Creative Applications for Social Media (Login may be required)
The world of social media is an ever-evolving sign of the times, but how can it be used in the world of medical imaging? We will introduce attendees to social media, explore creative applications of social media for improving communication within the radiology department, as well as outside the department, discuss privacy concerns, and talk about how to mitigate negative information posted on social networks.
Got A Great Idea or Designed an Informatics Tool? Now What? (Login may be required)
This session will be led by those experienced in developing ideas and tools to improve the radiology reading room and the experiences they have had in trying to get their ideas out there and used by a wider audience. The challenges of how to start out, where to seek help, whether to go the for-profit or not-for-profit route, when to contact or work with “big industry,” and other related experiences will be discussed.
Mobile Technologies in Medical Imaging (Login may be required)
This session will look into the latest in mobile technology including medical apps that are available for use. In addition to hardware specifications, we will look into other key factors to consider such as security when using mobile devices within a given practice.
Mobilizing DICOM Access to a PACS System (Login may be required)
With increasing adoption of mobile hardware technologies in healthcare, there is increasing demand for DICOM Storage and Query/Retrieve capabilities from mobile devices. The goal of this scientific session is to explore a way(s) to enable mobile DICOM devices by adding dynamic configuration DICOM management onto a legacy PACS environment.
Quality Assurance Approach for IPv6 Portability of Radiology Workflow (Login may be required)
Limitations of Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) are driving medical imaging industry to move towards IPv6 to leverage the benefits of the new version. This transition will compel several key actors in the Radiology workflow (e.g., modalities, PACS, printers, etc) to enhance their infrastructure.This paper discusses a study performed on the Quality Assurance approach for migrating a Radiology network from IPv4 to V6 protocol in a Windows OS environment.
When Will the Web Become the Workstation? Current State of the HTML-based DICOM Image Viewer (Login may be required)
Medical imaging has become integral to current medical practice, and image viewing is now the domain of the clinicians throughout the enterprise, not only the radiologist. Thus, there is a clear need to provide non-radiologist clinicians with a mechanism for accessing the institutional image archive that can be integrated into patient care activities. Healthcare providers and institutions have implemented a variety of solutions to address the need for enterprise image viewing.
