MIMvista Inc., a medical imaging company out of Cleveland, Ohio, has developed a nifty application for the Apple iPhone that intuitively presents radiological images in all sorts of ways.
From the Apple Design Awards page for the Best iPhone Healthcare & Fitness Application:
MIM for iPhone is a revolutionary medical imaging application that provides multi-planar reconstruction of fused data sets such as PET/CT, which are crucial in diagnosing cancer. MIM lets physicians retrieve patient images wirelessly on their iPhone or iPod touch, manipulate and adjust them using simple gestures to isolate crucial pieces of data, and gather important data for a patient diagnosis on their rounds. MIM’s features include true dynamic multi-modality image fusion, multi-planar volumetric image reconstruction, linear measurement tools, Quantitative Standardized Uptake Value ROI, fusion blending between PET/CT and PET/MR, and display of PET, CT, MR, and Nuclear Medicine images. MIM takes advantage of technologies including Core Animation, Foundation/Core Foundation, UIKit, WebKit, and the accelerometer.
