CLEVELAND, Jan. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - MIM Software Inc., a leading global provider of medical imaging software, announced today that Mobile MIM™ has been issued a Medical Device License by Health Canada for the addition of remote diagnostic X-ray and ultrasound viewing, as well as radiation treatment plan review and approval.
Mobile MIM 3.0 is now available on the Canadian Apple® App Store(SM) for the iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch®. The app includes sample images to demonstrate its expanded functionality.
Radiation oncologists can use Mobile MIM to review dose volume histograms, isodose curves, contours, and images for treatment plans – actions commonly restricted to a limited number of dedicated workstations. "Mobile MIM provides a timesaving alternative to treatment plan review and approval by providing the necessary data and visualization for decision making while simultaneously reducing contention on costly treatment planning systems," said Jerimy Brockway, Software Director at MIM™.
"Making Mobile MIM intuitive for radiation oncology was a primary goal, and we focused on creating the most natural and streamlined experience possible. The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive," commented Brockway.
"Not to be overlooked is the advent of viewing an X-ray on a hand-held device in a diagnostic capacity. This is a milestone for mobile health," added Brockway. Mobile MIM is capable of displaying very large images, more than 25 megapixels, with lossless data compression.
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.
MIM Software Inc. provides practical imaging solutions in the fields of radiation oncology, radiology, nuclear medicine, neuroimaging, and cardiac imaging. MIM offers solutions for PC and Mac® workstations, as well as mobile iOS and cloud-based platforms. MIM is a privately held company that sells its products globally to imaging centers, hospitals, specialty clinics, research organizations, and pharmaceutical companies.
