Calgary Scientific, Inc., of Alberta Canada a leading innovator in advanced visualization solutions and medical imaging web enabling platforms, has partnered with Viatronix Incorporated of Stony Brook, New York, a highly recognized company with breakthrough software technology in the field of advanced 3D clinical applications, to complete the zero footprint web enablement of Viatronix’s virtual colonoscopy (VC/CTC) application. The technology partnership involves using Calgary Scientific’s zero-footprint PureWeb™ platform, which is the state-of-the- art zero footprint web application employed within the Medical IT environment to enable the widely distributed, web-based use of advanced 3D applications, such as Viatronix’s globally installed V3D® product.
PureWeb will enable Viatronix’s end-users to utilize the industry leading V3D-Colon® application with full functionality and high performance from anywhere - without needing to download, configure or support any viewer or portal software for any client, while not creating any redundant copies of images – all of which are major IT bottle necks for the industry today.
PureWeb technology is currently the only product on the market offering a true, zero-footprint client with the characteristics described herein, providing Viatronix a significant competitive advantage. These attributes, combined with Calgary Scientific’s proven track record of rapidly web enabling various OEM’s PACS, EMR, and Clinical Applications, are what led to the signing of the strategic agreement between the two companies.
“After extensive efforts and research on web enablement, we were very pleased to jointly work with Calgary Scientific and their PureWeb platform”, says Zaffar Hayat, Viatronix President and CEO. “It became clear to us that PureWeb represents what we were looking for and is the stateof-the-art in web enablement for advanced 3D applications. This technology perfectly compliments our own best-of-breed products.”
“Viatronix is without a doubt the world’s leading virtual colonoscopy provider, and we are extremely excited to work with them to extend the reach of their robust, best-of-breed 3D virtual colonoscopy application,” says Pierre Lemire, President and CTO at Calgary Scientific. “Remote and mobile accessibility is an advanced technical capability radiologists and referring physicians from around the globe are now demanding of their product suppliers, so that they in turn can provide better patient care, improve the quality of their own lives, as well as meaningfully improve the efficiency with which they can perform their chosen professions. We view our partnership with Viatronix as highly strategic and we look forward to a productive future with their organization.”
