In this scientific session, researchers from the University of Maryland in Baltimore will take a close look at the device generating significant buzz in the radiology community: Apple's iPad.

The talk will introduce the iPad, evaluate its technical specifications, explore the issues surrounding U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) medical device clearance, and examine its potential radiology applications, said presenter Kamran Shah, MD.

Though technical and medicolegal considerations currently preclude its use for primary interpretation, the iPad can offer a portable means for house staff to view radiographic images and reports, Shah told AuntMinnie.com. Speech recognition applications are also possible due to its built-in microphone and speaker.

Other possible iPad uses in radiology include resident education, opportunities for clinician and patient interactions, and a number of electronic medical record (EMR) applications, according to Shah.

"Its portability could enable a host of unique applications, including use within a sterile, operating room environment," he said.
