A very promising Internet / Desktop application named DICOR (Diagnostic Image Collaborative Review), has been facilitating the doctors work, and saving lives.

By providing EKG, and X-Ray images of patients being helped in rural and remote sites around the country, main city based specialists can now arrive to earlier and more accurate diagnostics in different illnesses. Doctors can view images and comment at the same time, using a plain web browser. Doctor Nicolas Jaramillo, a renown cardiologist at Las Americas Hospital in Colombia, said that this approach will save lives, making specialized medical services available to otherwise poorly covered communities.

The first two hours after the onset of an acute coronary event are crucial. Many patients die in the world every year due to misdiagnosis. Some of them die while under observation. The only real difference in choosing the right medical conduct could be the chance to see an actual EKG stripe. Otherwise, the symptoms of an acute myocardial infarction can be mistaken for a digestive reflux or pain in the stomach area. Hiatal hernias and some severe cases of gastritis produce similar symptoms. Some patients mistake the pain, get nervous and start hiperventilating. The condition looks like a heart attack to the uneducated eyes.

We had the chance to see the software in action and were amazed with the results, while visiting Las Americas Hospital, an elegant facility that incidentally receives international patients. A call for help was received from a young doctor, from a small clinic in the countryside, 1 1/2 hours away from Medellin city.

The cardiologist on duty requested the EKG reading, as the rest of the symptoms. A decision was made in a matter of minutes. The patient was transported promptly, taken to a high end health facility and another life was saved.

We doctors know that an image can make a great difference in making decisions, specially in life or death situations.
