Radiology on the information superhighway.
To explore the potential for the information superhighway to provide radiologists with new opportunities.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
The Internet was used as the communication and distribution medium.
MOSAIC, a graphical interface, provided access for clients, and a computer was used to serve text, images, sound, and cine onto the Internet.
The system can be used to send reports and images to referring physicians or consulting radiologists ; to provide a large database that is constantly available ; to provide an increasing collection of teaching files ; and to distribute interactive, multimedia teaching tools that can be used on any computer system.
The use of the MOSAIC interface facilitates interaction, which allows users with limited computer experience to access the system.
The Internet can dramatically expand the ways radiologists interact with their colleagues.
These preliminary results indicate that there will be great challenges and opportunities for improving care and teaching in the future.
