iPhone Medical Image Viewer

Ah, the iPhone. How did that ad go? "Great way to flip through your music, your videos, your phone contacts, your medical images..." Say that again?

Best of all, this is no static photo.

Lots of physicians are lusting over the iPhone, hoping to convince conservative health care CIOs to buy in. Heart Imaging Technologies is offering a non-proprietary PACS (picture archiving communication and storage) systems, as opposed to others that are tied to specific hardware.

Heart Imaging Technologies also provides the ability to "drill-down" to get full detail for the doctors who need it.

Physicians can simply click on a web link sent via email by one of their colleagues, enter their password, and, for example, instantly view movies of a patient’s beating heart halfway around the world. They can even put their colleagues on speakerphone and carry on a medical consultation while simultaneously browsing through the imaging results.

Medical images displayed in a web browser have traditionally been of lower quality and therefore had limited diagnostic utility. This technology is the first to provide physicians with the ability to drill-down and view medical images, including movies, on a hand-held device.

“Patient privacy is obviously a critically-important issue on the internet,” said Brent Reed, HeartIT’s Director of Software Development. “Fortunately, medical privacy concerns can be addressed using the same encryption technologies employed by online banking and credit card transactions.”

The iPhone's high definition screen is a real plus for this application.
