Abstract

We have built our original intranet web application network for radiology education: RadXOOPS using open source content management system (CMS), and mobile clients such as wireless game players, personal digital assistants, laptop personal computers We installed some modules of CMS including RSNA MIRC exportable teaching flies, Wiki for radiologists, and XoopsHP e-learning module. In this paper, we evaluate the educational feasibility of our web-based education system and discuss the novel communication methodology of medical education in diagnostic radiology using open source CMS. We conclude that our next generation web-based application system had advantages of attractive merits, time-saving and, low costs, compared with conventional paper-based education system of diagnostic radiology.
