An inexpensive computer-based digital imaging teaching file.AJR Am J Roentgenol. 1993 Jun; 160(6):1299-301.AA
Despite a decade and a half of digital imaging in radiology, most radiology teaching files remain film-based. The reasons include the high cost or unavailability of digital acquisition and display devices. In the past few years, a number of excellent exhibits that combine inexpensive microcomputers with radiologic education have been shown at national meetings [1-6]. Unfortunately, many of these methods require esoteric hardware, expensive or proprietary software, or special programming skills. We developed a simple method for creating and disseminating a teaching file of imaging studies obtained with digital techniques.
