The iPad continues to make room for itself in healthcare and here is the latest: Radiopeadia, the largest online Radiology resource has updated its teaching files so that they are more enjoyable on Apple’s  Ipad.  Read the press release below:

Melbourne, Australia, July 1, 2010 – Radiopaedia.org, a collaborative, online resource for the global radiological community, is pleased to announce that its popular iPhone app Radiology Teaching Files Version 2.0 has been fully optimized for the iPad which features multiple scrollable stacks with up to 350 images per case plus links to additional online cases. Head and Neck, the first of six volumes, is now available for purchase from iTunes App Store.

Radiopaedia.org ensures the Radiology Teaching Files App for the iPad has improved on the usability and flexibility of its iPhone application by allowing multiple scrollable stacks on each case with up to 350 images per case.
