Calgary Scientific gains FDA approval for Resolution MD image viewer

Calgary Scientific, a Canadian mobile viewing software company, has gained FDA approval for its diagnostic use of its ResolutionMD on the HTC Evo 4G smartphone on the Sprint 4G network. The proof was showing that images pushed out to the HTC Evo correlated 99% with those stored on a traditional PACS (picture archiving and communication system, the standard for medical imaging)–and with speed, compared to a typical 400MB CT scan image transmitted via WiFi that could take hours. Resolution MD has also been approved by Health Canada and some EU counterparts.  Technology for Doctors (Canada)FierceMobileHealthcare.
