Modality, Inc. today announced the release of four new content sets from Elsevier for use in the modalityBODY App for iPad. Netter’s Advanced Head and Neck Flash Cards, Netter’s Anatomy Flash Cards, Netter’s Concise Radiologic Anatomy, and Netter’s Musculoskeletal Flash Cards are now available for In App Purchase via the modalityBODY App.
The modalityBODY App allows users to view, organize, annotate, search and store thousands of medical images and create custom image collections for study and reference. The store within the app offers a variety of world-class anatomical and medical imaging atlases and flash cards, all with native iPad image quality. Users may combine these collections with their own images to create a robust library of anatomical reference material. Custom structure labels and annotations may be added to any image, and a powerful visual cross-referencing index is maintained for all structures across all volumes in the app.
"Elsevier's partnership with Modality brought our Netter's anatomy product line to the App Store on Day 1. We are thrilled to now have this content as part of a native iPad app that showcases the Netter catalog as it's never been seen on a mobile device," said Randy Charles, managing director, Global Clinical Reference for Elsevier. "The brilliant display and innovative Multi-Touch user interface enables our student and professional audience to explore structural details, share accurate anatomical imagery with patients, and customize these content sets to speed their study and workflow."
