International Medical Solutions' Learning Platform Added to ACR Cortex Educational Platform

Secure, fast, cloud-based solution delivers diagnostic images instantly on any viewing device

June 14, 2018 — International Medical Solutions (IMS) recently announced that the American College of Radiology (ACR) added IMS' Educational Toolkit to the ACR technology portfolio that supports medical imaging education. IMS will provide an option to users of ACR Cortex that includes the ability to perform true DICOM viewing and engage in interactive, web-based assessments. The IMS toolkit will be utilized for projects that include resident training, CME, and other ACR educational programs throughout North America that involve a dynamic educational and assessment experience.

ACR believes the IMS Educational Toolkit represents an advancement in the manner in which their educational platform can access and present web-based images. "We found the IMS technology to be a good complement to the ACR Cortex radiology learning platform. Their flexible, cost-effective solution will allow us to provide a rich, interactive viewing experience to hundreds of learners simultaneously over the web," said Mike Tilkin, chief information officer of ACR.

Since the IMS Educational Toolkit does not require software downloads, special apps or server-side rendering, it allows educators to train radiologists in a more efficient and cost-effective manner, under the same conditions they will see in their practices.

Tilkin added, "We believe a high-fidelity learning experience that simulates how radiology is practiced is an essential component of the ongoing learning process and will ultimately contribute to better patient care."
