February 2, 2015 — Viztek announced 20 percent year-over-year increase in software sales for the 2013-2014 calendar year. As physicians today are competing with hospital systems for the purchase of walk-in urgent care clinics, and forming multi-specialty clinics, Viztek was able to successfully capitalize on this trend with its RIS and PACS solutions. Additionally, the expansion of the Viztek DR product line, with the introduction of the ViZion + wireless DR panel and the rapid adoption of the Viztek U-Arm and straight-arm bolstered DR sales up 25 percent over the previous year.

Introduced in late 2013, Viztek's Exa PACS gained FDA-approval in 2014. The completely web-based technology is compatible with all devices and operating systems providing efficiency and productivity to hospitals, imaging centers and teleradiology groups via unprecedented PACS accessibility and utility for end users.

In late 2014, Viztek announced that it was the first company to proactively license and provide true zero footprint viewing for radiologists and referring physicians. Not only can radiologists view reports regardless of the operating system or the age of the computer, Viztek has also added server-side rendering for the added speed of download.

Also instrumental to the company's 2014 growth was the introduction of the ViZion + wireless DR panel. The new DR panel delivers a cost-effective option for the urgent care, orthopedic and hospital settings. Viztek's new U-Arm DR and Overhead Tube Crane (OTC) systems were unveiled for the first time in late 2014. Both systems were designed to maximize ease-of-use and versatility and will support the company's continued DR market growth in 2015.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
