Merge releases Merge Mobile for the iPhone
Merge Healthcare, a medical imaging solutions provider, has launched mobile technology that enables patients and healthcare professionals to view digital medical images, such as CT, MRI, x-ray and other images on an Apple iPhone or iPod touch. 

Applications built on Merge Mobile technology will enable radiologists to view emergency cases from their iPhone or iPod touch, consult with colleagues and, when necessary, forward findings directly and securely to a patient’s referring physician, according to the Milwaukee-based Merge.

The company said that Merge Mobile incorporates remote rendering techniques, including multi-planar reconstruction, that eliminate downloading of large data quantities to the mobile device and enable near-immediate access to images.
