Medgadget is proud to announce the launch of our companion site, an echocardiography video sharing community called EchoJournal. It is a video site, designed to present transthoracic and transesophageal loops for discussion and storage. EchoJournal combines many of the features familiar to users of other video sharing sites, including easy uploading, comments and discussions, and the ability to create communities for your academic department, professional group, or school. The site will be curated by David E. Winchester, MD, a Cardiology Fellow at the University of Florida, who has already uploaded tons of interesting cases, and is ready for many more.
Here’s a list of selected additional features:
There are channels of the site focused towards whatever your interest or level of education might be, from students to practicing physicians, and sections for unique or unknown cases. Follow your friends and the videos they upload. Share your videos or keep them private and invite only. Automatic looping makes discussion with others easy. Download videos or link directly to the video for you website or for your next presentation. Create your own profile Rate other videos and discuss unknown cases We offer a number of languages for upload and discussions The site is absolutely free to use.
We hope you’ll enjoy EchoJournal. If you are a clinician interested in echocardiography, join us and get started uploading your videos and discussing cases.
