November 24, 2015 — Calgary Scientific Inc. announced that they will be showcasing a new radiology education tool called RadIQ in Calgary Scientific’s booth at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2015 annual meeting. The platform was developed by the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Radiology. RadIQ provides hands-on case review via mobile devices and simulates the way radiologists and cardiologists review medical images on-the-job.

RadIQ eliminates the burden of in-person training and takes the extra step of ensuring that images are of diagnostic quality, guaranteeing a real-world, mobile experience. This is achieved through the use of ResolutionMD, Calgary Scientific’s U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) class II-cleared enterprise image-viewing solution. The combination of these advanced technologies simulates a reading room environment and delivers continually updated content, providing doctors with efficient ways to earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits that fit into their schedules, using the device that suits their work style.

“We created RadIQ to integrate into the best-of-breed technologies for content delivery,” said Garry Choy, co-director of RadIQ and assistant chief medical information officer at Massachusetts General Physicians Organization. “In this case, delivery of full DICOM datasets anywhere, anytime either Web-based or mobile-based was critical to innovating online CME. With the Calgary Scientific and RadIQ partnership, we are able to deliver a full PACS-like environment in an educational experience on your phone or on your laptop. Together, we can help set the pace in innovating online and mobile-CME in radiology.”
