There’s nothing wrong with using a solution that works for you. That can be a solution that costs thousands of dollars for an annual subscription or one that comes completely free. We support the medical imaging community to use whatever platform and integrations that bring the most value to their business. However, there is a concern. If you are using a viewer that does not have FDA, CE, or other certifications - you might want to think twice before making a diagnosis.
As we discussed in our previous blog post, whomever took your scan legally owns the image. Despite that, we raised several reasons that patients should be interested in controlling their own images. But where do my doctors fit into this puzzle?
Web based medical image viewers should be fast, flexible, and accessible for diagnostic use
Do you know what a "zero footprint client" is? Doesn't sound too sexy, does it? While many recognize the term, it has become vague as to exactly how it helps doctors and care providers view medical images. What if I told you that you could view diagnostic quality images in 3D, use analysis and reporting tools, and collaborate with other doctors all from a web browser without downloading any software or patient information? That is a "zero footprint client."
