Web based PACS imaging system, press release today announces the ability to also view images on an IPhone. The system uses a standard web browser. Amazing how far this technology has come. Even if you are not an MD, this page is well worth looking at, even from a patient's standpoint. BD
The WebPAX ® is HeartIT's scalable solution for all of your image management needs. WebPAX ® eliminates the need for expensive workstations by using Heart IT's patented processes to integrate the data from your disparate DICOM-compliant imaging devices into a single system based entirely on World Wide Web (WWW) standards. Attending physicians, referring physicians, and patients can review any imaging study from the comfort of their office, a computer in the nurses' station, or a laptop at home using nothing more than a standard web browser such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Netscape.
Only HeartIT's WebPAX ® system is specifically designed for web viewing from the ground up, and uses proprietary, patent-protected processes to ensure that the images appear on the web exactly as physicians want to see them.
For the first time physicians can avoid shuffling through multiple pull-down menus in order to simply view two movies playing simultaneously, side-by-side, and at physiologic frame rates. And no more fumbling to adjust the window/ level for each movie.
Significant savings over traditional PACS
Eliminates need for expensive, proprietary hardware and software
