Echocardiography Atlas Allows Reference on iPhone


June 14, 2010 – Common cardiac imaging techniques, images and videos of echocardiography are available using an interactive learning and reference iPhone application. Modality Inc. released its Echocardiography Atlas application during the American Society of Echocardiography 21st Annual Scientific Sessions, June 13-15 in San Diego.

The application is comprised of 250 annotated images and 189 videos, encompassing a wide range of cardiac pathology. Echocardiography Atlas is edited by Scott D. Solomon, M.D., of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. It is designed as a native application for iPhone and iPod touch, and is compatible with iPad.

“Cardiovascular ultrasound technology is advancing rapidly, which leads to better patient care and, ultimately, more lives saved,” said Solomon, who directs the noninvasive cardiac laboratory and serves as an associate professor at Harvard Medical School. “Interactive imaging applications that can be carried conveniently on a mobile device unlock new opportunities for clinical training and patient education.”

The atlas presents users with 12 chapters of normal and abnormal echocardiograms, encompassing a wide range of cardiac pathology, and utilizes a custom viewer solution created by Modality that allows users to watch detailed, looping echocardiograms. Users may zoom and pan while the stacked images play, or pause to manipulate frame by frame. Like all Modality apps, content is locally stored on the device to deliver rapid access, without the need for a network connection.
