Due to the overwhelming number of requests by many radiologists from around the world including many radRounds members, we have decided to put together a brief overview, preview, and schedule of events for workshops and educational sessions related to OsiriX, iPhone, and Apple Macs at the upcoming RSNA 2008 in Chicago.
Introduction to OsiriX - The Mac OS X Open Source Medical Imaging Viewer
This hands-on workshop will take you through the basic installation, set-up and use of OsiriX. Attendees will be taught the basic workflow including: how to set-up application Preferences, importing DICOM images, comparing studies, 2D and 3D viewing tools, and exporting results to e-mail, iPhoto and QuickTime.
Presenter: Mike Steigner, M.D. Attending Radiologist Non-invasive Cardiovascular Imaging. Brigham and Women's Hospital
Advanced OsiriX 3.3 Features - Mac OS X Open Source Medical Imaging Viewer
Attendees will learn the latest additions to the OsiriX application. Version 3.3 of OsiriX will be demonstrated, including full 64-bit support with advanced 3D and 4D image visualization tools that include multimodality image processing with PET-CT and PET-MR imaging. New features to be demonstrated will include: teleradiology/teleconferencing support, segmentation and registration tools, cardiac imaging tools (Cardiac-CT, Cardiac PET-CT, Cardiac MR), and the new workflow scheme (DICOM SR, Workspace state, new Database format). Attendees will be able to test these new features on professional Mac Pro workstations and also see the new OsiriX iPhone viewer.

The Mac for Managing Medical Informatics
This session will review the use of core informatics technologies within Mac OS X as an image management system. The presentation will be relevant for all radiology users, but will emphasize strategies for radiology research and education users. OsiriX image export to iPhoto, iPhoto integration with iWeb to create web galleries, and the power of Spotlight searches as a search engine, will be demonstrated. Roaming data sync capabilities using the iPhone/Touch iPod with the Apple Mobileme.com server will be discussed.
