Todays Outline Brief Overview of MIRC MIRC Concepts and Lexicon. Live demo of the Authoring process Questions
Brief Survey! Who has used MIRC to access cases/information? Who has a MIRC site at their institution/practice? Who has tried authoring a teaching file case for a MIRC?
M edical I maging R esource C enter What is a MIRC????
MIRC Concepts MIRC is an RSNA sponsored initiative. A continual work in progress. Built in the spirit of the open-source community. The key technical concepts: –MIRC is a community of cooperating libraries on the Internet. –The libraries cooperate by supporting a common query mechanism. –The query mechanism allows users to find information wherever it is stored.
MIRC Objective MIRC objectives reach beyond Teaching Files. Support the production, storage, indexing and distribution of medical imaging resources: –Teaching files –Scientific & technical documentation –Research images & datasets –Clinical trials data
MIRC Compatibility MIRC supports all information storage formats. –Images: DICOM, GIF, JPEG, PNG –Hyperlinks to other web content. –Virtually any content that is displayable in a web browser. –Pointers to other files for downloading.
The MIRC Schemas MIRCdocument –Format for documents on the RSNA site. –Format for Index Cards on the RSNA site. MIRCquery & MIRCqueryresponse –Format for communication between Query Services and Storage Service Indexes. MIRCsiteindex –Format for remote site indexing.
MIRC Server Components Query Service –An entry point into the MIRC community for a user on the Internet. –Creates/transmits using MIRCquery schema. Storage Service –A cooperating information library. –Index: the librarys card catalog. –Server: the librarys shelves. –Responds to MIRCquery using the MIRCqueryresponse schema.
Internet Server Index MIRC Sites Server Index RSNA User Server Index MIRC Storage Service: - Document Authoring - Document Storage - Document Indexing - Web Server MIRC Query Service: - Access to the community MIRC Sites
Authoring requires assembling images and text to submit to MIRC storage service. Whats New? –New Templates –More powerful and customizable authoring service –Image annotations MIRC Authoring Service
Types of MIRC Documents Select from multiple templates in MIRC Author Service to help you build content including: –Standard teaching file template –Page-format document template –Tab-format document template –Simple teaching file template
Guidelines The document types can be modified, that is, elements can be added or subtracted. The document types provide basic structure to your content. Decide which document type to use depending on the content type. Pick the suitable display format for your content.
Viewing Document in a Browser Once you save the case, you can open it by searching the server. If you need to make changes, do so and resave the document. If you need to delete the case, you can do so by going to the document tab after opening the case. Remember, you can re-open old submissions, make changes and resubmit the case
Enough Talk!!! How do we Author???
