iPod as a radiology and diagnosis tool, not just music.

iPod Helps Radiologists Manage Medical Images.


This is not about music or entertainment, this is about health, science and cool hacking.



Radiologists from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), are now employing iPod Photo as a diagnosis tool and for medical images storage, thanks to iPod Photo huge hard disk, portability and reliability.


Actually, iPod is just the front end to an open-source software, called OsiriX, that has been specifically developed to fit MDs needs.


 


OsiriX is a Mac-based (!) application that allows Medical community exchange medical images simply by connecting iPod and downloading/uploading images on a Mac.


"Dr. Rosset set up the OsiriX software to automatically recognize and search for medical images on the iPod. When it detects the images, they automatically appear on the list of image data available—similar to the way music files are accessible by the iTune music application."


Fact is, that iPod as a consumer device, is being used as a scientific tool by scientific users. Great idea, pretty interesting trend, interesting approach. Are Medical Doctors the last hackers to add up to Mac/iPod community?
