Many people are wondering how to share DICOM images in their own newsletter. I am writing this article to share some basic tips that can help you do just that. This will be useful if you want to start your own website for your organization or if you have a small business and need to share DICOM images on your blog.
Before we get started, let me clear up the misconception about DICOM images. The term does not mean anything to the person viewing the image but it does to your subscribers or readers.
The issue is you cannot “drop anchor” your subscribers in your newsletters with a large DICOM image. For example, if you were running a program to download free DICOM images, then you could visit the website and just drop anchor to your website.
If the web site owner took advantage of this and allowed you to drop anchor without the small icon file, your email would get flagged by the email servers as SPAM email and your link would be deleted. If you are using the small icon file, your readers will think that you are using something like spam to promote their website and they will not even look at your email.
However, if you did allow your readers to visit your website after they got your email, then they would see the small icon file and click on it. This is the key to how to share DICOM images in your newsletter. You will need to make sure that they see it in order to promote your company or business.
So you can see how important it is to place the small icon file on your website and then use other promotional tools to make sure that your readers are aware of your website. You also need to make sure that you advertise your links so that your readers know to visit your website. It’s important to stand out from the crowd.
Another tip that I have heard repeatedly is that you should not include pictures in your newsletters with your DICOM medical image sharing apps. Many people find this counter-productive as well. Some people believe that the DICOM image does not have a real life effect and that the photo is not needed for the viewer to get the point of the content.
Unfortunately, people are getting discouraged from sending emails. You may also be tempted to add a photo, but do not. Instead, use your graphics, but use them only when necessary.
If you are emailing your reader about your new DICOM image and they do not have it already, then you need to send them an email that says something like, “Can you print out this page? Use it at your next office meeting. Or send this to your social network and use it on your Blog. Or see this for your favorite restaurant!”
This will get your message across to the reader who is simply trying to read your small yet tiny image and thinking about your latest promotion. In addition, you will likely be able to tell when they have already printed out this page as they will remember you and will pass it on to others.
You need to be sure that you include a little bit of information with your icon image. If you need to add a little note or image, it needs to be just that and nothing more.
Most email newsletters can be viewed without any graphics. If you want to encourage your readers to visit your website, you need to include your images in your newsletters, but you need to make sure that you use only the small DICOM files.
