This blog provides information on conferences and novelties in the area of Medical Imaging Informatics (MII).
MII has a broad scope ranging from the Radiology Information System and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) to Advanced Visualization and Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD).
To find new opportunities in healthcare we need to look at informatics solutions in other areas to apply them into the medical field to achieve higher level healthcare at lower costs.
Keeping Hackers Out of Implanted Medical Devices - IEEE - The Institute
The hacking of medical devices is not only limited to equipement in the hospital containing patient related information but, according to some, also could happen to implanted medical devices such as pacemakers.
A group of researchers therefore developed a prototype of a firewall for such devices to guard them from malicious attacks.
