A recently published paper from the department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Emory University Atlanta GA, USA describes the rapid advances in mobile computing technology and their potential to change the way radiology and medicine as a whole are practiced. Several mobile computing advances have not yet found application to the practice of radiology, while others have already been applied to radiology but are not in widespread clinical use. The review addresses several areas where radiology and medicine in general may benefit from adoption of the latest mobile computing technologies and speculates on potential future applications.
