DURHAM, N.C., July 16, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Heart IT, the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero-footprint medical imaging workstation, announced today the release of Version 8 of their flagship products: WebPAX® PACS and Universal Viewer.

The WebPAX® product line offers leading edge medical image management and distribution platforms that enable the viewing of all medical images, including Radiology and Cardiology images, on the web, on a zero-footprint basis, and 100 percent diagnostic quality. The newest release of WebPAX® offers a number of key features and enhancements, which are all designed to improve the workflow of the Cardiologist and Radiologist reading medical images.

Version 8 offers an array of improvements in admin tools, viewer tools, image management, as well as patient management. One of the primary benefits of WebPAX® version 8 is that it increases the speed by which medical images can be viewed on the web independently of the available bandwidth.

Michael Parsons, Director of Software Development, said “WebPAX version 8 is our most effective and comprehensive release yet. As a web-based medical imaging viewing application, one of the greatest challenges we face, is facilitating the viewing of medical images over the bandwidth that is available to the customer, regardless of location. In Version 8, through the utilization of HTML 5 technologies and increasing the efficiency of our code, we have been able to significantly improve the speed by which the medical images can be loaded and displayed.”

Heart ITBrent Reed, CTO stated: “It’s now commonplace for physicians to make their primary reads outside of the physical walls of the hospital. Version 8 leverages brand new technology which optimizes that experience. For example, Cardiologists who read Echo’s at home will now be able to navigate all series of a study in quick succession comparable to how they view them through standalone workstations. V8 changes the way images can be accessed by physicians and truly has the potential to improve the quality of care for patients.”
