display, allowing radiologists to view images from any picture archiving and communication system/radiology information system (PACS/RIS) for remote diagnostic reading when VPN access is available. Radiologists simply need to pack a pair of iPad Pros and transform them into diagnostic, reading-capable devices, which can be achieved in less than one minute. Users simply connect two iPad lightning cables to a Windows 8 or above computer, or laptop USB ports, then bring in images through [email protected] The system is highly secure as it uses lightning cables for data transmission to ensure solid data security. Once the device is turned off all image pixel data on the screen is erased, eliminating HIPAA concerns.
