Articles form the encyclopaedic component of Radiopaedia.org and are collaborative efforts to create atomic reference articles for anything related to the practice of radiology. Unlike a textbook, journal publication or a written encyclopaedia, Radiopaedia.org articles allow you and other users to expand, modify and update content as time passes. Thus, over time, our articles and content get better and better.
Articles can act as a basic reporting workstation reference or as a leading point to other published journal articles or textbooks as well as selected submitted cases on that topic (through its linked reference list at the bottom or attached case list on the right)
Articles in essence are collaborative works and are about a particular topic, for example; meningioma, lung cancer staging or internal carotid artery. An article doesn't just have a title and content, it needs to have references and attributes that define what it is related to and where is should be listed.
Where a term may relate to multiple articles an article for each instance is required, e.g. the lingula is an anatomical term that refer to a mandibular and pulmonary structure. For more information, see disambiguation.
