October 13, 2011 — Candelis Inc. today announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Astra cloud-hosted suite of software services, which includes Astra Plus, Astra Lite and Astra Mobile.
Astra Plus is a downloadable software application which enables users to securely send and receive imaging studies and reports across a WAN and to route studies across a LAN via DICOM. Studies and reports can be viewed, displayed, printed and archived using tools provided within the application. By facilitating the sharing and distribution of medical imaging studies and reports, Astra Plus enhances patient care and outcomes and eliminates the need for potentially harmful and costly duplicate imaging procedures.
Astra Lite is a true thin client, browser-agnostic tool providing referring physicians with a unified portal for the viewing of medical imaging reports and embedded key images. The physician can optionally download and save a full-fidelity PDF of the report. Astra Lite provides a highly secure means of delivery of radiologist reports and findings to referring physicians, surgeons and clinicians, thereby improving patient care.
Astra Mobile, developed specifically for Apple’s iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, enables users to receive, view, download and print medical reports and key images anywhere in the world.
