iPhone applications for radiology and medicine are currently being developed by numerous device manufacturers, medical equipment vendors (in radiology and beyond), and healthcare organizations. iPhone appears to be winning significant market share from physicians, radiologists included, as well as other healthcare and medical professionals! In this article, we will feature one example of innovation on the iPhone platform within radiology. A number of iPhone radiology applications are already popular and cited often (for example, the OsiriX iPhone Application is a huge hit even making big waves on the TV screen and at the WWDC; MIMvista is currently developing their iPhone Application for viewing DICOM images; MERGE healthcare also has an iPhone Application for Radiology... the list goes on). Here, we'd like to introduce you to Sonosite's new iPhone Application: SonoAccess! This iPhone app will prove useful and interesting to radiologists, ultrasound technologists, students, and many more. From SonoSite's website: "We've designed this app to give you helpful resources such as videos that demonstrate techniques for specific scanning procedures, quick guides for reimbursement information, and more" SonoAccess™ Ultrasound iPhone App Features: Scanning Techniques The Scanning Technique Videos are designed to provide expert techniques and tips for point-of-care ultrasound applications.

Overall review: Great idea by SonoSite to create SonoAccess for radiology professionals who use the iPhone. Overall, this looks like a great iPhone App for Radiology as more and more radiologists and ultrasound technologists start to adopt the iPhone as their primary mobile device. More applications for the iPhone in medical imaging and radiology are surely to come down the pike.
