Mobile MIM Receives Second FDA 510(k) Clearance, Adds X-Ray and Radiation Oncology

MIM Software‘s new Mobile MIM 3.0 software for diagnostic X-ray and ultrasound image review has been cleared by the FDA.  It displays volume histograms, isodose curves, contours, and images for treatment plans, and allows clinicians to consult with each other wherever they are.  The convenience of displaying radiological images to patients right at the bedside without having to bring in printouts is another welcome benefit.

The company also announced it is working with Accuray to soon launch a new app, called PlanTouch, that will allow a review of a CyberKnife interventional radiation oncology treatment plan right on an iOS device.

Mobile MIM is a thick client that brings the data to the device for fast and consistent manipulation, independent of network performance. Device-level hardware encryption provides security for HIPAA compliance, and users have the additional security option of removing data from the device after viewing. For rapid access, images are displayed as they download. Data can be downloaded to Mobile MIM using MIMcloud™ or an on-site MIM workstation.Mobile-MIM-X-ray

With the release of Mobile MIM 3.0, MIM Software also plans to launch a co-branded version of the app with its partner Accuray Incorporated. The co-branded Accuray version of the app, PlanTouch™, will have an interface that allows physicians to review and approve a CyberKnife® treatment plan via a direct link.

Cleveland, Ohio – December 15, 2011 – MIM Software Inc., a leading global provider of medical imaging software, announced today that Mobile MIM has received its second FDA 510(k) clearance for the release of its new version, Mobile MIM 3.0. Mobile MIM is now cleared for diagnostic X-ray and ultrasound viewing, as well as radiation treatment plan review and approval. Mobile MIM 3.0 is available on the Apple® App StoreSM today. The app includes sample images to demonstrate its expanded functionality.

Radiation oncologists can use Mobile MIM to review dose volume histograms, isodose curves, contours, and images for treatment plans – actions commonly restricted to a limited number of dedicated workstations. “Mobile MIM provides a timesaving alternative to treatment plan review and approval by providing the necessary data and visualization for decision making while simultaneously reducing contention on costly treatment planning systems,“ said Jerimy Brockway, Software Director at MIM™.

“Making Mobile MIM intuitive for radiation oncology was a primary goal, and we focused on creating the most natural and streamlined experience possible. The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive

“Not to be overlooked is the advent of viewing an X-ray on a hand-held device in a diagnostic capacity. This is a milestone for mobile health,” added Brockway. Mobile MIM is capable of displaying very large images, more than 25 megapixels, with lossless data compression.
