[prMac.com] Hallandale Beach, Florida - Motion Reboot today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of DICOM Converter for iOS, an app that converts DICOMs (such as MRIs and CT scans) to images you can view on your mobile device. Physicians, technicians, or patients upload their DICOM scans to Google Drive, then download images to their phone.
DICOM images are the standard method for handling, storing, printing, and transmitting information in the medical field. However, iOS mobile devices do not support viewing these types of images out of the box. For this reason, often times these images are viewed on a personal computer, with the assistance of special software. Dr Sharp's goal in this project was to "make medical imaging accessible to the mobile community."
With medical images on mobile devices, physicians may be able to more easily collaborate and share cases for internal consulting. In addition, with Google Drive's ability to share folders, entire patient/study/series have the potential of being shared globally and converted to iOS with DICOM Converter.
"DICOM Converter makes it easier for health care providers and patients to access their medical images. It is hoped that this tool will help foster constructive communication for patients and doctors alike. In addition, DICOM Converter aims to bring physicians closer to telemedicine and perhaps even working from home." stated Ian Sharp PhD of Motion Reboot.
