-Topcon Medical Systems Inc. introduced two new modules to its image management and sharing software suite (EyeRoute) at the recent American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting.

One new module (EyeRoute Mobile iPhone) includes a mobile phone application designed to enable physicians-via a secure, protected interface from any 3‐G compatible proprietary phone (iPhone, Apple)-to access images and reports stored in the system. The application’s touch screen is designed to offer multiple review formats of patient data and images, to which notes or audible dictation can be securely added.

Another new module (EyeRoute O.R.) is designed to enable direct digital video recording of surgeries into the system as well as live streaming via the system. It eliminates the need for DVD burning by providing instant access to videos virtually anywhere and anytime for quality assurance and education, according to the company.
