Medlantis a big hit at 2013 European Congress of Radiology (ECR) / Kieran Murphy named Medlantis Editor-in-Chief

New York, NY, March 29, 2013 --( Medlantis, a powerful radiology platform recently developed by Thieme and the University Health Network of Toronto, was introduced to the European market at the European Congress of Radiology in Vienna, Austria. Particularly well received were the educational modules (video lectures linked to relevant e-book content and selected RadCases). Attendees also 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 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 license includes the right to use the images for non-commercial purposes like presentations and lectures. Attendees also commented favorably 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.
