LED Medical Diagnostics Inc, Vancouver, BC, announced the upcoming release of its new 3D imaging module for the XVWeb Cloud platform from its subsidiary Apteryx Inc, which is based in Akron, Ohio. According to the company, XVWeb 3D allows for cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and stereolithography (STL) datasets to be accessed, viewed, and shared securely via any compatible web browser in real time.

Apteryx’s XVWeb is a dental imaging software platform that uses Microsoft Azure cloud technology. XVWeb allows practices to access their clinical image data 24 hours per day, 7 days per week from compatible web-connected devices with the added security of off-site storage and back-up. According to the company, the addition of XVWeb 3D will allow the same level of accessibility and security for any STL or CBCT dataset. All 3D image actions can be performed via the web with access to a full suite of image enhancement and annotation tools.

“Up to this point in time, the storage and manipulation of STL and CBCT data has presented a challenge for cloud computing due to the size and complexity of the files being managed. The Apteryx team has developed a cloud computing solution that is able to give clinicians the 3D planning and visualization tools they need while maintaining exceptional image quality in a cloud environment,” said Kevin Crucs, vice president of research and development for Apteryx Inc.

David Gone, CEO of LED Medical, added, “The ability to quickly access 3D data from any location at any time without download provides tremendous flexibility and efficiency for both single provider practices and large enterprise organizations with multiple locations. We are excited to provide this new service to our existing and prospective XVWeb customers.”
