InstaCath is a customizable Cardiology Imaging Solution designed for hospital networks that archives, manages, transmits and displays cardiology images. Cardiology images are heavier than radiology images and require higher bandwidths. Meddiff Technologies has successfully used streaming technology to transmit cardiology images in real time across cardiology departments in hospitals over local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN) and the internet. Physicians and specialists view the medical images from any location and send back their diagnosis within minutes. It is designed to handle Cath-Lab, 2DEcho, 64slice CT cardiac studies & Cardiac Nuclear Medicine.
InstaCath increases the productivity of hospitals, optimizes skill and time of cardiologists and physicians, and improves patient satisfaction.
Save time with InstaCath
InstaCath saves time for patients, doctors and cardiologists.
No waiting time for patients

No waiting time for specialists
InstaCath ensures fast rendering of images and specialists need not wait long for the complete image to download. Streaming technology is progressive and prioritizes the streaming of clinically important data.
User friendly interface
InstaCath's interface is intuitively obvious i.e. easy to use and understand without extensive training.
Save money with InstaCath

How does InstaCath work?
