Carestream has received FDA clearance for the use of its Vue Motion medical image viewer on mobile devices. Vue Motion is a HTML5 web-based viewer which does not require downloading of any dedicated software or applications, and is suitable for a variety of mobile devices, including tablets such as the iPad. Rendering of the images happens on the server back-end, just as all image data is stored on the server, requiring no storage space on the device.
Vue Motion can pull in and display clinical data from multiple sources, providing a full report history
and relevant prior exams and supporting data. It can be integrated with other vendors’ PACS systems, DICOM archives or XDS repositories. In addition to medical image files, several other file types are supported including PDF, JPEG and AVI. The viewer can also be embedded in a HIS or EMR portal to allow access with a single log-in. Collaboration with other users is possible through sticky notes, and examinations can be sent to colleagues for second opinions by simply sharing a link.
Interestingly, all promotional material shows Vue Motion being accessed on an iPad through Google Chrome, which is not available natively on iOS. It looks like the PR-department has done some over-enthusiastic Photoshopping here (or the system is unnecessarily being accessed through a remote desktop connection), because as you can see in the video below the HTML5 technology enables access directly through the iPad’s native web browser:
