Calgary Scientific Inc. and Massachusetts General Hospital’s RadIQ Showcases Innovation at RSNA 2015

CALGARY, Alberta--()--Calgary Scientific Inc., a company known for creating innovative technology for the medical industry and beyond, announced today that they will be showcasing a new radiology education tool called RadIQ at RSNA 2015. The innovative platform was developed by the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Radiology. RadIQ provides hands-on case review via mobile devices and simulates the way radiologists and cardiologists review medical images on-the-job.

RadIQ eliminates the burden of in-person training and takes the extra step of ensuring that images are of diagnostic quality, guaranteeing a real world, mobile experience. This is achieved through the use of ResolutionMD®; the leading enterprise image-viewing solution developed by Calgary Scientific Inc. ResolutionMD® is FDA class II cleared, ensuring that physicians are trained to make safe, confident treatment decisions using the best available technology. The combination of these advanced technologies simulates a reading room environment and delivers continually updated content, providing doctors with efficient ways to earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits that fit into their schedules, using the device that suits their work-style.

“We created RadIQ to integrate into the best of breed technologies for content delivery,” said Garry Choy, Co-director of RadIQ and Assistant Chief Medical Information Officer at Massachusetts General Physicians Organization. “In this case, delivery of full DICOM datasets anywhere, anytime either web-based or mobile-based was critical to innovating online CME. With the Calgary Scientific and RadIQ partnership, we are able to deliver a full PACS like environment in an educational experience on your phone or on your laptop. Together, we can help set the pace in innovating online and mobile-CME in radiology.”

“I am thrilled to be working with Massachusetts General Hospital to showcase this innovation to radiologists at RSNA 2015,” said Dave Waldrop, CRO/SVP Sales and Marketing at Calgary Scientific. “We are seeing doctors across generations that favor accessing information on-the-go from their mobile devices. It is more important than ever that we arm the next generation of caregivers with mobile tools to support their preferred work styles, supporting them to deliver the best possible care.”
