Apple's New iPAD Gets a PACS App

Apple releases the iPAD.

February 1, 2010 - According to a local Apple store attendant, the number of iPhone applications in existence has reached nearly 140,000. Knock off a few zeros and you'll get a better idea of how may iPhone apps for radiology are available, and that number is growing fast.

Last week Apple introduced the iPAD, which features a high-resolution 9.7-inch (measured diagonally) LED screen and runs the full range of iPhone applications with the benefit of a much larger, easier-to-manipulate dashboard and unprecedented true-to-life display. The device is extremely lightweight, offering physicians the truly portable, high-quality image accessibility and display that they need.

With radiology applications already abundant for the iPhone, expect to see these migrate to the iPAD. You can start with the EXAM-PACS touch screen image viewing for the recently announced Apple iPad large-screen digital viewing and communications device.

Based on the existing EXAM-PACS iPhone image viewing system by CoActiv Medical, the new iPad system will support bi-directional data communication between a PACS and any iPad using the new device’s built-in WiFi capabilities. This version of EXAM-PACS for iPad will also be fully compatible with the Apple iPad 3G model scheduled for release in April. The updated 3G model will allow connectivity for anywhere, anytime image viewing.
This iPAD app is designed to enable secure DICOM query/retrieve functionality, and also allows files to be pushed directly to the device over WiFi and 3G connections. Once images arrive on the mobile device, they may be viewed using the full range of iPad’s Touch Screen capabilities, including scroll, pan, zoom and window and level and measurement functions.

All manipulated and annotated images may be instantly saved locally on the device as JPG files and emailed or sent via messaging to anyone, anywhere in a matter of seconds.

EXAM-PACS for iPad communication is enabled by a bi-directional integration with the OsiriX Mobile viewer, which will run on the iPad and requires no additional software installation.
