DURHAM, N.C., July 17, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Heart IT, the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero footprint medical imaging workstation announced today that the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT), a branch of the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), has elected to acquire WebPAX® in order to receive and share medical images across multiple hospitals.

SIAT is engaged in comprehensive and multi-disciplinary medical research. They required an effective system to allow them to readily receive and manage medical images from a number of hospitals (across a large geographical area) participating in medical research activities. SIAT also needed a way to make those images available to multiple scientists in different locations without having to purchase several, costly licenses for specialized viewing stations.

WebPAX® provided the perfect solution and helped SIAT create a Medical Image Network. WebPAX® offers the capability to easily upload medical images via the web from any location in the globe. Once the images have been acquired and stored in the database, SIAT scientists can view them from any computer with a browser without any specialized client software. The unlimited license (standard with all WebPAX® systems) meant significant savings for SIAT since they could use their existing computer infrastructure without additional license purchases. WebPAX® delivered the necessary technology to provide SIAT with a Medical Image Network easily and affordably.
