ATLANTA – (March 24, 2010), Accelarad’s new online medical image cloud computing service, today announced its launch with Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), bringing new medical image exchange technology to VUMC, a leader in the Southeast’s medical education, research and patient care.

VUMC’s orthopedic surgeons can exchange medical images in real-time via secure web access or via smartphones and other mobile devices for instant delivery and assessment of patient medical images, streamlining the entire medical image exchange process.
