Ashva nets FDA approval for Edge PACS
The FDA has awarded Ashva Technologies 510(k) clearance for its Edge PACS, including its server, web viewer and DICOM workstation, for marketing in the United States.

The Chennai, India-based Ashva said that its Edge PACS received clearance for diagnostic viewing and manipulating medical images. It can be used for receiving and storing digital images and data from various modalities (including CT, MR, US, RF units, CR, DR) and other sources (like secondary capture devices, scanners, imaging gateways or other imaging sources), according to the company. The images and data thus received can be displayed, processed, stored and communicated across computer networks using the software.

The Edge PACS can be integrated with an institution’s existing HIS or RIS, providing access to reports for fully integrated EHRs, Ashva said.
