DICOM Grid was selected from a pool of hundreds of venture-backed companies by the editors of Dow Jones VentureWire and a board of leading venture capitalists.

"Venture capitalists are always searching for start-ups that are developing truly original technology with the potential to transform the marketplace," said Scott Austin, editor of Dow Jones VentureWire. "The FASTech 50 cuts through the clutter of me-too start-ups to highlight companies developing the most innovative and investment-worthy technologies."

The VentureWire FASTech 50 is an annual list of the most investment-worthy technology start-ups as selected by a board of leading venture capitalists and the editors of Dow Jones VentureWire. This year's theme was innovation. To be eligible for the list, a company must be based in the United States, venture-backed and have launched a product within the last three years that breaks from conventional methods, introduces a novel technology or markedly advances an existing product or service.

"We are pleased to be acknowledged for our innovative technology that makes it safe, easy and affordable for providers to securely exchange medical imaging information," said Todd McNitt, Senior Vice President of DICOM Grid. "Providers are enabled through our technology to better address evolving market trends, such as accountable care organizations (ACO) and health information exchanges (HIEs) that require efficient access to patient information stored in disparate environments."
