CHICAGO, April 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (HIMSS'09, Booth #3974) -- Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) is re-engineering and redesigning the web site "CTisUS" (www.ctisus.com) to deliver intuitive navigation to state-of-the-practice medical imaging content for radiologic technologists and other allied healthcare professionals who access the site every day from more than 100 countries. "CTisUS" was created and is maintained by The Advanced Medical Imaging Laboratory, a multidisciplinary team headed by Elliot K. Fishman, M.D., director of Diagnostic Imaging and Body CT at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. The announcement was made during the HIMSS'09 Healthcare IT Conference and Exhibition being held April 4-8 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
"The site is one of the premier medical imaging web sites used by radiologists and other medical specialists around the world for access to study protocols, case studies, vodcasts, podcasts, and Continuing Medical Education (CME) opportunities," said Jim Traficant, vice president of Harris Healthcare Solutions. "With advanced content management technology from Harris, users of this web site can more readily access valuable medical imaging resources to enhance radiology education, training, and patient care."
