1 A vendor and location independent workstation tool for case consultation in private or in a cloud based environment Edu Rad Journal of Radiology Case Reports Roland Talanow, MD PhD EduRad, South Lake Tahoe, NV

2 The Problem Especially general and solo radiologists face often situations in which they are in need for a peer consultation for a difficult case.

3 The Problem This becomes a: Workflow issue because time consuming literature research might delay the workflow Medical-legal issue if providing potentially an inaccurate report. Desired solution: radiologists who are in need for a case consultation receive such in a timely manner!

4 Approach to the solution This tool allows radiologists taking images from the current case study and sending it to a dedicated section in a protected community of over 13,000 Radiology professionals OR directly to a specialist's workstation. This community has been used for several years for case consultation Opinions about cases are usually provided within minutes to hours.

5 Approach to the solution No installation is needed and thus can be used in an environment with limited user rights. The program mask: is short and intuitive is short and intuitive provides several options for provides several options for taking the image from the workstation taking the image from the workstation title title short description where a question can be placed short description where a question can be placed optional case relevant parameters optional case relevant parameters

6 Approach to the solution Many Extras: Multiple capture functions (image, video)Multiple capture functions (image, video) Multiple editor functions (e.g. for de-identification)Multiple editor functions (e.g. for de-identification) Multiple export functions for different needs (image, zip, video)Multiple export functions for different needs (image, zip, video) Skype-like communication with your connectionsSkype-like communication with your connections File sharing/private file protfolioFile sharing/private file protfolio Radiology specific search engineRadiology specific search engine Radiology news automatically fetchedRadiology news automatically fetched

7 Approach to the solution With one mouse click the case can be sent: to community of professionals where cases can be discussed amongst a group of peers/specialists or in a private consultation - also as realtime chat.to community of professionals where cases can be discussed amongst a group of peers/specialists or in a private consultation - also as realtime chat.OR directly to a persons workstationdirectly to a persons workstation

8 Approach to the solution If sent to community: The user may choose to display their name or stay anonymous.The user may choose to display their name or stay anonymous. As soon as a peer provides an opinion, the user will be notified via .As soon as a peer provides an opinion, the user will be notified via . The user may also discuss this case with peers in the protected community to get more insight.The user may also discuss this case with peers in the protected community to get more insight. Cases can be also discussed in a private consultation - also as realtime chat.Cases can be also discussed in a private consultation - also as realtime chat.

9 Approach to the solution If sent to private person (directly to workstation): Skype-like communicationSkype-like communication Discuss in realtime chatDiscuss in realtime chat Share other (supportive) filesShare other (supportive) files Private file portfolio (HIPAA compliant)Private file portfolio (HIPAA compliant) Ask other trusted connections for second, third or more opinionsAsk other trusted connections for second, third or more opinions

10 How it works Step 1 Go on and download the file (ONE SINGLE file!) You can place it on your desktop or on your flash drive and carry it wherever you need it - thus being also workstation/location independent No installation necessary! - Bypassing permission restrictions encountered in common hospital/practice setting

11 How it works Just plugin – NO installation necessary!

12 How it works Many image edit functions (e.g. de-identify, crop, splice etc.)

13 How it works Many image annotation possibilities for decision support and teaching

14 How it works Add images to image stacks… Save images in different image formats …or altogether in a zip file or internal file format for later editing

15 How it works Capture screen actions as video Preferences allow capturing certain areas or all you see

16 How it works Sophisticated video capture options

17 How it works Save as video… …or as image stack (e.g. for Journal of Radiology Case Report interactive stacks)

18 How it works Images in image stack can be named specifically

19 How it works Ask colleagues for second opinion, advice via protected private chat

20 How it works Share captured image or files from local computer with peers.

21 How it works Control your own private file portfolio and with whom you share (e.g. for second opinion)

22 How it works Create easily teaching files

23 How it works Create teaching files and share in the community or ask other professionals in the community for their opinions

24 How it works Teach students, discuss your case with peers or ask specialists for opinions

25 Relevant information The program instantly provides you with additional information relevant to your case (images, cases, publications) How it works

26 Customize the program for your needs with many preference settings

27 How it works Integrated Radiology specific search engine for any spontaneous question during your work

28 Integrated Search Engine Find images, videos and many more valuable resources How it works

29 Literature Search Even a relevant literature search for your case can be performed How it works

30 Integrated latest Radiology news are provided in a separate tab

31 How it works The program stays always in the background – ready whenever you need it

32 Discussion This vendor-independent solution allows: taking images ad videos directly from the screentaking images ad videos directly from the screen exporting files and casesexporting files and cases sending them through an intuitive interface tosending them through an intuitive interface to a protected community of Radiology professionalsa protected community of Radiology professionals directly to a specialist's workstation for immediate consultationdirectly to a specialist's workstation for immediate consultation

33 Discussion This tool can be integrated in other communitiesother communities practicespractices hospitalshospitals to provide a quick case consult without the need to purchase expensive software.

34 Conclusion This free clinical tool for radiologists allows receiving quickly and easily consultations from peers / specialists for their difficult cases. This tool helps especially solo radiologists or radiologists in remote locations improving their workflow and decreasing medical-legal liability by increasing the accuracy of the reports.
