FDA Approves Diagnostic Radiology Apps for iPhone, iPad

Photo Courtesy - Apple, Inc.(WASHINGTON) -- The U.S. Friday approved a new mobile application that will allow doctors to view radiology images on their iPhone and iPad.  The application is the first to be cleared for making medical diagnoses based on computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine technology.

Though it may benefit physicians not to be forced to wait for film or be confined to a workstation, the FDA notes that the application is not meant to replace full workstations and is only for use when a workstation is not accessible.
