If you’re ever waiting for a radiology exam and it seems that it’s taking for ever to get to your turn … All of a sudden you see a radiologist walking-by with a Wii remote (Wiimote), you might be thinking: W*%!!! But it’s not what you think it is … They are doing work and not playing!! At least that’s the hope 🙂

“At the 2009 American Roentgen Ray Society Annual Meeting in Boston this week, clinical researchers from the New-York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center are presenting findings from a study showing that using the Nintendo Wii gyroscopic remote can be a viable option for modern radiologists.” – Michael,

Yup, you heard it … These Wiimote can help radiologists mainpulate images from CT scans on the screen for example. If anyone says that video games are a horrible invention, think again!
