BAY HARBOR, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 10, 2013) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- The President and CEO of SmartMetric, Inc., Ms. Chaya Hendrick, said that SmartMetric's MedicalKeyring™, that will be released for sale in August next month, has incorporated inside the device the hospital and medical imaging standard called DICOM.
DICOM stands for The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard and was created by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) to aid the distribution and viewing of medical images, such as CT scans, MRIs, and ultrasound.
A single DICOM file contains both a header (which stores information about the patient's name, the type of scan, image dimensions, etc), as well as all of the image data (which can contain information in three dimensions).
Instead of a person who has a medical condition having to physically carry around hard to carry X-rays etc., all of the person's imaging files can now be simply brought to the doctor or specialist appointment on a small device carried on the person's keyring. Called the MedicalKeyring™, manufactured by SmartMetric, a person's complete medical imaging history along with their medical records file can be stored inside the MedicalKeyring™. The MedicalKeyring™ not only is capable of storing hospital standard images, but access to the records on the MedicalKeyring™ are protected by the person's fingerprint. Using state of the art biometric technology developed by SmartMetric, Inc. the MedicalKeyring™ provides the ultimate in medical records portability while at the same time protecting the person's health records with advanced biometric security.
