Medical specialists and radiologists are using mobile devices to share and exchange medical information and images with other healthcare professionals. Usually, they need advice regarding a diagnosis or treatment, sometimes in an acute setting. Mobile devices with viewing apps and messaging services such as WhatsApp are frequently used for such purpose. Transmission of patient data by viewing apps or messaging services, however, does have several risks and limitations, mostly related to the security and privacy of patients, but also from an ethical and legal point of view. Some questions need to be answered: is this type of communication accurate for diagnosis, is it secure and legally allowed? What regulations or guidelines are available and what legislation is applicable? What secure options are available? In this scientific focus session these issues will be discussed in more depth.
