At Radiopaedia.org we are striving to improve the site and to keep developing features which you, the heart and soul of this project, have requested.
Current feature projects
Multi-study case structure
Already partially implemented, we now support a case structure which accommodates multiple studies. This allows cases to be presented in the order in which the studies were obtained, and lends itself to explaining case in a way that mimic real life. An example is this case of a Pancoast tumour.
As well as improve on the existing implementation, we plan to add a number of key features, including:
- ability to add questions and answers (including MCQ) between studies
- ability to add additional text between studies
- ability to add a pathology section (including support for macroscopic and microscopic images)
Improved quiz mode
The multi-study cases form an excellent basis for a new and improved quiz modes, which will not only present the studies one at a time, but also present the intervening questions and answers, allowing community members to self assess.
This is a big task, with a complete overhaul of the quiz mode design.
Mobile app redesign
We are in the process of completely redesigning our iOS app (for iPhone, iPad, iTouch) as well as bringing out a version for Android OS. We hope to have both out by the end of the year... stay tuned for more.
Future (planned) features
We have been talking about these for ever, and we have done most of the ground work. The idea is that each user can create multiple playlists of cases, each containing any number of their own or other users cases, to be used as tutorials, self testing or just as a way of organising interesting cases. These will then be able to be viewed sequentially in quiz mode.
An example would be, 20 chest x-rays aimed at medical students, or 15 posterior fossa masses.
Case of the day
We really want to improve our case of the day. It should be presented in quiz mode, and we want to devote a whole section of the site to it. This will allow an archive of previous cases, as well as better recognition for contributors.
New home page
Our home page could do with a revamp.
How you can help
To develop all of these features we need your support, and the support of our sponsors. Please tell your product representatives and anyone who will listen about us (more ways to help us here).
We believe we are doing something really worthwhile; something worth supporting. Not only that, but we offer our sponsors exposure to an amazing audience of engaged, community minded, techno-savy professionals : you!
