“DICOM Images On My iPad”

  “Was contacted for a consultation by the team orthopedic surgeon for a premier D1 athlete of a Big 12 state university. The athlete had a tibial fracture that had not healed. Obviously, a picture/Xray and CT scan were essential to provide an opinion. By linking the trainers up to mymedicalimages.com, I was able to review all, within minutes, as DICOM images on my iPad. The ability to give an opinion, almost instantaneously, as to the best treatment option despite being halfway across the country is unique and can definitely facilitate and change how we practice our profession going forward.”
