Philadelphia-based Hx Technologies (HxTI) has released a free, open-source software platform, called Xebra, for medical imaging distribution and visualization.

According to HxTI, Xebra provides healthcare organizations and other vendors with all necessary components to securely transmit and review medical images over a network.

The project, the company says, has opened up access to Web distribution/review features previously found only in proprietary, closed software. Xebra is able to run on any operating system, supporting the IHE standards required for sharing health information regionally and nationally in RHIOs, the NHIN, as well as international initiatives, the company says.

Xebra is intended to work alongside any PACS and to provide advanced imaging capabilities to a wide range of healthcare IT applications, the company says. Written in Java, the software is designed with an ultra-thin client that can be launched over the Web without any installation required by the end user.
