Aycan Medical Systems, a maker of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and other storage and distribution technology for medical imaging, has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Aycan Mobile teleradiology app for the iPad.

The FDA has approved Aycan Mobile diagnosis from computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) modalities only. The clearance does not cover mammography.

According to Aycan, which has dual headquarters in Rochester, N.Y., and Wuerzburg, Germany, the iPad app should only be used for primary diagnosis when a full workstation is not available. Instead, Aycan Mobile is meant to supplement the company’s OsiriX Pro imaging workstation.
