A year-end thank you; iPad vs. Kinect for image review

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

The last days of 2012 are upon us, and as the year draws to a close, we'd like to thank all of you -- our members -- for your support during the year.

AuntMinnie was founded 13 years ago with an idea that popped into the head of a radiologist -- the late Dr. Phillip Berman -- that the Internet could be used to deliver news, education, and collaboration faster and more effectively than traditional media.

Dr. Berman passed away in 2009, but his vision lives on. And for that we're thankful, both to him and to you.

In 2013, we'll continue to look for new ways to bring you the quality content that's helped us achieve Dr. Berman's vision. We're looking forward to having you along for the ride.

As always, please send any suggestions or comments on how we can improve AuntMinnie.com to me at [email protected].

iPad vs. Kinect for image review

New technologies such as Apple's iPad and Microsoft Kinect are increasingly being used by radiologists as tools for image review. This week in our Advanced Visualization Digital Community, we bring you a study that assessed their value for intraoperative review of interventional radiology images.

The goal is to find an interface for image review and manipulation that can be used in the challenging environment of a hospital's interventional radiology suite, with its sterile-field requirements.

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego compared Kinect and the iPad in the interventional radiology suite, as well as a third alternative image review technique that uses gyroscopic sensors similar to Nintendo's Wii game controller.
