My Research

Database Applications in Medicine

Dr. Sanger has been extremely active in the development of computer systems for the support of medical applications for over 25 years. His early primary effort had been directed towards the development and implementation of a Macintosh-based computer software system to afford Nuclear Medicine practioners and Cardiologists the ability to rapidly and precisely generate diagnostic reports. Conceived of during his radiology residency in 1977, this system has resulted in a reduction of turnaround time from days to minutes. At its peak, it was deployed in over 40 medical centers and diagnostic imaging centers world-wide.

His recent efforts have been channeled into the development and implementation of various web-based software applications to improve the efficiency and work-flow in the School of Medicine and in the Department of Radiology.
