1 William Weadock, MD Frank Londy Sarah Abate James Ellis, MD Incorporating Radiology Teaching Files and Microsoft® PowerPoint® Files into a MIRC SystemDepartment of RadiologyUniversity of Michigan
2 Introduction - MIRC Web-based teaching file system Upload images and textSearch for text with web browserFree text searchDatabase fieldFree software created and supported by RSNA.
3 MIRC Basic Concepts 3 Main Components Storage Query Case creation Web-based authoring toolWeb-based editorOur institution uses RadPix as the authoring tool
4 Why do we use MIRC? Created and supported by RSNA John Perry very responsive to questions and suggestionsAbility to create / edit / export casesWell documentedEmerging standard for teaching filesIntegrates with other systemsMyPACS.net, etc.
5 Why do we use RadPix? PC program DICOM client to receive images Cropping, annotating, window / levelingSlide creationMIRC database fieldsHistory, Diagnosis, Pathology, etc.Upload completed PowerPoint presentationsSearch for text in presentations
6 Why do we use RadPix? Supports our library of collected DICOM images Since 1997Logical and flexible workflowDoes not require Java installationLocked down PC’s in reading rooms
8 Goals of Teaching File System Public area – accessible to the departmentPrivate area - accessible only to the individualContentImages and textPowerPoint® FilesMovies, animations, PDF’s, etc.Quality controlSimple to search

21 User Roles - Public Two levels of users Authors Publishers Faculty, fellows, residents, othersContribute materialPublishersApprove authors’ submissionsFaculty
22 Document Ownership Private files only they can access Multiple owners of a documentProxy creatorsSecretaries, others can create documents for faculty
23 Michigan PACS Configuration Separate DICOM client for each divisionNeuroPC, BonePC, ChestPC, etc.Single PC with multiple DICOM clients receives all imagesSame IP addressDifferent AETitleDifferent portWorkstations configured to send imagesAll images routed to department-wide Novell network (n:\)
40 Uploading PowerPoint® files to MIRC with RadPix Power 2 MIRC
41 Power 2 MIRC Features Extracts text from PowerPoint® files Includes titles, text boxes, notesSplits PowerPoint® filesFor example, if there are 15 different cases in a presentation, they can each be uploaded separately into MIRCMIRC data fieldsHistory, findings, pathology, etc.
51 Current Status of our System CT, US, MRI conferencesAVI’s includedPPT files split up - 1 for each caseStandardized template for conferencesMedical student lectures – upcoming article in Journal of Digital Imaging
52 Future Local PC / Laptop support Extract certain cases to local PC Search Local PCExternal UM MIRC site?RSNA RadlexReplacement for ACR codingAccess from outside world via InternetVirtual Private Network (VPN)
