An iPod Touch is just what the doctor ordered.

Soon the high-tech multi-media devices will be standard equipment for Ohio State University med students.

The docs-to-be will use the iPods to watch videos of treatments and view medical images.

Third-year medical student Justin Harper came up with idea.

The university says within two years every Ohio State med student will have an iPod loaded with special medical software.
