With its 2010 release, "Radiology 2.0: One Night in the ED," became the first radiology teaching file to simulate reading scans at a PACS workstation. The fourth installment has now arrived.
Volume 2. Head CTs:
The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce you to the most common basic pathologies seen on a head CT scan: stroke, mass, and bleed. After viewing these 63 cases you will have seen multiple examples of each entity and should be familiar with the varied appearance of each.
Each case is presented as a complete CT scan that you can scroll through as if at a PACS workstation. Each exam is discussed in an interactive format. Important findings are highlighted with arrows, circles, and colorful schematics. Multiple examples of each type of pathology are presented so you can learn by repetition. Varied appearances of similar diagnoses are included. The first case in each section has a comprehensive description of the featured disorder. Subsequent cases utilize shorter descriptions and focus on the pertinent findings.
Entire cases are presented as scrollable stacks. Extensive, interactive discussions accompany each case and include labeled images that highlight pathologies and relevant findings. Rather than use static images to teach specific diagnoses, Radiology 2.0 uses stacks of images to actually teach the reader how to approach and interpret scans.
The interface incorporates image zoom and pan. In addition, both portrait and landscape orientations are supported.
This intuitive teaching file series is designed for both junior radiology residents and senior medical students. All content is contained within the app for offline viewing. You can now learn radiology on-the-go and in the palm of your hand, even with a few minutes of spare time throughout the day. It is completely free and provided as a resource for medical education. No in app purchases. No subscription fees.
