Medlantis, a radiology platform recently developed by international medical and science publisher Thieme and the University Health Network of Toronto, was introduced to the European market at the European Congress of Radiology in Vienna. Particularly well received were the educational modules (video lectures linked to relevant e-book content and selected RadCases). Attendees also reportedly liked the comprehensive nature of the site, which contains over 43,000 pages of Thieme book and journal content as well as 86,000 radiologic images.
Over 20,000 attendees from 100 countries had the opportunity to preview Medlantis. Many reportedly commented on the high quality of the videos and the comprehensiveness of Thieme's eRadiology site. Others liked the fact that Medlantis automatically downloads selected images into PowerPoint and a Medlantis site licence includes the right to use the images for non-commercial purposes like presentations and lectures.
Attendees also commented favourably on the ability to write personal notes related to the video lectures and the fact that references are linked to PubMed, giving users a guided tour into the world's scientific literature.
Dr. Kieran Murphy was recently named Editor-in-Chief of Medlantis. Dr. Murphy is Medical Director, UHN International Strategy and Deputy Chief of the Joint Department of Medical Imaging at the University Health Network Toronto. In his new role, he will be responsible for the overall editorial development of Medlantis.
