A major medical hardware and software provider has received US FDA 510(k) clearance for additional functionalities on its enterprise imaging zero-footprint viewer.

The viewer merges patient images and data from different departments and various sources in a hospital. Clinicians inside and outside a hospital, who satisfy the security policies and have the appropriate access rights, can now use the viewer to access the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) and non-DICOM imaging data in a single consolidated view.

The US FDA approval includes Xtend 3D processing and advanced clinical applications functionality on the Agfa Healthcare (Mortsel, Belgium) XERO Viewer. The functionality is now cleared for diagnostic viewing on desktop devices.

The approved advanced clinical applications on the browser-agnostic XERO Viewer now include Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP), MultiPlanar Reconstruction (MPR), mammography, orthopedics, nuclear medicine, and 3D visualization. In addition, iPad mobile diagnostic review and analysis now includes reports and ECG images.

The viewer can display images from either the Agfa HealthCare Enterprise Imaging IT platform, third-party Vendor Neutral Archives (VNA), or Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) in a single screen.

President of Imaging IT Solutions, Agfa HealthCare, James Jay, said, "We focus our continuous improvement efforts on meeting specific and real needs of healthcare providers; the features included in XERO Xtend fit that criterion. XERO, and the XERO Xtend feature set, help the healthcare enterprises to provide anywhere, anytime image access complete with powerful, useful image processing functions. The FDA 510(k) clearance for XERO Xtend supports our continued march forward."
