January 6, 2016 — Image Information Systems launched Med-Tab, the world’s first portable DICOM-calibrated medical image display, at the 2015 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 29-Dec. 3 in Chicago.

For the first time, imaging specialists are not tied to their workstation for premium quality image analysis, measurement and reporting. Med-Tab can be used for bedside image analysis, in surgery theaters, by on-call radiologists and in emergency situations. It was developed by a team of imaging professionals to solve the problem of needing access to medical image analysis without being tethered to the workstation. The device provides DICOM grayscale calibration not available previously in portable devices.

Users can work from almost anywhere using a Philips SpeechMike device as if they were at a typical workstation, according to Arpad Bischof, M.D., radiologist and co-creator of Med-Tab. Premium quality features include screen adaptability, an exclusive measuring pen, and a calibrator and calibration app to adjust grayscales according to DICOM standards.

Med-Tab has an anti-glare display with patented 11-bit DICOM GSDF hardware grayscale calibration and fixed calibrated brightness of ~300 Cd/m2. An HDMI port connects the device to a larger display (data projector) for peer sharing. An integrated ambient light sensor provides an indicator whether surrounding light is appropriate for image analysis.

For easier image analysis, the screen is 69 percent larger than the iPad Air 2, and 67 percent larger than the Galaxy Tab 4. Med-Tab runs with the Android 4.4 operating system and supports most major picture archiving and communication system (PACS) vendors using HTML5 zero footprint technology from Image Information Systems. It is available with Image’s zero footprint DICOM viewer, iQ-4VIEW.
