This is a report of activities of Wiki Project Med Foundation for 2022. It is not a complete list of everything we have done this year but represents a highlight of our work. The compiling of this report — like much that we do — has been a group effort, and we encourage involvement by further individuals within the wider membership.

Projects and activities


NC Commons

CropTool up and running. We have also introduced a multi CropTool, which is especially useful when working with CT and MRI image sets. Our CT viewing efforts can been seen at [[Mesenteric_ischemia#Diagnosis|mesenteric ischemia].

We have added tools to stream line the moving of images from MDWiki to NC Commons.


MDWiki forms the basis of our offline EN app, build in collaboration with Kiwix as of January of 2022. This app has seen more than 100,000 downloads, mostly from low and middle income countries, many of who are health care providers or students. This change allows us to be responsive to requests for improvements from our app users.
