FDA OKs Carestream Health device

Rochester Business Journal
February 18, 2014

The Food and Drug Administration has given Carestream Health Inc. the go-ahead to sell a device that lets doctors read medical images on Apple Inc. and Samsung Group mobile phones and tablets, Carestream officials said Tuesday.

FDA clearance of the Vue Motion viewer for U.S distribution makes Carestream the first major medical imaging and health care information technology firm to win FDA approval for image viewers compatible with multiple devices and more than one operating system, Carestream said.

The Carestream viewer gives doctors the ability to read X-rays on iPhone 4 smart phones and iPad 2, Galaxy Note and Galaxy S III devices.
