Carestream Receives FDA Clearance Letter For Mobile Use Of Its Vue Motion Medical Image Viewer

November 9, 2011 – Carestream has received a clearance letter 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 United States. The zero-footprint, Web-based viewer enables convenient, on-demand access to patient imaging data by clinicians anytime, anywhere. The viewer is already being used successfully with mobile devices in other countries worldwide.

Since the independent Vue Motion viewer can be integrated with other vendors’ picture archive and communications systems (PACS), digital imaging and communication in medicine (DICOM) archives or XDS repositories, clinicians and referring physicians gain much faster and easier access to radiology images stored in various locations throughout a healthcare system.

“Our viewer’s ability to interface with many PACS and archiving systems delivers rapid image review for clinicians and referring physicians. Convenient mobile access goes a step further and can expedite the start of patient treatment,” said Diana Nole, president, digital medical solutions, Carestream Health. “This zero-footprint viewer also negates the cost of deploying and maintaining software across a healthcare system.”

Vue Motion does not require downloading of dedicated applications or software. There are no storage or technology requirements for users’ mobile devices, PCs or workstations. Its intuitive design can also minimize training, which encourages rapid adoption by healthcare providers worldwide.

“With Vue Motion we can quickly and easily make reports, images and prior exams available to the dozens of staff physicians, referring physicians and specialists we serve. The interface is so easy to use it takes only five minutes to be proficient, and even MR and CT images load quickly,” said Scott Stewart, Manager of Information Services, Rochelle Community Hospital, Rochelle, Ill. “Another key advantage is that it enhances data transfer with our EMR. We are extremely satisfied with its performance.”
