April 19, 2011 — A new clinical radiology workstation product is now commercially available. The ClearCanvas Workstation, Clinical Edition, by ClearCanvas, was previously only offered as an open source application. ClearCanvas open source software has been employed for more than five years, with more than 14,000 worldwide users in a number of clinical settings.
ClearCanvas RIS/PACS recently received FDA 510(k) clearance. The workstation is available for purchase from the eStore on the ClearCanvas website as well as through a small but rapidly growing number of resellers worldwide. The company expects to release a commercial version of its picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) software suite in Q2 2011, with the commercial release of its radiology information system (RIS) following in Q4 2011.
Additional versions of the workstation are already planned for 2011. Product upgrades and technical support are included free of charge during the first license year. The company will continue to release new versions of its open source software as well.
