Many doctors carry tablet computers or smartphones stacked with mobile apps with them at all times. Radiologists, surgeons, and other healthcare providers can utilize these mobile devices and apps to view radiological images on-the-go.

There are a lot of mobile apps that radiologists, surgeons, physicians, residents, and students can use for diagnostic imaging. Most of these apps are made almost for every platform, including desktop and tablet computers, as well as smartphones. 
However, there is an evident deficiency of radiology mobile apps for Android platform. Most of the quality and FDA-approved radiology apps are available on iOS only.
Here, we list some of the best diagnostic imaging and radiology apps that health care providers can use on-the-go.

OsiriX HD App

OsiriX HD app is a most widely used DICOM (a standard for storing and transmitting medical images) image viewer for radiologists, surgeons, and other healthcare providers, enabling them to access and download medical images, and manipulate them using their iPhone or iPad. 
The app is capable of displaying images from all imaging modalities, including ultrasound, CT scanner, MRI, PET, and receiving images from any DICOM imaging device through WiFi/3G networks.
It also provides advanced post-processing techniques in 2D and 3D, exclusive innovative techniques for 3D & 4D navigation, including PET-CT and SPECT-CT fusion, and more. 
The highlights of the app are its fast performance and an intuitive and interactive user interface.
OsiriX HD app is available on Mac, iPad, and iPhone for $49.99 plus additional in-app purchases.

ResolutionMD App

Resolution is the only app in this list that is also available for Android. It is a diagnostic imaging tool, provided as a client-server architecture product that enables healthcare professionals to securely view patient images and reports, collaborate with their colleagues and other providers, and diagnose from any location.
The app streams data from a variety of imaging modalities, including computed radiography, digital radiography, radio-fluoroscopy, angiography, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, endoscopy, and ophthalmology, which all received an FDA clearance. The only modality that isn't cleared is mammography.
Another positive thing is that the app is secure, meaning that no sensitive patient information seems to be transmitted during the process.
As said, ResolutionMD is available on Android and iOS for free.
