Tabatabaie stated that image sharing has gained acceptance to the point, where it is being considered as a part of the standard care, and said that the company would use a fresh financial funding to bolster its business.

In its recent statements, the company noted additions to its customers’ base, including City of hope, Children Hospital Orange County, in California, and Cedars- Sinai Medical centers in Los Angeles, adding Emory Healthcare in Atlanta, Baptist Health Jacksonville, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and Bayfront Medical Centers, in Florida.

Since form many years, medical imaging has been one of the major healthcare costs, mainly due to duplication of diagnostic imaging tests. Image sharing is anticipated to decline this cost, making it easier to do virtual consultations, and to make referrals more efficient.
