Carestream’s ImageView Software Passes Stringent Department of Defense Cybersecurity Requirements

Clearing medical device cybersecurity requirements from DoD delivers even more safety assurance for customers

Clearing medical device cybersecurity requirements from DoD delivers even more safety assurance for customers

July 23, 2020 — Carestream Health’s ImageView software has received the Risk Management Framework Authority to Operate from the Department of Defense, paving the way for streamlined installations for defense customers. Defense Health Agency (DHA) Cybersecurity Logistics (CyberLog), part of DHA’s Medical Logistics (MEDLOG) Directorate, is widely considered to have extremely rigorous cybersecurity requirements.

The Authority to Operate (ATO) process took only six months to complete, a rare occurrence given heightened cybersecurity efforts across the globe. With the ATO in place, Carestream’s cyber team has received accreditation for CARESTREAM ImageView Software v.1 in the Department of Defense (DoD), with plans to support Veteran Affairs in the future. A productive collaboration between Carestream’s Cyber, Information Technology and Governmental Solutions teams along with DoD authorities led to a successful ATO process.

“Carestream has a long-standing history of dedication to cybersecurity, for both our commercial and government customers globally,” said Garrett Huntley, Director of Government Solutions at Carestream. “Maintaining our ATO status and partnership with the Department of Defense and the Defense Health Agency through a rigorous Continuous Monitoring program is a top priority for Carestream. We are very proud to help provide our nation’s service men and women with the very best clinical care through the use of our innovative imaging technology.”

Clinical acquisition software designed to support advanced applications, the ImageView platform enables healthcare systems and hospitals to enhance productivity and patient care while supporting Carestream’s state-of-the-art image processing.

ImageView software is available with Carestream’s DRX-Evolution Plus SystemDRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray SystemDRX-Transportable System/Lite as well as the OnSight 3D Extremity Imaging System.

“We’re learning more and more about the changing cybersecurity needs and challenges organizations face as they quickly evolve. We strive to be very proactive in our approach to this and we have a team of experts focused on protecting the valuable information resources of our customers,” said Kendall Ryerson, Vice President of Corporate & Government Accounts at Carestream.

The ATO will allow Department of Defense customers to purchase Carestream products and connect the imaging systems to the DoD network immediately, reducing the time for approvals to purchase and install. Carestream’s ability to meet the ATO requirements also bodes well for its customers worldwide, providing additional confidence that the company’s imaging systems can be safely integrated into their own environments.

“The improvements we have made to comply with DoD implementation guidelines are now the default configuration for customers, allowing our products to meet and exceed product security and privacy considerations for Carestream customers,” added Michael LaLena, Chief Information Security Officer, Imaging Systems at Carestream.

Fig. 1 The basis of high-sensitivity SPION imaging at ultra-low magnetic fields.

(A) Magnetization of 25-nm SPIONs (green), gadolinium CA (Gd-DTPA/Magnevist, blue), and water (red) as a function of magnetic field strength (B0). (B) Magnetization as a function of magnetic field strength (B0) in the ULF (<10 mT) regime for the materials shown in (A). Superparamagnetic materials, such as SPIONs, are highly magnetized even at ULF. Paramagnetic materials, such as CAs based on gadolinium, and body tissues (which typically have diamagnetic susceptibilities close to water) have absolute magnetizations that increase linearly with field strength. Curves in (A) and (B) were reproduced from data in (3253) and reflect the magnetic moment per kilogram of compound. (C) Highly magnetized SPIONs (brown) interact with nearby 1H spins in water, shortening 1H relaxation times, and causing susceptibility-based shifts in Larmor frequency.
