FiatLux Imaging Extends Availability of Free Medical Software

Visualize FREE Provides a Valuable Resource for Analyzing Medical Imaging Studies

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FiatLux Imaging, Inc., a company dedicated to the development of powerful and useful new software to make the practice of medicine more effective, less expensive and more timely, announced today that, due to user demand and rapidly expanding use, it is extending the free availability of its Visualize FREE application for reading and analyzing medical imaging studies. Visualize FREE was first launched in November, 2009 and can be downloaded free at www.fiatluximaing.com.

The Visualize FREE application is:

  • A fully-featured 2D/3D visualization application providing an easy-to-use means of reformatting and viewing DICOM-compatible imaging data.
  • Absolutely FREE to the clinical community. The program is NOT a trial version or demo and your ability to use it will not expire.
  • Cleared by the U.S. FDA for clinical use.
  • Able to run on any modern Windows-based computer (PC/laptop/tablet).
  • Useful for medical specialists in treatment planning and patient education.
  • Useful for patients in viewing imaging studies at home.
  • Helpful to medical researchers in reviewing imaging studies provided as part of ongoing research projects.
  • Helpful for medical students and residents studying anatomy, pathology, and reviewing cases.

Millions of imaging studies are created each year, yet few medical images are ever viewed outside the imaging center or radiology office. With Visualize FREE, physicians and patients can easily access data from CT, MRI and other medical imaging procedures. FiatLux Imaging has released Visualize FREE to begin building a user community and gain valuable user input that will help in the final design and launch of its larger online development project.

“Visualize FREE is rapidly becoming an industry standard for advanced visualization,” said Max Lyon, Chief Executive Officer of FiatLux Imaging. “We believe that providing convenient, standardized access to medical imaging analysis tools will allow referring physicians to make better treatment decisions and patients to gain more insight into their medical conditions and treatment options. Visualize FREE is the company’s first in a planned series of offerings to increase the use, and usefulness, of medical images by providing faster, less expensive and more effective transport, review, analysis, storage and sharing of these images.”

About FiatLux Imaging

FiatLux Imaging sees a major evolution taking place in the field of medicine. Advances in internet and software technologies are allowing the development and deployment of software and services that are creating dramatic and beneficial changes in the healthcare field, in a similar way that computer-aided design (CAD) software and related services revolutionized the fields of design, engineering and architecture.

The company is initially using these technologies for the development and launch of comprehensive software-based services for the transport, review, analysis, storage and sharing of medical imaging studies, creating the first integrated system for access to, and use of, these studies by the worldwide healthcare community including the 800,000 physicians and 3 million healthcare workers in the U.S. These new services that will enable broad access to, and better use of, medical imaging studies by the specialty physicians, general practitioners and other healthcare professionals, who need to review, analyze and share these studies. The current lack of tools and services to effectively make use of imaging studies for treatment planning and patient education costs the healthcare system hundreds of millions of dollars in repeat imaging, inefficient or unsuccessful surgeries and patient lawsuits.

FiatLux Imaging, Inc. is a privately held company based in Redmond, Washington.
