IconoTech is built using 4th dimension (4D), Windows and Macintosh compatible. However, up to now, only the Windows version of IconoTech is available (DICOM functions are not implemented on Macintosh version right now).
Each case contains various text fields:
Images, in various formats (DICOM, BMP, PICT...), are stored independently.
- to classify (subspecialties, medical codes such ACR or MeSH, level of difficulty...),
- to describe (context, studies and images findings, multiple quiz, diagnosis, bibliographic references),
- and to follow (patient name, patient ID, completion status) the teaching files.
A multicriteria query module yields a teaching file list or an image mosaic.
An export function allows to transform a subset of images in various images format (JPEG, GIF, BMP, PICT) or to send complete cases to other servers. An e-mail module is integrated in the software.
