FDA Approves First Mobile Application for Diagnostic Radiology
By: Elizabeth Sullivan
Earlier this year, the FDA cleared the first mobile device application allowing physicians to view diagnostic radiology images on iPhones and iPads. The mobile application, Mobile MIM, allows a physician to view CT scans, MRI scans, and nuclear medicine technology, such as PET scans, through his or her mobile device. While the FDA has approved the mobile application, it is not intended to replace a full workstation and is indicated only for use where the physician does not have access to a workstation.
