DALLAS, Texas, Aug. 7, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Heart IT, the global leader that pioneered the first FDA approved zero footprint medical imaging workstation, and iHeart Centers, the new standard for outpatient cardiovascular diagnosis and treatment, announced today that iHeart has acquired WebPAX® to facilitate the management of medical images.
iHeart chose WebPAX® as the exclusive PACS for every iHeart Imaging Center and iHeart Care Center.
