Atheer packs Android OS into dual-screen glasses with 3D gesture recognition.
Radiology smartphone apps hold promise for improvements in medical care and education. Several challenges remain for future development.
Brainview is a detailed neuroanatomy app that contains a wealth of information and functionality which will enable budding neurosurgeons and neurologists to learn the appropriate anatomy. The addition quiz and search functions are helpful additions to make the most of the included content
E-anatomy is one of the greatest quality medical apps on the market, suited for clinicians and especially radiologists. The app includes 38 modules consisting of diagrams, angiograms, X-rays, and PACS like navigation of axial and coronal CTs and MRIs.
Over a year ago, we covered the FDA approval of Mobisante’s MobiUS ultrasound, which paired an ultrasound probe with a Windows Toshiba smartphone (which we hope to see moving to Android soon!). A recent patent filing by Sonosite, an ultrasound device maker worth over $750bn, suggests they are moving towards using tablets like the iPad with future ultrasound probes.
NeuroRad for iPad is a fantastic application for radiologist residents with an excellent neuroradiology atlas. NeuroRad has a range of uses for healthcare professionals ranging from student to resident.
NeuroRad Mini for the iOS offers a complete alas of brain MRI imagery on mobile devices
Live demonstration of the MobiUS device from Nikhil George, chief engineer at Mobisante. We also get an update on their plans to move to Android.
Learning anatomy from a textbook feels outdated. Turbocharge your studying with anatomy videos on your iPhone from an experienced professor of clinical anatomy.
The ability to review patients’ imaging studies on smartphones is a natural progression for mobile physicians. Most hospital PACS (Picture archiving and communication system) now allow viewing not only on any hospital computer but often from home PCs. The ability to view the same images from your iPhone would be a great boon for many […]
Last week we did a feature review of the iRadiology App, a recently released free radiology learning tool. I thought it was a must have medical application for medical students and residents. The application provides over 500 radiology cases explained in detail. I had a quick Q&A with Dr. Lieberman to discuss the direction of […]
Review of the iRadiology App, a learning tool with a catalog of over 500 radiology cases designed to help medical students and residents improve their plain film,CT, and MRI reading skills. The cases are derived from Dr. Gillian Lieberman, who is the currently Director of Harvard Medical Student training and Associate Director of the Residency Program at Beth Israel Medical Center. In this review we’ll discuss the application further and also show you how to turn on the “Zoom” feature built into the iPhone that will enable you to improve the utility of this medical app.
