Introduction to AuntMinnie.com

AuntMinnie.com is a medical imaging site with multiple resources. These include up-to-date news and information, opportunities to connect with other professionals, consultation on difficult cases, research initiatives, a bookstore and education opportunities leading to radiology CME credits.

Overview

What is an Aunt Minnie? When the term Aunt Minnie was coined, most people believe that it was first used by Dr. Ben Felson in the 1940s referring to "a case with radio logic findings specific and compelling that no realistic differential diagnosis exists." So, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck or if it looks like your Aunt Minnie, sounds like your Aunt Minnie, it’s your Aunt Minnie. In 1999, Dr Phillip Berman felt that the name perfectly fitted the radiology website he was developing. His site went online later that year, becoming a popular resource. AuntMinnie.com gains popularity As the first site for medical imaging specialists, AuntMinnie.com soon became the “go to” site to meet other professionals in radiology related fields, form collaborations for clinical, educational and research purposes, and consult on difficult cases. The Internet had made this easy to accomplish with previously unknown speed.

Second generation advances

Site adds personnel As the site grew, additional staff were added who were responsible for oversight and development initiatives. New staff consisted of executives, editors and software engineers with
experience in the medical imaging industry hired to keep the site up-to-date. They also maintain a professional appearance, add new features related to Internet and other technology advances, and make sure that the site was run according to the guidelines governing it. Additional site improvements The site now provides the most up-to-date news and information on medical imaging. Currently, the site includes opportunities for education such as seminars and web courses. It also includes radiology continuing medical education necessary to obtain CME credits, a career center, conference announcements and access to other links which provide numerous resources, forums, and communities. Features of the site One of the most popular features of the site is the extensive online bookstore which permits books searches using 3 indices. Books can be identified based on searching more than 19 specialty areas, 9 technology (procedural) areas, or 3 types (Atlases, CD-Roms, Teaching Files). The bookstore also provides access to market reports, including benchmark reports for 2007 – 2010 which alternate specialty departments compared each year (e.g. mammography, ct imaging, radiation therapy). The organisation has published one benchmark report for 2011 on CT Imaging departments. The bookstore also provides discounted prices on medical text books discussing the medical imaging field. Since 1999, AuntMinnie.com has become the most widely accessed site which includes information on medical imaging or related fields.
