DARIEN, Conn., Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- SearchMedica.com (http://www.searchmedica.com/), the leading search engine for medical professionals, today unveiled its new Radiology search channel. The search channel connects radiologists and other medical professionals with the most timely and relevant online medical imaging resources.
"Radiology touches practically every medical professional at some point, no matter what their specialty," said Edward Grossman, senior vice president of digital media and acquisitions for SearchMedica. "We expect all sorts of medical professionals will tap into this resource, whether seeking research on the latest technological developments or information on how to interpret a patient scan. None of them will encounter the consumer clutter present in mainstream search engines."
The American College of Radiology (http://www.acr.org/), The British Journal of Radiology (http://bjr.birjournals.org/), The Royal College of Radiologists (http://www.rcr.ac.uk/) and The Canadian Association of Radiologists Journal (http://www.carj.ca/index-e.html) represent a sampling of the hundreds of resources available through SearchMedica Radiology.
SearchMedica provides free, open access to the Web's most authoritative content for medical professionals. By default, SearchMedica returns results from "all of medicine," suitable for any medical professional. Specialists can refine their search into any of ten search channels, including practice management, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, pediatric, respiratory and now radiology. In keeping with SearchMedica's mission, the radiology search channel, like the other search channels, removes the clutter clinicians encounter on consumer search engines like Google to provide the best medical research and resources on the Web.
Even before this development, SearchMedica.com was acknowledged for its outstanding user experience as a recipient of the Best Directory or Search Engine WebAward in 2008 and a Standard of Excellence WebAward in 2007.
SearchMedica.com indexes only authoritative medical information, approved for inclusion by medical editors and a physician editorial board. Medical professionals receive more relevant, smaller sets of search results from SearchMedica.com than from mainstream engines, which contain consumer-oriented, paid testimonials and other types of unreliable information. Since SearchMedica.com is advertiser supported, medical professionals pay nothing to use the search engine. All SearchMedica search results are independent and unbiased. They contain well-known, credible journals, peer-reviewed research and evidence-based articles written for practicing healthcare professionals. SearchMedica is currently available at http://www.SearchMedica.com.
