AIMTools Mobile Toolkit Expands Medical Image Viewing

6-bit Lossless JPEG and JPEG 2000 on iOS and Android devices

Accusoft Pegasus, the leading provider of imaging software development kits (SDKs), announced recently the release of new features for AIMTools, a new mobile imaging SDK, including support for viewing up to 16-bit Lossless JPEG and JPEG 2000 images on iOS and Android devices, as well as support for viewing TIFF images on iOS.

AIMTools is the first toolkit to support Lossless JPEG and JPEG 2000 on iOS and Android. Using this mobile SDK, medical professionals now have the ability to retrieve and download vital medical images on an iPad, iPhone or Android device. Applications developed using AIMTools will give physicians the opportunity to consult at their patients’ bedside on their mobile device.

Additionally, second opinion consults between medical professionals, via a mobile device, allow them to quickly share detailed images. AIMTools can also provide increased accessibility for doctors and patients accessing medical records from mobile applications with images attached to electronic medical records.

“We released our first version of AIMTools in June and immediately started to get feedback from our customers on additional features they needed for their medical viewing apps,” said Steve Wilson, Product Group Director at Accusoft Pegasus. “Our team was able to quickly respond and add the new file format support and image functionality our customers needed.”

In February 2011, the FDA approved the first diagnostic radiology application for viewing images and making medical diagnoses on mobile devices.

Using AIMTools, developers can create mobile applications to view up to 16-bit grayscale images. Applications can also gain more control over output of image data than is offered by the mobile operating system’s JPEG library. Very large images can now be decompressed to the optimal display size for the mobile devices they are targeting. all high-resolution image data is preserved on the device and subsequent decompress operations can request new sizes using all of the raw image data for the image.

Applications using AIMTools can also view document images that are scanned and stored in lossless formats to preserve image detail, such as TIFF and JPEG 2000.
