Radiology departments have traditionally used film-based collections of interesting cases for teaching purposes.
Film-based files are expensive to create and duplicate, and they physically occupy considerable space.
As one solution to these problems, our department created an on-line radiology teaching file in digital format.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
Our teaching file resides on a Macintosh Quadra 700 computer that is connected to the Internet, a worldwide network of interconnected computers, via our campus Ethernet network.
Our digital teaching file images and text are composed in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and are made available to the world with Webserver software known as MacHTTP.
These teaching files are accessed using World-Wide Web (WWW) client software such as Mosaic, MacWeb, or Netscape.
Our digital teaching file is available at no charge to anyone in the world with access to the Internet and WWW client software.
Our radiology residents can access this file via several workstations in our department.
Mosaic is an easy-to-use interface, and the use of our digital teaching file has increased significantly.
In the 3 months since its creation, our teaching file has been accessed not only by our radiology residents but also by hundreds of other users in 33 countries.
