FDA clears Virtual Radiologic PACS software
Virtual Radiologic, a provider of teleradiology services, has received FDA clearance for its vRad PACS. The company will roll out the software to its affiliated radiologists over the next several months, gradually replacing the commercial software it currently licenses.

"vRad PACS completes our strategy of developing our own software to precisely fit the business processes and needs of Virtual Radiologic," said Rick Jennings, chief technology officer.

The Minneapolis-based Virtual Radiologic said it has more than 135 contracted affiliated U.S. radiologists, who will interpret diagnostic images through its teleradiology technology and workflow platform.
