Spanish sarcoma expert group COTMES has recently launched its new Website incorporating an innovative Web 2.0 tool for medical image exchange.

COTMES has incorporated MEDTING Enterprise in order to build a powerful Web-based clinical image management platform integrated in the group’s Web site.

With MEDTING every doctor of the committee is able to upload large volumes of clinical images and cases in an automated way. The solution uses MIO (Medical Images Organizer), which automates the capture and upload of images generated by any medical imaging device (including MRI, CT scanners, digital cameras, etc).

The MEDTING Enterprise platform integrated into COTMES website allows doctors to maintain constant communication facilitating the exchange of the clinical cases to be reviewed every week. The system has also opens the possibility to easily share videos and provide second-opinion services to hospitals throughout Spain and beyond.
