i-CAT Vision

If you are unfamilar with i-CAT Vision, here are a couple of screen shots from it. You can download it at: Get it and start playing around with it. It is very cool and it's free! There is a new version in the works that should be available soon. In the mean time, there's lots to do with the current version.

One of the best things is that with i-CAT Vision, the doctor can review the full volume in axial, sagittal and coronal views. In my opinion, by giving the refering doctor all the data PLUS the viewing software, I am off the hook if anything comes up later that could have been discovered in the initial review of the scan. The doctor has all the data and a means to view it. That would seem to take me out of the loop. (whew!)

Any comments?

I too just started downloading the iCAT vision and giving it to my docs. The response has been tremendous. I am going to survey these referrals to find out if they are opening up this software. I have a number of "young" dentists who are computer savey and want me to just email these files. Anyone out there doing this?

You could email it but it would be very large and I believe you would have to compress it (which might make it a little smaller). PLUS, emailing it may create some problems with HIPAA. You would need to check into that. "Anywhere Dolpin" would probably be a good choice. Personally, I would just put it on a CD and mail it. In most cases they's get it the next day.
