- We can order this
The Internet has proven to be a great resource for the medical community. It has specifically had a great impact on the practice of Radiology. It has enabled the proliferation, installation, and acceptance of adjunct technologies such as Picture Archiving (PACS), electronic medical record (EMR) and Voice Recognition (VR). The number of radiology-specific web sites just 5 years ago was about 30. A recent compilation now numbers in the thousands. Computer technology and the Internet have revolutionized the way radiologists work on a daily basis. All aspects of the Internet and related technologies are explained in this book.

From the reviews:
"Part one of the book (31 pages) begins by outlining the history of the World Wide Web, the hardware and software involved and how it is all combined to form active networks. ... Part two (15 pages) is concerned with `tools of utility' ... . Part three (10 pages) covers the technologies revolutionising radiology. ... Part four provides 69 pages of radiology website addresses. ... It should prove useful for registrars embarking on the radiology route, as it would for undergraduate radiography students." (D Peach, RAD Magazine, October, 2003)
"This book is part of a series covering the use of Internet in various medical specialities. ... The range of topics covered is wide. The text is generally well written and easy to read. The list of websites is very valuable. ... This book can be recommended as an easily read overview of Internet-related computer use in radiology, with short descriptions of relevant terms, techniques and applications."
