Carestream Receives Its First FDA Clearance for Reading Medical Images on Multiple Mobile Platforms

Motion Cleared for Reading of X-ray Exams on Apple and Samsung
Mobile Devices

Carestream Health has received FDA clearance for use of its Vue
Motion image viewer for clinical reading of medical X-ray exams
using iPhone 4s, iPad 2, Galaxy Note® and Galaxy S® III mobile devices.

“This clearance allows physicians and specialists to read—not just
view—medical images on Apple and Samsung mobile phones and tablets.
Diagnostic review of X-ray images with mobile devices can expedite
patient treatment decisions and enable better collaboration, which can
ultimately help enhance patient care,” said Neville Skudowitz,
Carestream’s Global Product Director for Healthcare Information
Solutions. “Carestream is the first enterprise-level healthcare IT
supplier to receive its FDA clearance for image reading on more than one
mobile platform and operating system.”

Carestream’s development of zero footprint technology complements the
“Bring Your Own Device” enterprise strategy that enables flexible data
access by end users. Combined with DICOM including native 3D server-side
rendering as well as non-DICOM display, Vue Motion is well positioned as
a universal clinical viewer.

Carestream recommends that during diagnostic image review, frequent and
concurrent usage of Vue Motion viewing tools (such as zoom, pan, and
window level adjustments) be used. This will help maximize image
contrast and detail sharpness of each image displayed using Vue Motion
on portable and mobile devices. Caution should be taken while viewing CR
and DR images to ensure optimal contrast and detail sharpness.

Carestream experts will discuss Carestream’s Vue
portfolio of healthcare IT solutions at the upcoming HIMSS 2014
conference that will be held Feb. 24-27 at the Orlando Convention
Center, Orlando, Fla. To view information about Carestream products
