Vital Images, Inc. (VTAL), Receives 510(k) Clearance For Its New Universal Viewer, VitreaView


8/15/2011 7:48:34 AM

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vital Images, Inc., a Toshiba Medical Systems Group Company and leading provider of advanced visualization and analysis solutions for healthcare providers, received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for VitreaView, a new universal viewer that provides uniform access to all images within patient imaging. VitreaView is designed for access through the Electronic Medical Record (EMR), Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Health Information Exchange (HIE).

VitreaView utilizes next generation technology for image distribution through a zero-footprint and zero download viewing solution. Users accessing VitreaView can use Web-enabled devices, including Windows® or Mac-based systems, for review of DICOM and non-DICOM medical images. This gives clinicians unrestricted access through the EMR, EHR or HIE to all patient imaging.

"CRL* provides radiology services to a large variety of facilities in a multi-state region. Our need to deliver patient imaging in context with reports via the Web is critical," said Norman Arslanlar, doctor of osteopathic medicine at CRL Imaging. "During our validation of VitreaView, we found that it gives us these abilities and further enables CRL to provide our referring physicians with enhanced communication so they may in turn treat their patients more efficiently."

"We are pleased to receive FDA clearance for VitreaView," said Erkan Akyuz, executive vice president, product strategy and development at Vital Images. "Clinicians using VitreaView can now be confident that they can view all image types within a patient's medical record on a platform cleared by the FDA."

Additionally, IT administrators can leverage virtualization for deployment along with VitreaView's ability to manage access to multiple databases, thus providing a universal imaging layer at an enterprise level. VitreaView is also designed to eliminate the need to integrate disparate image viewing portals and substitute a single, standardized imaging layer for referring clinicians. This allows administrators to move away from managing disparate departmental imaging solutions and provide access through a consolidated universal viewer.

*CRL Imaging evaluated VitreaView as part of external validation during development.
