Top iPad App Recommendations

I often get asked what apps are most useful for the iPad. So, I’ve decided to post a list here. Without further introduction, here’s the list (in no particular order):

EDIT: I’m pressed for time right now, but I’ll add a link and summary for each later.

Medical

Pediatric Radiology

These are the slides that go along with a talk I gave recently on pediatric radiology. Included are some statistics on imaging, revision of guidelines for pediatric patients, a dosing table for procedures in mGy and six clinical cases including aortic coarctation, copper beaten skull, osteogenesis imperfecta, cystic fibrosis, Tetralogy of Fallot and Aicardi syndrome.

This presentation is available for download via Slideshare should you wish to reuse materials contained within.

Psychiatric Neuroimaging

These are the slides that go along with a talk I gave recently on psychiatric neuroimaging. It will probably be most interesting to medicine people since it requires some understanding of the brain’s function and neuroanatomy but I think it’s at the level where most anyone could get something out of it.

This presentation talks about why neuroimaging is important, diagnosis of mental illness, DSM-V v. DSM-IV TR and applications of neuroimaging to schizotypal personality disorder, schizophrenia, PTSD and bipolar disorder.

Anyway, if this is your thing – enjoy!

CT Imaging in Pregnancy

These are the slides that go along with a talk I gave recently on CT imaging in pregnancy. Specifically, the agenda for the talk is:

  • Provide a background on radiation and the effects of radiation exposure
  • Discuss the appropriate use of CT imaging in pregnancy
  • Clinical scenarios

In this presentation, a background on radiation is given and indications for CT and clinical scenarios are discussed. Each slide provides journal references and helps weave the topic into a story that is both interesting and informative.

Presentation material taken from journals with overall theme based on lecture by Elliot K. Fishman, MD.
