ECR 2009 October 8, 2008

Posted by tomography in Diagnostic Imaging 2.0, Radiology.

ESRECR 2009 is the annual summit of the European Society of Radiology, and it is scheduled to be held between the 6-10th of March, 2009 in Vienna, Austria. The submission deadline is long behind us, so like a lot of other possible attendees, I am also eagerly awaiting my confirmation email. Until it arrives, I have decided to share the abstract of my presentation with you, which I will be giving in the education exhibit. Here it is:

Diagnostic Imaging 2.0: Radiology and Web 2.0.

Author Block A. Székely; Debrecen/HU

Abstract: Learning Objectives: To demonstrate how Web 2.0 tools may enhance communication amongst Radiologists; how these tools can help physicians stay up-to-date with their professions more efficiently, and how the “Social Web” can facilitate medical education.
Background: In 2004, a new chapter was opened in the history of the Internet as more emphasis was put on communication, community and creativity. Medical professionals have realized the opportunities of this “Social Web”, and Diagnostic Imaging 2.0 emerged as a set of Web 2.0 tools tailored for the needs of Diagnostic Imaging professionals. In this presentation I am going to illustrate Diagnostic Imaging 2.0; describe these special online tools; provide solutions to improve collegial communication, and show how tracking information can be more efficient online.
Procedure Details: Since May, 2007 I have researched and written about Imaging 2.0 on my medical web log: TomographyBlog.com. This blog is a popular source for Radiologists for the latest developments in Imaging 2.0 and in the industry. I have hosted a five- week educational quiz in partnertship with the University of Debrecen Nuclear Medicine Department on this site. Overall turnout was 67% among the target student population. TomographyBlog also has an international Rare Cases Forum that is open to all Diagnostic Imaging professionals. SeekRadiology was designed to put all relevant search engines onto one clear page, and found many supporters in the medical community.
Conclusion: Diagnostic Imaging 2.0, a set of Web 2.0 tools for diagnostic imaging professionals, makes collegial communication, medical education, and keeping-up with the latest events more efficient.

You are welcome to share your abstracts as well regarding this summit, and also to comment on my.
