Abstract

Clinicians experience various situations, such as peer consultation or tumor boards, in which they need to access and view radiologic studies without a full radiologic workstation. Mobile MIM is a diagnostic medical imaging device on the Apple App Store that is FDA-approved and can meet the portable needs of clinicians. The goal of the app is to give physicians the opportunity to visualize scans from multiple modalities on a single iOS mobile device. The intended uses include reviewing complex aspects of radiation treatment plans and analyzing medical images from a wide array of modalities. The key limitation is incompatibility for mammography. The free app allows users to manipulate image sets from ten sample patients before an organization can commit to extensive systems integration with MIMcloud 2.0 to store, encrypt, and route image sets for real-time patients. This review explores the app's strengths and weaknesses through discussion of its features and usability.
