Medical Imaging Resource Center (MIRC) for veterinary medicine: A digital image teaching file

Abstract

Rationale for the study - Veterinary radiology has a need for software to facilitate the creation of digital image teaching files. The Medical Imaging Resource Center (MIRC) is widely used in medicine to create teaching cases and store data from clinical trials. This open-source software was identified as a solution for use in veterinary medicine. Methodology - The additional fields needed to adapt the system for veterinary use were identified as sex, species, and breed. Breed and species codes from the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and from the Standard Nomenclature of Veterinary Diseases and Operations (SNVDO) were gathered and correlated. Results - The sex fields added were male, male neutered, female, and female neutered. The breed and species codes were combined into a single term. These were coded in extensible Markup Language (XML) and added to the software's veterinary document template and search capabilities. Conclusions - MIRC was successfully adapted for use in creating digital teaching files for veterinary medicine.
