As your Internet needs change, so our Internet presence responds

October 1, 2007

It's no secret that the Internet is playing a larger role in the lives of all radiologists. The Internet is now a key research and communications tool. Every day, someone dreams up another way it can be used to streamline and improve the practice of radiology.

It's no secret that the Internet is playing a larger role in the lives of all radiologists. The Internet is now a key research and communications tool. Every day, someone dreams up another way it can be used to streamline and improve the practice of radiology.

Although we remain largely a print publication, we've noted many of these trends and have responded accordingly. Increasingly, we find that readers and sponsors want custom editorial products on the web, and we are happy to oblige. We've had three successful web conference reports this year (ECR, ISMRM, SIIM) and are now planning a fourth (RSNA). We've also developed unique content sites devoted to PACS and informatics, cardiovascular imaging, ultrasound, and CT.

More such sites are being developed. These offer an ideal way to help members of our community seek out targeted information. They also allow us to go deeper into a subject to a level not always possible in other settings and to reach out to members of the medical imaging community with information via our e-mail newsletters.

As part of this effort, we've redesigned our website. The site is brighter, more attractive, and more logically organized than before. All these characteristics will become more important as we add more features.

It's been more than a decade since we first launched our Internet presence. That presence continues to evolve just as your need for information does.
