Vancouver, BC – June 19, 2019 – LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. (“LED Medical” or “the Company”), has proudly announced that its XVWeb Cloud Imaging Software, developed by its subsidiary Apteryx, Inc. (“Apteryx”), has received the 2019 Cellerant “Best of Class” Technology Award for the Imaging Software category.
“We are entering a new era in dentistry — one that will change how we diagnose, treat, and manage our patients and practices,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, CEO of Cellerant and founder of the Best of Class Technology Awards. “This was a breakthrough year in product and services technologies. The panel spent hundreds of hours in close discussion reviewing and analyzing the corporate landscape. Pay close attention to our winners as they are truly leading the way to provide you what is best in today’s contemporary practice.”
XVWeb is dentistry’s leading picture archiving and communication system (PACS), delivering state-of-the-art clinical image capture, visualization, analysis and backup as a cost-effective SaaS (software-as-a-service) subscription. XVWeb subscribers can access the totality of their clinical image data 24 hours per day, 7 days per week from compatible web-connected devices. The XVWeb 3D module adds the same level of accessibility and security for patient CBCT image data. All CBCT visualizations, including 3D image rendering, are processed and performed via the cloud and are complemented by a full range of image analysis and annotation tools. In addition, XVWeb 3D provides an efficient process for HIPAA-compliant sharing of patient images between healthcare providers, greatly improving the efficiency of case collaboration in comparison to premise-based software systems.
“We are excited about the impact that the utilization of cloud computing will have on dental imaging and the advances it will bring to comprehensive image acquisition, image management and treatment planning,” stated Kevin Crucs, vice president of research and development for Apteryx, Inc. “Our team has developed a unique SaaS solution that gives clinicians the treatment planning and visualization tools they need in a cloud environment, all while maintaining the exceptional image quality and handling that the industry has come to expect from Apteryx products.”
“Our goal is to help the doctor make the best decisions for their office which, in the end, benefits the patients that we all serve,” said John Flucke, DDS, Best of Class panel member. “I’m honored to be able to help my peers with the decision-making process and helping them wade through the plethora of high tech products that can change offices and lives for the better.”
The 2019 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award is selected by a panel of the most prominent technology leaders in dentistry: Paul Feuerstein, DMD, technology editor for Dentistry Today; John Flucke, DDS, technology editor for Dental Products Report; Marty Jablow, DMD, known as America’s technology coach; Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, DMD, editor-in-chief of Inside Dental Hygiene; Chris Salierno, DDS, editor-in-chief of Dental Economics and Lou Shuman, DMD, CAGS, founder and creator of the Best of Class Technology Award.
Dr. David Gane, CEO of LED Medical Diagnostics concluded: “We are very proud to have XVWeb named “Best of Class” by such a distinguished panel of dental industry thought leaders. Our team is focused on continuing to enhance XVWeb with new advancements and cutting edge clinical capabilities so that this award is the first of many more to come.”
