Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The increasing availability of personal and departmental computers in radiology departments has led to increasing interest in data management. Data base management software must be system compatible, simple, and flexible to insure its acceptance and constant use. Once in place, such a system streamlines the daily documentation of interesting cases for conference, follow-up, research, and quality assurance. The authors have developed such a data base program for tracking computed body tomography cases in their department, which can be run as a portable computer to maximize ease of access and therefore usage.
