If you think radiologists are still dealing with black & white 2D images – think again! Radiologists now also use expensive equipment to display multi-dimensional imaging, 4D and 5D images, which is moving imagery in 3D.
A radiologist and a professor of nuclear medicine have discovered that iPods are a practical storage device for medical images. Since other medical professionals, not only radiologists, need access to this data, the iPod technology can replace the more expensive equipment, saving hospitals thousands of dollars.
Another example that shows how important it is for physicians to be aware of the latest technology available!
