BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aware, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE), a global provider of biometrics and medical imaging software, today announced the introduction of two new server-based software products: AccuRad™ REM Server and WebView Module for AccuRad ImageShare Server. The products leverage advanced features of Aware's mature AccuRad Server infrastructure to address two different applications: radiation exposure monitoring and viewing of radiology and pathology images. Aware will demonstrate the new products in booth A5452 at RSNA 2011, taking place in Chicago from November 27 to December 2, 2011.

AccuRad REM Server is designed to enable healthcare providers to collect radiation exposure data based on the IHE's Radiation Exposure Monitoring (REM) Integration Profile, generate customized dosage estimation reports for comparison to other results, and then upload the data to the American College of Radiology (ACR) Dose Index Registry (DIR). The reports can be used to help identify opportunities for lowering unnecessary radiation exposure.

The new WebView Module enables Aware's AccuRad ImageShare Server with versatile, high-performance viewing of high-resolution radiology and pathology images universally in a "zero-footprint" client. The zero-footprint design means that no application, DLL, or applet must be installed or maintained on the client; only a browser is required for viewing images on desktop computers, workstations, iPads and other tablets, and smart phones.

"These new products are designed to enable integrators and solution providers to leverage our mature AccuRad Server platform to respond rapidly to two emerging needs," commented Joe Kushi, Director of Sales. "The recognition of radiation exposure monitoring as a useful tool in the reduction of unnecessary dosage is evident from recent legislative and standardization activities, while the advancement of browser technology and proliferation of modern computing devices, such as iPads, is quickly creating demand to use them for radiology and pathology image viewing."
