A large UK society of musculoskeletal radiologists has announced that it will pilot a new platform to facilitate on-line discussions of cases between the society’s 400 members.

The Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS)-based platform developed by a UK healthcare communications technology company includes a zero-footprint fully diagnostic display of complete Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) datasets, and a secure blog that enables radiologists to review and comment on patient cases.

The PACSMail Cloud eMDT platform developed by Sybermedica (Cambridge, UK) will be accessible to radiologists from the website of the British Society of Skeletal Radiologists (BSSR; UK) a professional body of more than 400 muculoskeletal (MSK) radiologists in the UK. The BSSR provides a UK national forum enabling radiologists to discuss issues related to MSK radiology imaging and practice.

The PACSMail Cloud eMDT platform will enable BSSR members to review anonymized cases they have uploaded with other radiologists in the network. The platform enables multi-disciplinary teams of clinicians to share patient notes, and related diagnostic information online. The platform allows real-time collection and dissemination of clinical comments by using an innovative secure 'Case Blog'. BSSR member radiologists will also be able to make use of the growing library of cases, as they are uploaded, for educational purposes.
