The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the clinical feasibility and discuss the novel communication methodology among doctors using Wiki content management system (CMS). The hardware consists of a mobile wireless Linux PC and wireless client devices (PCs and PDAs). Wiki CMS is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit webpage content using a simple markup language with any web browser. We completed some Wiki plugins for DICOM viewer and teaching files. Radiologists can easily author and edit their own Wiki webpages, DICOM images, and thumbnail images with suitable layout using accessible client devices. The length of source scripts for Wiki web page is shorter than that of HTML scripts and a Wiki editable source document is easy to master for radiologists. We conclude this CMS is a useful web collaboration tool for education, conference, and research for radiologists.
