Aortic re-gurgitation

One way to present the actual CATS on the website is to give each an index page like this one. The page will include a link to the CAT itself (opens in a new window), with discussion below.

If we take this approach we still need a CATbank content management system. But we can use a wiki (like jotspot) to do that.

We also need a search engine. We can use the NHS Google Search Appliance to do that.
