Orthopaedics is a very
visual subject. We rely heavily on Xrays, scans, anatomy drawings, diagrams, and clinical
photographs. It's actually quite difficult to communicate about an orthopaedic subject
without using images. Whereas verbal communication over the Internet simply requires
typing or using a voice recognition program, sending images is a little more complicated.
The image that you hold in your hand, be it radiograph, photograph or line drawing, must
be transformed into a computer file before it can be viewed on the computer. Once this is
done it is easy enough to send an image as an attached file
with email or post it on a page.
