RSNA: CT Colonoscopy running on an iPad

Researchers from the University of Pisa, Italy presented on their work on CT Colonoscopy using an iPad running OsiriX HD. They compared the image quality and time to read on both the iPad and an iMac desktop computer also running OsiriX in a retrospective sudy of 23 CT Colonoscopy exams. According to their results, all lesions detected on the iMac were also identified on the iPad and their segmentation was correctly assessed in all cases. The downside of the iPad is in the fact that the evaluation was more time-consuming on the iPad.
The iPad 2 will not substitute for standalone workstations, because they have large displays and multiple image processing tools, among other advantages, according to Neri, whereas the iPad’s advantage is its portability. Nevertheless, the iPad 2 may be used for discussions of cases in multidisciplinary sessions. More about this presentation can be found on HealthImaging.
