BRIT Systems Continues to Power
Applied Radiology's Clinical Quiz DICOM Viewer

DALLAS, TX, and CHICAGO, IL, December 1, 2013 - BRIT Systems is continuing its partnership with Applied Radiology to provide its WebWorks browser-based viewer to readers who take the publication's online clinical quiz in a DICOM viewer. BRIT and Applied Radiology first launched the zero-footprint DICOM viewer in November, 2010, and in 2012 included BRIT's new capabilities for the WebWorks mobile device compatible viewer.

Applied Radiology uses BRIT's DICOM WebWorks viewer exclusively on its clinical quizzes when DICOM files are provided by the clinician submitting the quiz. Readers then have the option to view the quiz in the WebWorks DICOM viewer with full functionality. The Applied Radiology clinical quiz reaches 30,000 readers each week, with an average of 20% participating and interacting with the DICOM viewer.

"Providing a DICOM viewer with the clinical quizzes gives our readers an opportunity to interact with the images just as they would sitting at their workstation reading studies," says Kieran Anderson, Publisher of Applied Radiology. "Our readers who take the quiz use it on a consistent basis, and it is our belief that this further enhances the educational value they receive when participating in them."

WebWorks is 100% browser-based and uses pure HTML and Javascript and with no plug-in. It has all the features of a dedicated workstation at the click of a button, including window level, pan/zoom, rotate, measurement tools, automatic linking by body position and more.

"By partnering with Applied Radiology, we are providing the tools that radiologists use in their daily practice as they expand and test their education and knowledge through these quizzes," says Yassin Sallam, National Sales Manager."Applied Radiology is an important industry publication dedicated to furthering radiology education, and we are pleased to offer the customization required to support these efforts."
