MedImage Cases™: A New Medical e-Textbook from Projects In Knowledge®
Date:7/12/2011

LITTLE FALLS, N.J., July 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Projects In Knowledge (www.projectsinknowledge.com), the leading developer of cutting-edge digital and mobile information tools for busy clinicians, has just launched its newest free electronic medical textbook series: MedImage Cases, offered online and soon as a free iPhone/iPad app.

This point-of-care clinical companion explores the complexities of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and other imaging modalities used to diagnose and monitor a variety of diseases, presented through a compilation of intriguing patient cases. Each case presentation, narrated by a leading specialty expert, consists of a thousand words of insightful opinion and analysis of the patient's medical images and history. A transcript of the audio commentary is also provided to enhance understanding of each case study.

Over time, the presentations form a comprehensive mobile case library, which becomes a valuable reference aid and resource that clinicians will access frequently in daily practice. Downloadable education materials for patients and clinicians are also provided as supplemental resources.

The inaugural MedImage Cases series focuses on the important role of the MRI in the diagnosis and management of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). This debilitating neurologic disease has no cure and profoundly alters the lives of affected individuals and their caregivers. Conventional and nonconventional MRIs have different advantages and limitations in measuring disease activity, disease progression, and response to MS therapy. By gaining insights into MRI best practices, neurologists and other clinicians who treat patients with MS can improve and personalize treatment interventions for optimal outcomes. A new MS patient case is added every 2 weeks, with a total of 26 cases released throughout the year.

Clinicians can earn free continuing medical education (CME/CE) credit for each case activity they complete. In addition, clinicians will soon be able to submit their own unusual or compelling patient MRIs and case narrations to the editorial board for possible inclusion in this collection, making MedImage Cases a dynamic and relevant educational tool. The series is offered both online at http://mic.projectsinknowledge.com/ and as a free iPhone/iPad app, coming soon, for easy access at the point of care.

"We're pleased to introduce our new MedImage case-based educational format with MS as the first topic. MS is one of the most challenging diseases out there, and the MRI is a vital tool in its diagnosis and management," said Patty Peterson, CCMEP, Senior Vice President of Projects In Knowledge. "This program offers an excellent and convenient opportunity for clinicians to keep current on the advances being made in imaging technology, explained by noted experts who provide practical insights on the application of these technological advances to patient care."

Future editions of MedImage Cases will focus on other diseases and cover a variety of imaging modalities, such as computed tomography and positron emission tomography, and will also incorporate other image types and visuals, such as photographs and lab reports.
