GE Healthcare has released an iPhone app aimed at radiologists which shows off sample images and videos from GE Healthcare imaging systems. It was demonstrated recently at RSNA 2009. Currently almost a hundred images and videos from the OPTIMA450W MRI system are included, and the app will be updated periodically adding image sets from other products including x-ray, ultrasound and PET systems.
Although GE boldy states “Radiologists, there is an iPhone app for you too!”, we suspect it will be of more use in the hands of sales representatives. From the press release:
“There are times when you could only meet the radiologist at the hallway of the hospital for 30 seconds. Now with this application we can show them right there more than 100 clinical images and videos”.
Nevertheless it is a nifty marketing tool and it might come handy the next time you are shopping for a new MRI system for your hospital.
See the following video for a demonstration of the app:
