To learn mobile wireless DICOM server. To learn wiki - a web collaboration tool. To learn wiki DICOM viewer and teaching files. To learn voice control PDAs.
The purpose of this exhibit is to demonstrate a new mobile system for radiologists using wireless mobile DICOM server (MDS) and viewer system with wiki web collaboration tools and voice control personal digital assistants (VC-PDAs). The hardware consists of the pocket-size Linux MDS with a built-in wireless LAN access point and wireless VC-PDAs. Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit webpage content using a simple markup language with any web browser. We completed some wiki plugins for DICOM viewer and teaching files. Radiologists can easily author and edit their own wiki webpages, DICOM images, and thumbnail images with suitable layout using accessible VC-PDAs or PCs. The length of source scripts for wiki web page is shorter than that of HTML scripts and a wiki editable source document is easy to master for radiologists. We conclude this novel system is a useful web collaboration tool for education, conference, and research for radiologists.
