Mobile App Approved by Health Canada for Diagnostic Viewing

April 1, 2011 – A mobile app for the remote diagnostic viewing of several imaging modalities has been approved in Canada. Mobile MIM, from MIM Software, has been issued a Medical Device License by Health Canada and is available on the Canadia App Store.

It has been approved for viewing CT, PET, MRI, and SPECT images on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

The app is free to download and includes sample images to demonstrate its functionality. Physicians and other medical professionals can download images to the device using MIMcloud (www.mimcloud.com), an Internet-based service that allows secure upload and download of encrypted medical data. Alternatively, a MIM workstation can be used at a facility to transmit the images to the app. It is indicated for use only when the physician does not have access to a workstation.

It is designed as a thick client, which means the data is downloaded to the device for viewing instead of being streamed to the device from a server. To secure the protected health information, it provides "at rest" encryption through the use of a passcode and 128-bit AES encryption from within the app. All transfers use SSL encryption.

The app features data set interaction using standard tools, such as zoom, pan, window and level, and it displays volumetric data with multi-planar reconstruction. The physician can measure distance and intensity values, annotate and display regions of interest.

It is intended for use by medical professionals, not patients. The company plans to release a second app intended for patients, VueMe.

The app is available for free from the U.S. App Store on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
