November 3, 2016 — SALT LAKE CITY — Utah-based healthcare technology company Novarad has recently received FDA 510(K) clearance of its MobileRad native iPad application, which is now available on the App Store.
The Novarad MobileRad application integrates with a facility’s NovaPACS® system to display data on a third party mobile device for diagnostic use, specifically the native app (MobileRad) on iPad. NovaPACS is approved for the viewing, archiving, analysis, annotation, registration, distribution, editing, fusion, and processing of digital medical images and data acquired from diagnostic imaging devices and all DICOM devices, etc.
“Enabling providers to access this kind of information on their iPad means there are fewer restrictions on providing an accurate diagnosis in a timely manner,” said Steve Fowler, Director of Product Management.
The app allows healthcare providers to view images and reports anytime, anywhere.
Clinical testing was conducted independently by a panel of board-certified radiologists in the United States. Each radiologist agreed that images on the native app were comparable to those on the predicate NovaPACS workstation across seven modalities and of adequate quality for clinical and diagnostic use.
Each radiologist agreed they made the same diagnosis on their iPad as they would have made on the workstation.
Mobile devices are not intended to replace a full workstation and should be used only when there is no access to a workstation and with respect to proper lighting conditions. They are also not to be used for mammography.
Those interested in learning more about the MobileRad solution may visit the company at RSNA, booth 7329, visit www.novarad.net or follow the company on Twitter, @NovaradCorp. RSNA will take place Nov. 27 through Dec. 2. The app is available for download on the App Store.
