NEW CLOUD-BASED ITERATIVE IMAGE RECONSTRUCTION SERVICE FOR
LOW-DOSE CT LUNG CANCER SCREENING TO BE LAUNCHED AT
RSNA 2013 IN CHICAGO

Medic Vision and BRIT join forces to provide innovative cloud-based SafeCT service for
enhancing image quality of low-dose CT lung images

Nov. 20, 2013 - Tirat Carmel, Israel and Dallas, Texas - Medic Vision Imaging Solutions, Ltd. (www.medicvision.com) and BRIT Systems, Inc. (www.brit.com) jointly announced today that they have teamed up to offer a new cloud-based service supporting low-dose CT (LDCT) lung cancer screening. The service allows any radiology department/practice to perform LDCT lung screening and obtain diagnostic-quality images without having to purchase and implement new Iterative Reconstruction technology at their site.

The new service is based on Medic Vision's SafeCT© Iterative Image Reconstruction system and BRIT's Roentgen Cloud™. With this service, LDCT lung images are securely forwarded via https (No VPN required) to remote cloud-based SafeCT servers for immediate transformation into diagnostic-quality images. Processed images are immediately sent back to the customer's network via the secure link and forwarded to the customer PACS. The processed images remain accessible via Roentgen Cloud to the provider, and optionally, to the patient. The service is available at a pay-per-scan fee for CT scanners of all major vendors.

LDCT has recently garnered support from many major medical societies as the modality-of-choice for screening heavy smokers for lung cancer. Several important studies indicate that the implementation of LDCT for lung cancer screening can save as many as 20,000 lives each year.

Medic Vision's SafeCT uses proprietary, patented 3D iterative image reconstruction algorithms to enhance CT images acquired with low-dose protocols. Today the add-on SafeCT is in routine clinical use at major hospitals and imaging centers nationwide, supporting CT scanner systems from all manufacturers, including GE, Philips, Siemens, and Toshiba.

Dr. Jon Robins, MD, Chairman and CEO of Imaging Healthcare Specialists in San Diego, CA, commented: "We routinely perform low-dose CT lung cancer screening procedures at all of our 10 imaging sites in the San Diego area using SafeCT to ensure consistent high-quality diagnostic images for confident reading. We are extremely satisfied with SafeCT's performance and strongly recommend the use of this new service."

BRIT's Roentgen Cloud provides user-managed, virtual DICOM servers to individuals/organizations, enabling users to securely upload, store, share and view studies via any HTML-5 compliant browser. Studies may also be viewed on mobile devices.

"With cloud-based SafeCT, hospitals and imaging centers can take advantage of cost-effective pay-per-scan, remote?albeit, real-time" SafeCT service," stated Eyal Aharon, CEO of Medic Vision. "While LDCT lung screening is a hot application, many hospitals and private practices are hesitant, or in some cases unable, to make the capital investment required to purchase SafeCT. The new service allows any radiology practice to offer the up and coming LDCT lung screening service without having to invest in image enhancement solutions."

"For the past three years BRIT's Roentgen Cloud has been providing cloud-based image storage and sharing services to thousands of customers," added Shelly Fisher, President, BRIT Systems. "We were delighted to join forces with Medic Vision to facilitate the innovative and timely SafeCT service supporting LDCT lung cancer screening. It just seemed like a natural progression of our cloud-based platform and expertise."
