FDA Clears Cloud-Based 3D/4D Visualization Solution for Anywhere Access

February 3, 2010 – The FDA granted 510(k) market clearance for Shina Systems’ 3Di advanced medical (3D/4D) visualization software that downloads over the Internet and provides a full suite of image processing and clinical analysis applications on any PC.

3Di delivers imaging data, advanced reformatting and viewing tools, as well as image processing on demand via a cloud environment. It eliminates dedicated 3D image processing workstations, enterprise servers and image preformatting by technologists, while providing interactive advanced visualizations anytime and anywhere. With convenient software-as-a-service (SaaS), pay-per-use pricing and using existing hardware and networks, 3Di is available for use with no upfront cost.

With its cloud-based architecture, 3Di also serves as a clearinghouse for sharing medical imaging studies among hospitals, physicians and patients. Fully secure to support HIPAA compliance, 3Di allows users to upload studies from any location and share them with authorized users anywhere, essentially creating a global online medical imaging consultation platform. Depending on their expertise, users have access to a spectrum of capabilities – from basic image review to specialized diagnostic tools. The application also provides an image communication engine for electronic and personal health records (EHRs and PHRs).

The 3Di advanced visualization suite includes general multimodality 3D reformations (MPR, MIP, volume rendering and related techniques), cardiac CT analysis, CT calcium scoring (WIP), virtual colonoscopy and PET/CT fusion (WIP). 3Di contributes to more accurate and efficient diagnosis by providing information more efficiently than 2D imaging. 3Di technology also will enable many imaging sites to capture additional revenue from existing image acquisition technology by adding new exam types.

The thin-client 3Di suite operates seamlessly from the local PC, as the user accesses imaging data – stored locally or remotely – and processes, manipulates and views images using the vast computing power of the 3Di cloud network. 3Di takes advantage of available bandwidth and local computing power to optimize performance and speed. The user interface and all functionality will integrate with a local PACS, while a bi-directional image synchronization feature ensures both the PACS and any 3Di offsite storage are up to date. All 3Di image data is stored on remote archives with multiple redundancy and support for HIPAA compliance.
