Abstract


Radiology Toolbox Pro is an iOS App for radiology. An ectopic brain for practicing radiologists, residents, radiology technologists, students, and other health care practitioners, the app is available on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Like all medical professionals, radiologists have to commit a large volume of information to memory. In most reading rooms there are photocopied quick references taped to the walls for easy recall of frequently used information. Even with the advent of ubiquitous internet access, it is still time consuming to search for a specific fact during the course of clinical work.

Radiology Toolbox Pro is a collection of tools; the charts, diagrams and calculators to be used in the radiology reading room, on call, and for general reference. In today’s practice environment, even sub-specialists often find themselves covering for studies outside of their particular areas of expertise. Multi-platform mobile applications allow for convenient access to information, vital to the efficient use of time.

The app was created by a practicing radiologist for use in his own practice. The most frequently referred to tools, such as the Bosniak criteria for renal cysts, the Fleischner Society solitary pulmonary nodule recommendations, and eGFR calculator were included. The appropriate journal references are also provided.

Radiology Toolbox Pro allows for the user to submit suggestions for additional tools from within the app itself. As a work in progress, the feedback from the user base will help to determine what will be included in future updates.
