Radical Imaging, Medicai Partner on Imaging Data Management

The collaboration will allow healthcare providers to seamlessly and securely manage and exchange imaging data.


Radical Imaging, a pioneer in medical imaging informatics, interoperability and integrations, recently announced a partnership with Medicai, a provider of decentralized cloud-based infrastructure (PACS, VNA and exchange) that enables healthcare providers to seamlessly and securely manage and exchange imaging data.

The partnership will enable Medicai's customers to opt-in to use FlexView as their viewer in Medicai's platform and FlexView's customers to have Medicai's ready-made solution when it is required that they use a central repository for medical images and associated patient data from multiple healthcare systems in conjunction with the viewer.

FlexView is a SaaS cloud medical imaging viewer created by Radical Imaging that is based on the Open Health Imaging Foundation (OHIF) framework. It is a commercial-grade, production-ready solution that can easily be incorporated into any medical imaging system, providing the viewing and analysis capabilities for any type of medical image or workflow.

FlexView adds to OHIF's model by introducing the ability to deploy plugins at runtime. This is crucial to enable the addition of new features dynamically, such as AI-based tools, without causing disruptions or system downtime. Users will be able to discover, opt into and use these value-added services as they become available in the FlexView Extension Marketplace.

FlexView will be available to the general public in September 2023.

Medicai's cloud-based platform provides physicians with instant access to patient medical images, such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, and other relevant medical files, regardless of location. It enables them to view and analyze medical images, make diagnoses, and collaborate with other medical professionals across different healthcare settings in real-time to make more informed decisions about patient treatment. The platform is designed to be user-friendly and scalable, allowing healthcare providers to easily access and share imaging data across a network of providers.

Medicai's interoperable medical imaging architecture enables seamless communication and data exchange between different medical imaging systems and healthcare applications, regardless of the vendor or technology used. The platform is built on industry-standard protocols, including DICOM and HL7, ensuring that it can integrate with other healthcare systems, such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS).

A vendor-neutral archive (VNA) is included, which acts as a central repository for medical images and associated patient data, and supports various DICOM standards and image formats. A set of interfaces and APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that enable different systems and applications to communicate with each other is also included, promoting interoperability and enabling more efficient workflows.
