International Diagnostic Collaboration in Radiology

As an information scientist, I am always impressed to learn about new techniques being utilized to enhance outcomes for patients using modern technology.  During my internship I have rapidly come to appreciate that medicine is one of the most sophisticated information systems in the world.

You have seen our previous posts about featured Radiology apps, today I want to call attention to another, called Figure 1.  Figure 1 allows physicians to share de-identified medical images (radiologic or otherwise) to seek opinions from other physicians to improve diagnosis.  Certainly something to include when the ‘Radiology Apps III’ poster is designed!  You can see a more detailed description of the app for now at radrounds.
