NEW YORK, July 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ambra Health, makers of the leading cloud-based, medical image management suite and Invenio Imaging, a leader in rapid intraoperative tissue imaging with Stimulated Raman Histology (SRH), today announced a partnership that integrates Ambra's image management technology with Invenio's NIO Laser Imaging System. The collaboration enables pathologists to instantly view SRH images exported from Invenio's device.
The NIO, which provides microscopic images of fresh tissue specimens in minutes, integrates with Ambra's Cloud PACS and viewing capabilities. Pathologists can now review images from anywhere with minimal delay, enabling greater collaboration between surgeons and pathologists.
The pandemic has underscored the need for healthcare facilities to have access to critical patient information when and where they need it most. The NIO and Ambra Health collaboration creates the opportunity for hospitals to generate and read high resolution microscopic images of tissue with an eye toward social distancing by eliminating the face-to-face interactions that occur in the conventional histologic workflow. The Ambra Cloud PACS consolidates multiple imaging systems with one flexible, customizable, and low maintenance cloud storage platform that lets medical imaging be accessed securely anytime, anywhere.
Sandra Camelo-Piragua, MD, neuropathologist from the University of Michigan, stated: "I have reviewed SRH images in different platforms and I find Ambra the best system in terms of easy navigation, image quality and uploading time. The images are crisp, with no image degradation. The system is responsive to rapid commands. I see Ambra as a great tool for image data storage and review with easy internet based access with great quality and customer support."
"The integration of the NIO with Ambra supports our mission to streamline the collaboration between surgery and pathology. Ultimately, we hope this partnership can lead to better, more efficient patient care," said Chris Freudiger, PhD, CTO and Co-Founder of Invenio Imaging.
"Our partnership with Invenio marks the latest instance of technologists working together to streamline the image management process so that critical medical imaging data is available when and where providers need it," said Andrew Duckworth, VP of Business Development for Ambra Health.
