Open Source Medical Record

When we get sick, we want to get the best medical treatment possible, specially when our case is a difficult one. This is what Salvatore Iaconesi did. He release his medical files in the internet in the hope to get more and better advice about his brain tumor. Furthermore  he cracked the medical files and converted to open formats so that everyone could use them. He had surgery this month and he is at the moment fine.

Is this the beginning of something new in medical imaging?
