New Cloud-Based Zero-Footprint Exam-Browser

June 7, 2011 - CoActiv introduced Exam-Browser, a cloud-based, zero-footprint, universal clinical viewer that enables anywhere, anytime review of medical images and reports. With the new Exam-Browser, CoActiv hospital and imaging center clients storing images in CoActiv’s vendor-neutral Exam Vault cloud-based archive can enable users to view and manipulate exams with speed from virtually any browser-enabled computer or mobile device, anywhere in the world, quickly and securely. This includes Windows, Linux and Mac PCs as well as most Smartphones and tablets, including the iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android phones, HP Slate, Motorola Xoom, T-Mobile Slate, CoActiv Exam-Pad, Samsung Galaxy, Blackberry Torch and more. The system operates using wired, Wi-Fi or 3G/4G mobile Internet connectivity.

Exam-Browser can easily support multiple simultaneous users in different locations for true real-time interactive virtual consultation and collaborations. It is also a full-function, flexible and easy-to-use tool for interactive image viewing by referring physicians.

The new CoActiv browser supports a full range of modalities and image formats including 2-D, multi-planar reformatting (MPR), 3-D and even echocardiology with full cine. It allows comprehensive image manipulation with window/level, zoom, pan, rotate and more in either single or multiple window formats. Utilizing CoActiv’s super-computing cloud servers, the system formats images remotely and streams them quickly to users wherever located. The power of the local device is no longer a significant limiting factor on the speed of medical image processing. Now, for the first time even on a slow PC or mobile device, instant 3-D reconstructions of CT exams with hundreds of images can be performed in mere seconds.

Also for the first time, with Exam-Browser’s collaborative capabilities, radiologists, referring physicians and even patients can simultaneously view and discuss images together in real time. Physicians can easily zoom into areas of interest on X-ray exams, scroll through computed tomography (CT) slices with speed and even flip and rotate 3-D images. All collaborating participants can independently utilize their mouse on a PC or their fingers on a mobile device to point to and highlight areas of interest and manipulate and annotate images using a broad range of tools. The system is fully HIPAA-compliant and secure. It requires no local software installation for operation, even for advanced functionalities. All image views can be bookmarked and saved back to the CoActiv Quad-Redundant Archive.

Exam-Browser log-in is simple. Registered, authorized users click a link and input a username and password. When the application opens, it presents an easily searchable list of all studies available to that user. This exam list can be filtered and sorted by patient name, date, modality, description and more. To maximize speed and image clarity, the browser-based application automatically optimizes for available bandwidth and network latency.

For day-to-day communications with referring physicians, hospitals and imaging centers can now offer a customized internet portal accessible from virtually anywhere via PC or mobile device. Patients can also be enabled to view their images in collaboration with a radiologist, referring physician or both simultaneously.
