Carestream Health said Tuesday it received Food and Drug Administration clearance to market a Web-based radiology image viewer for the iPad and other portable devices, so doctors can instantly access imaging data anywhere they are.

The Vue Motion lets referring physicians and other doctors check out MRI scans or other images by logging onto a website. As it's all Web-based and doesn't require storage on the viewing device, it can work with tablets and other mobile devices, as well as laptops, desktops and workstations, Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream said. It's also compatible with other companies' PACS and can be embedded in an electronic health record.

The product, which is only cleared for non-diagnostic reads, made its U.S. debut in June at the Society for Imaging Informatics' 2011 meeting, but is already available in Europe.
