OBJECTIVE. We developed an easy-to-use method for creating a searchable digital teaching file of CT and MR images. CONCLUSION. We describe a method of creating a digital archive of interesting cases that is easy to implement and works on a commercially available workstation. A remote daemon polls for images transferred to the product film tool. It creates a tagged image file format (TIFF) digital archive of these images on any platform supporting file transfer protocol (FTP), operates in the background, and automatically generates a searchable index of case information in the database.
