Our History

Pioneers of Digital Medical Information Sharing since 1999

For over fifteen years, Sorna has developed groundbreaking solutions that simplify the distribution and management of medical studies for healthcare professionals. Since its founding in 1999, Sorna has offered an evolving suite of software and CD / DVD burning systems that have improved the medical information sharing workflows of thousands of healthcare facilities worldwide. History has proven Sorna’s commitment to delivering industry-leading, first-of-their-kind products that support our motto: Harmony. Innovation. Simplicity.

October 1999: Sorna Corporation was founded and began pioneering the concept of distributing DICOM compliant CDs in place of film.

January 2000: Sorna debuted the FilmX™ DICOM CD burner, identified as the first networked system available in North America. Just three months later, FilmX CD burners were being used in hospital radiology departments nationwide. Starting with its first 100% DICOM conformant CD burner, Sorna set the industry standard for DISC production.

January 2005: Sorna released eXpedo™, its next generation of DISC publishing systems. eXpedo’s intelligent software with customizable DISCflow™ profiles was integrated into the largest selection of CD / DVD recorders, and offered options to meet the budgets and production requirements of small to high volume users.

November 2006: Sorna released the Reviewer™ software suite, providing medical professionals a hassle-free tool for viewing and importing external studies from portable media into a PACS or digital archive. Reviewer was designed to automate and expedite the process of importing patient data and diagnostic studies from any DICOM source.

July 2008: Offered free of charge, Reviewer CD was released based on Sorna’s philosophy that to improve patient care, healthcare professionals deserved a well-designed DICOM viewer to have a consistent viewing platform for their incoming CDs / DVDs.

June 2011: The first of Sorna’s patents was issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its pioneering efforts with medical data recording. Sorna has since had several patents issued and has additional patents pending.

June 2012: Continuing its philosophy of improved patient care, Sorna added the Plus+ feature to the Reviewer suite, further enhancing capabilities for viewing and importing proprietary DISCs, and eliminating the need for healthcare professionals to re-image patients or submit secondary requests for DICOM DISCs.

May 2014: Sorna added Plus+ to Reviewer CD, free of charge.

November 2014: Sorna released its latest software innovation, Vertex®, the ultimate gateway for data sharing. Vertex combines all the best features of disparate medical imaging applications into one IT-friendly software that integrates seamlessly with existing DISC production hardware and cloud-sharing solutions. Utilizing Vertex’s simple, intuitive, drag-and-drop functionality, users can share data from any source to any destination with a single application.
