Apps for Radiologists

Marriage of computers with radiology created the revolution in radiology. Now with internet and mobile apps there is potential for newer roles played by these devices in future for radiologists.

Smart phone apps  for radiologists are on the rise. Not only do they assist the radiologist in reference to information but they can also aid in their day-to-day functioning too most notably through DICOM viewers.The visual nature of radiology makes the specialty a promising area for smartphone app development. 

Teaching (e.g. flashcards, questions, revision guides/notes, textbooks, cases, tutorials/talks, etc.) and reference (e.g. guidelines, cancer staging, radiology positioning guides, scanning protocols, glossaries, calculators, converters, etc.) apps count for 79% of radiology apps
