Ridgefield, Conn.-based CoActiv Medical announced its new EXAM-PACS touch screen image viewing for Apple iPad large-screen digital viewing and communications device. Based on the existing EXAM-PACS iPhone image viewing system, the company says the iPad system will support bi-directional data communication between a PACS and any iPad using the new device’s built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. In addition, it says this version of EXAM-PACS for iPad will also be fully compatible with the Apple iPad 3G model scheduled for release in April. The updated 3G model will allow connectivity for anywhere, anytime image viewing.

CoActiv EXAM-PACS iPad support enables secure DICOM Query/Retrieve functionality and also allows files to be pushed directly to the device over Wi-Fi and 3G connections. Once images arrive on the mobile device, they may be viewed using scroll, pan, zoom and window & level and measurement functions with the touch screen. All manipulated and annotated images may be instantly saved locally on the device as JPG files and e-mailed or sent via messaging, CoActiv touts.
