HealthVault Adds Medical Imaging

A new feature of Microsoft HealthVault's personal health records platform with supporting tools enables users to upload their diagnostic medical images from a CD or DVD to their PHR, and burn discs to share the images with providers.

The medical image feature is available from the Microsoft HealthVault Connection Center that includes additional tools to enable the collection and transmission of vital signs and other health status measures such as pedometer readings. The image feature works on XP, Windows 7 and Vista operating systems.
