September 19, 2012 — Aycan Medical Systems announced today it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for Aycan mobile, an iPad app for teleradiology.
Designed to quickly, easily and securely transfer DICOM images from hospitals and imaging centers to on-call and other radiologists and referring physicians with an iPad, Aycan mobile’s simple interface and robust feature set make it the ideal tool for remote review, interpretation and diagnosis of radiological images; reviewing images at patient bedsides; teleconsulting with colleagues; distributing images in-house and much more. Together with Aycan OsiriX Pro, a cost-efficient post-processing workstation, Aycan mobile improves workflow with key features including lossless JPEG2000 compression, automatic 256-bit AES encryption, and multiple series comparison and synchronization. Aycan mobile has both FDA 510(k) clearance and CE mark.
“This solution supports the growing demand for remote and portable access to medical images while lowering costs,” said Frank Burkhardt, director of North & Latin American Operations for Aycan. “Aycan mobile allows radiologists to work remotely more easily and to better communicate/collaborate with referring physicians and other medical personnel, helping to improve patient access to services, especially in rural areas.”
Aycan OsiriX Pro, a required system component, is an FDA- and CE-certified, cost-effective, highly functional 64-bit workstation for conventional, multislice and other image reading.
The Aycan mobile software program is used to display medical images for diagnosis from computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) modalities only. Aycan mobile provides wireless and portable access to medical images. This device is not intended to replace full workstations and should be used only when there is no access to a workstation. This device is not to be used for mammography.
