Carestream Receives FDA Clearance Letter For Mobile Use Of Its Vue Motion Medical Image Viewer

Carestream has received a clearance letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of its Vue Motion medical image viewer with mobile devices such as Apple iPads in the United States. The zero-footprint, Web-based viewer enables convenient, on-demand access to patient imaging data by clinicians anytime, anywhere. The viewer is already being used successfully with mobile devices in other countries worldwide.

Since the independent Vue Motion viewer can be integrated with other vendors’ PACS systems, DICOM archives or XDS repositories, clinicians and referring physicians gain much faster and easier access to radiology images stored in various locations throughout a healthcare system.

Diana Nole, President, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream Health said, Our viewer’s ability to interface with many PACS and archiving systems delivers rapid image review for clinicians and referring physicians. Convenient mobile access goes a step further and can expedite the start of patient treatmen. This zero-footprint viewer also negates the cost of deploying and maintaining software across a healthcare system.
