August 5, 2010. InfiMed Augments Product Line with X-ray Image Stitching: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted InfiMed, Inc. approval through the 510(k) process to include a new feature in its digital radiography (DR) product. InfiMed has added the ability to create composite images from individual x-rays – termed InfiStitch.
InfiStitch is a critical feature when doctors find it necessary to image long bones such as those in the leg or the spinal column. InfiMed’s feature permits both manual and automatic compositing of individual x-rays into a single image to assist physicians and other medical personnel with accurate diagnosis.
“InfiStitch adds to the feature set of InfiMed’s new DR platform, a major component of our i5 Series,” said Glen Thornton, InfiMed’s VP of Sales & Marketing. The i5 Series builds on InfiMed’s well regarded line of digital products which have been the workhorses of radiology departments around the world for years. “Our DR product is designed to optimize workflow, easy to learn and easy to use. Now, InfiStitch adds to its robust features,” added Thornton.
InfiMed gained FDA approval of its new DR product at the beginning of 2010.
