CALGARY, May 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgary Scientific Inc., a company known for creating transformative technology for the medical industry and beyond, has just made it faster and easier for practitioners to diagnose patients with the launch of ResolutionMD™ 3.2. This new version minimizes time-consuming procedures by offering significantly better access to relevant images.
ResolutionMD enables doctors to securely view patient images from a wide array of computers and mobile devices, collaborate with other practitioners and produce high quality medical diagnosis from any location in real-time. The FDA cleared, Health Canada licensed and CE marked solution never transfers highly sensitive data to the device, as is the case with other mobile medical diagnosis software. ResolutionMD is published in twelve languages and is currently installed in leading healthcare institutions around the world via a network of more than thirty-five world class healthcare partners.
"Calgary Scientific's ResolutionMD software is a powerful complement to Dell's Unified Clinical Archive solution, particularly as more mobile devices are introduced in the healthcare setting," said August Calhoun, Ph.D., Vice President and General Manager of Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences. "This new release will give physicians even faster access to securely view patient images, thus saving time and improving patient care."
ResolutionMD's new functionality streamlines workflows to bring relevant information to the fingertips of the practitioner. The new version offers physicians:
- An easy way to recall a patient's entire image history quickly
- Flexibility to view multiple images side by side for comparison
- Faster navigation between studies
A globally recognized healthcare institution recently conducted a study comparing three image-viewing products to evaluate diagnostic quality, access time to images, technical reliability, and clinician satisfaction. The time for radiologists to access images using ResolutionMD was approximately 10 minutes faster per image than the traditional PACS system in use at the institution and 15 minutes faster than the second viewing system in daily use. Surgeons, oncologists, neurologists and other specialists participating in the study also experienced significantly improved image access times and workflow enhancement. In large institutions viewing one million or more images per year, the cost savings related to image access are tremendous.
"We are proud to deliver this new version of ResolutionMD with time saving workflow and data access improvements that contribute to faster diagnosis," said Pierre Lemire, President and CTO of Calgary Scientific. "Input from our valued partners and customers shaped the new release which puts betters tools in the hands of practitioners and provides significant cost savings to their institutions."
