May 15, 2013 — Heart Imaging Technologies has released its WebPax Universal Viewer as an addition to its product portfolio. The new system allows hospitals and clinics to add Web-based, fully diagnostic image viewing to their existing infrastructure for both radiology as well as complex moving cardiology images. The WebPax Universal Viewer offers the same Web-based, zero-footprint image viewing technology that was first developed and patented by Heart Imaging Technologies.
This means that the medical images can be viewed on any computer (PC or Mac) with any Web browser. They can also be viewed on mobile platforms such as tablets and smart phones. There is no need to download, install or maintain any additional software. The Universal Viewer is intended to be used with any existing picture archive and communications system (PACS) or vendor neutral archive (VNA) infrastructure to provide Web-based image viewing of all medical images including both radiology and cardiology.
Additionally, the WebPax Universal Viewer can be easily interfaced with an electronic medical records (EMR) application in order to integrate images to the patient's electronic medical record. Heart IT has already developed and implemented interfaces for the leading EMR applications.
"The WebPax Universal Viewer is a sophisticated product that provides Web-based, zero-footprint viewing for all radiology and cardiology modalities. Complex cardiology images play automatically at their native frame rate without requiring the user to click a play button in order to view a beating heart,” said Brent Reed, chief technology officer of Heart IT. “Additionally, we apply proprietary algorithms that display both radiology and cardiology images at an optimum window and level, helping reduce the time and effort physicians spend adjusting images.”
