Dear Imaging Informatics Insider,
This newsletter's Insider Exclusive features the debut of a new ongoing series highlighting mobile apps in radiology.
The inaugural edition of Mobile App Spotlight offers a Q&A with the developer of Radiology Toolbox Pro, a finalist in the category of Best Radiology Mobile App for AuntMinnie.com's 2014 Minnies awards. Click here to read the article before it's available to our other members.
In other articles in this issue, we're offering coverage of some notable vendor developments in imaging informatics. Display vendor Barco recently debuted Coronis Uniti, a new display that can accommodate both grayscale and color applications. In addition, cloud storage provider Box is eyeing the image sharing market with a bid to acquire cloud-based RIS/PACS software developer MedXT.
Also, learn how informatics will play a key role at Sidra Medical and Research Center, a new all-digital academic hospital for women and children set to open in 2015 in Doha, Qatar.
In other news, social networking is no longer optional for radiologists, according to a recent paper in Academic Radiology. Click here to learn why.
A Turkish research group has developed a grid computing model to smooth the practice of teleradiology between institutions, even if they use different PACS, RIS, or hospital information systems. Learn more here.
We're also featuring coverage of the recent New York Medical Imaging Informatics Symposium, including articles on how big data in radiology will drive personalized patient care, how Hurricane Sandy served as an impetus for creating significant and lasting workflow improvements at NYU Langone Medical Center's radiology department, and why regulation should keep health IT safe without slowing innovation.
