MAY 24'The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences today announced a database-driven online teaching program called MedPix. Defense Department medical personnel can study radiology and dermatology 'cases of the week' on the university's Web site, at rad.usuhs.mil/synapse/radpix.html#top. Pathology cases of the week will be posted later this summer.

The radiology and anatomy teaching materials currently available on the site are the same ones used in USUHS' own continuing medical education, resident education, graduate nursing and medical teaching courses.

USUHS is looking for additional contributions to the MedPix library. Each contributor whose case is accepted for Web publication will receive a free copy of Super Arrows, the USUHS image manipulation and labeling program. Contact radiology professor James G. Smirniotopoulos at 301-295-3145 or 301-295-9811.
