To present five applications for Android smartphones,
designed to promote and facilitate the use of scientific guidelines in daily radiological practice: - Fleischner society guidelines for follow-up management of solid and subsolid nodules of incidental finding on thoracic CT scans : Fig. 1 - RECIST 1.1 guidelines for the follow-up of solid tumors : Fig. 2 - Bosniak classificationfor renal cysts and management recommandations for renal solid and cystic masses : Fig. 3 - ESUR PI-RADS scoring...
Smartphones and tablets,a growing part of which is now using Android OS,have developed considerably in thelast decade. Daily practice of radiology is based on a growing amount of information (scoring systems,
classifications...). Access and accurate memorization of this information can be difficult. Mobileapplications may beused as assisting tools and work asan"ectopic brain" in daily practice of radiology,
in order to provide a simple and immediate access toa precise,

Fleischnersociety guidelines : "Pulmonary Nodule Fleischner". a.
Context: Fleischner society guidelines provide management recommandations for small pulmonary nodules of incidental finding on thoracic CT. These recommandations were published in 2005 (solid nodules) and 2013 (sub-solid : part solid and ground glass nodules). However,
studies have reported an under-use of theserecommandations resulting in inadequate follow-up of patients,
potentially leading to increased morbidity (lung...
Mobileapplications are useful and simple assisting tools,
working as an "ectopic brain" for radiologists indaily practice. These five applications,
available for free on Google Play,
are designed to promote and facilitate the use of recommandations in daily radiological practice,
to provide efficiency gains to radiologists,
and to improve the overall accuracy of reports. Download link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Louis+Lassalle
