BRIT Systems’ Roentgen Cloud image sharing and viewing solution was recently used for an oncology imaging educational workshop in Bangalore, India, the company has announced. Sponsored by the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Health Care Global Enterprises, the 3-day workshop trained attendees on how to read MRI oncology studies.
The Roentgen Cloud provides a DICOM-compliant, browser-based platform for viewing and sharing medical images from mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones. Using BRIT’s Webworks zero footprint viewer, 30 participants viewed nearly 100 MRI oncology cases, each consisting of 400-600 images, uploaded to the Roentgen Cloud servers in the United States. The exercise allowed attendees to interact with the system and read the studies as they would in a clinical environment. According to BRIT, molecular imaging is a rapidly growing field in India.
“BRIT Systems is proud to help support the educational efforts of leading healthcare institutions such as MD Anderson Cancer Center and HCG,” said Shelly Fisher, president of BRIT Systems. “For over 20 years, our company has helped hospitals and physicians view and share medical images in clinical practice. It is very rewarding for our solutions to now help educate young doctors around the world.”
