End user assessment of embeddable SmartDoc volume viewer for medical images

We have undertaken extensive end-user assessments of the volume of visualisation component developed in the Smartdocs project. This component allows interactive 3-D visualisation of medical image data within a standard word-processing document. The application was tested with clinical end-users from ENT surgery and neurosurgery.

The intention is to use this data to publish a scientific paper describing the potential value of embeddable Smartdocs components in radiological reports and electronic patient records. The ability to produce embeddable visualisation components in electronic patient records will also form part of our prior knowledge contributions to future collaborations under our "radiological workstation" research programme. This research programme addresses a wide range of features for the development of advanced radiological workstation is on the dissemination of radiological reports and images. The ability to insert visualisations, which can be actively interrogated within electronic patient reports, is a significant intellectual asset.
