capturing and archinving surgical videos.

Hi to all. Am an eye surgeon. I currently have pinnacle to grab and archive all my surgery videos. The biggest problem with archiving part is that I can't tag them with details like patients name, diagnosis or the procedure being performed. This makes the retrieval very difficult. I have to go through each and every video to discover what I am looking for.
Any suggestions as to any other software that would help in effectively classifying the videos and archiving it for easier retrieval.

I have a buddy in the VA Hospital system.

Such are in central filing with the media in the patient's files. They used the usual cameras of the day and off to tape if need be. The space of said filing area is some number of football fields and may be larger today.

Back to your issue. Why not put each in it's own patient directory with some text file that contains your notes. Then you search for the notes (both Apple and Windows machines can do that) and the video is in that directory.

that's a good suggestion to tag each patients video file to his case report and then stock it with a small note. but the problem is that i cant search off my archived files with particular parameters like specific disease types. patients within a particular age group etc etc..... some prog which could help me to search with tags like these will come in handy. Thanks again. if any suggestions please let know.

Actually I may have a solution.

You are talking about a database. While I bet I could make do with windows search and other methods your solution is best tackled with a database. I think the small text file if done proper and you put in the right keywords it could do the job if you get picky then you are forced to use a database program.

I apologize in advance since I've been working on databases since dBASE ][ (two) and even before that. Today I use MySQL a lot since I can implement solutions on Linux, Windows, Apple and more without any cost. Then I can query it directly or with other software. Sorry if that's too tech but by this time you must have some database you use, even if it's a patient directory.
