Poll: Do You Use an iPad for Medical Imaging Apps?

March 16, 2011

Apple’s iPad holds a lot of promise for use by radiologists. Weighing in at 1.5 pounds with a 10-hour battery life, the touch-screen device offers mobile access to images and other patient data. The larger display even accommodates higher resolution images.

But some are still concerned about data security and theft or loss of the device. And there are some regulatory issues still up in the air as the FDA determines which apps should require approval.

The iPad might not be a replacement for the PC workstation, but the tool does seem to meet the needs for mobility and remote access to data.

What do you think? Vote here and tell us in the comments how you use (or why you’re passing on) the iPad.
