Heart Imaging Technologies Announces OsiriX Interface for Its Web-based, Image Management Application, WebPAX®

WebPAX® provides advanced analytical capabilities through OsiriX interface.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Heart IT, the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero-footprint medical imaging workstation, announced today the release of the OsiriX interface for the WebPAX(®) image management system.

The WebPAX(®) product line offers leading edge medical image management and distribution platforms that enable the viewing of all medical images, on the web, on a zero-footprint basis, with 100 percent diagnostic quality. The newest addition to the WebPAX(®) workstation integration line-up is the OsiriX interface. OsiriX is an open-source software package for advanced post-processing of medical images.

Hiram Perez, VP of Marketing and Sales stated: "The OsiriX interface provides users of WebPAX with advanced analytical and post-processing image capabilities."

The combination of these two products gives our customers the best of both worlds. WebPAX(®) provides the long term storage and web-based distribution mechanism for medical images. Physicians can easily access and view medical images on the web from any geographic location. Once they have navigated to an image, movie, or 3D dataset in WebPAX(®), with a single mouse click they can immediately open that dataset in OsiriX in order to complete advanced analytical work.

In essence, WebPAX provides DICOM storage, web-based distribution, and zero-footprint navigation while OsiriX provides the advanced post-processing tools. OsiriX includes a 3D viewer that offers the physician access to all modern rendering modes such as Multiplanar reconstruction (MPR), Surface Rendering, Volume Rendering and Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP).

In addition, a variety of OsiriX plugins are available that offer even more specialized image analysis capabilities. The WebPAX(®) OsiriX interface significantly improves the radiologist and cardiologist workflow and their ability to deliver quick, effective medical care to patients as well as advanced analytical techniques needed by medical researchers.

By combining WebPAX(®) and OsiriX, radiologists and cardiologists now have the freedom to access their medical images on the web and perform advanced analytical work directly on their desktop or laptop computer from any geographic location."
