MIM Software‘s new Mobile MIM 3.0 software for diagnostic X-ray and ultrasound image review has been cleared by the FDA. It displays volume histograms, isodose curves, contours, and images for treatment plans, and allows clinicians to consult with each other wherever they are. The convenience of displaying radiological images to patients right at the bedside without having to bring in printouts is another welcome benefit.
The company also announced it is working with Accuray to soon launch a new app, called PlanTouch, that will allow a review of a CyberKnife interventional radiation oncology treatment plan right on an iOS device.
Mobile MIM is a thick client that brings the data to the device for fast and consistent manipulation, independent of network performance. Device-level hardware encryption provides security for HIPAA compliance, and users have the additional security option of removing data from the device after viewing. For rapid access, images are displayed as they download. Data can be downloaded to Mobile MIM using MIMcloud™ or an on-site MIM workstation.
With the release of Mobile MIM 3.0, MIM Software also plans to launch a co-branded version of the app with its partner Accuray Incorporated. The co-branded Accuray version of the app, PlanTouch™, will have an interface that allows physicians to review and approve a CyberKnife® treatment plan via a direct link.
