Google to get medical imaging information fast

"According to Diagnostic Imaging By Fishman at 2007 RSNA meeting. Radiologists seeking a specific piece of medical information online should consider initiating searches with Google, which provides a list of medical resources likely to contain the information needed. Number of links needed to get to the answer in google was found to be 1.5, yahoo-1.9, and pubmed-4.25."

Congress should pass legislation to ensure MT companies who say they are HIPAA compliant are indeed. Their should be a credentialing system similar to ISO 9000 standards. See How to Become HIPAA Compliant

The new Radiology specific and peer-reviewed search engine www.RadiologySearch.net addresses exactly this issue ("should consider initiating searches with Google").
Peer-reviewed contents & websites are included in the search, thus shortening the time needed to find relevant information & increasing the specificity of the results.

Instead of using non-specific or multiple different search engines for specific tasks, www.RadiologySearch.net combines it all in one.
However, a non-peer-reviewed search is also possible, which uses the Google search as known by most users.

It received a very good feedback at the RSNA 2007 and was also featured on AuntMinnie.com as well in the RSNA Daily scan.

I saw a presentation about www.RadiologySearch.net at the last ARRS meeting in Washington - nice work.

RadiologySearch was also awarded by the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) in 2008.
