Yes, it could be used with the iPod (Apple platform) and enables image transfer between Macs (multimodality, multi-D capable). It supports video conferencing too through iChat instant messaging, but displays the screen at the receiving end instead. The inventors had multiple presentations this year at the RSNA. It uses standard high speed technology implemented in operating hardware of videogame equipment capable of 2D and 3D rendering. Great teleradiology tool too.

Hey Dr. Potter (and All),
I don't have any experience with this program, not being a Mac user, but I do remember reading an article (over my husband's shoulder) in the RSNA News this month featuring this as a new technology. It was also presented at the RSNA this year. It was developed by two radiologists, an Egyptian doctor (hence the name of the program, which I thought was quite clever - Osiris was the God of Resurrection) at UCLA, and Swiss doctor in Geneva. Apparently, you can use this program to store images on your iPod. The program enables the iPod to automatically recognize and search for medical images, and when it detects the images, they automatically appear on a list, just like music files.

I just recently discovered OsiriX - a free, open source CT and PET
viewing software for Macintosh users. It is very sophisticated and
quite easy to use. I have imported some NewTom axial images into it and
it worked quite well. Has anyone else used this software - willing to
share your experiences? If you are a mac user and are not familiar with
this software, check it out.
