OA for radiology Q&A

The Society for Computer Applications in Radiology (SCAR) has converted its SCAR Expert Hotline to open access. Quoting the press release: "This valuable question and answer resource, previously available only to current SCAR members in print format, will now be archived and updated online for access by both members and non-members alike. Searching and viewing the service is free, and provides a wealth of information for professionals who use, or are interested in PACS [Picture Archiving and Communication System] technology and clinical implementation of information systems in imaging." Posting questions will be free for members and cost non-members $125. But reading the Q&A will be free for all.
