Radiopaedia Blog

In the next few days we are going to deploy a complete overhaul of the search page. This has been required not only to make it easier to find the case or article that you are looking for but also in preparation for mobile-friendly responsive design (which is currently being deployed piecemeal in beta). We are also going to be including other content types in search results (e.g. blog posts, courses, user-profiles etc..) which needed a change in layout. 

The main changes you will see on the new search page: 

  1. layout
    1. results will be presented as a single column 
    2. articles have the first few lines of text shown
  2. results 
    1. all result types (currently Articles and Cases) will be mixed together ordered by relevance
    2. modalities included in cases will be visible
    3. diagnostic certainty is made more promient
  3. filtering / sorting
    1. result types can be filtered easily to only show one type of content (e.g. cases only)
    2. all filtering and sorting options currently available will remain
    3. ability to filter cases by modality has been added
    4. filtering and sorting does not require a page re-load so is faster

 

Hope you enjoy these changes.

The trauma article editorial project was an editorial project conducted to link all the relevant articles to the newly created trauma section (here). With the help of Nafisa Shakir Batta, we search all the articles (>9400 articles) and linked more than 300 articles that were relevant to trauma. There are now about 400 trauma articles. Enjoy.

The appendicular skeleton anatomy project was an editorial project conducted to ensure an anatomy article exists for all the bones of the appendicular skeleton. With the help off many contirbutors from all over the world, anatomy articles were written that did not exist, and existing articles were edited. Thanks to all of the contributors for their efforts!

Team lead: Dr Craig Hacking

Team (in no particular order): Drs Shu Su, Rivindi Gunasena, Paul Ng, Juliana Yee, Mostayn Alam, Nafisa Shakir Batta and Dayu Gai.

In the future, we will have all bones covered with individual articles.

The time has come for Radiopaedia.org to become to radiographers what it already is for radiologists: the best online resource available. 

Having returned from ASMMIRT 2016 in Brisbane Australia, and having spoken to many many radiographers, a few things have become obvious. Firstly radiographers have different resource needs to radiologists, but are similarly poorly supported by open access educational material. Secondly although the material that radiographers require is different to that for radiologists, there is much overlap and much to learn from each other. 

It is also clear to me that our existing radiologist contributor and editorial group is not equipped to oversee the creation and moderation of radiographer centered content. We are putting together a group of radiographers from around the world, with input from existing radiologist editorial members, and over the coming months we will be beginning the process of identifying the sort of content we need to create. 

Therefore we reaching out to all radiographers in a call to action: join Radiopaedia.org and help us create the content you need. 

So, how do you start? Simple. Create a login if you don't have one already and become familiar with the site. 

You can already start improving existing radiographer content as well as crafting missing entries in line with our style guide for radiography articles

Over the coming months we will be approaching active radiographer contributors to join our editorial group and help steer Radiopaedia.org for years to come. 

Cheers, Frank

The chest UIP - NSIP project was an editorial team project carried out by Amir Rezaee, Prashant Mudgal and Yuranga Weerakkody during the first half of 2016. It involved cleaning up and refining the existing UIP - NSIP articles, ensuring all linked cases were as accurate and complete as possible. All incomplete links were also completed as possible. All references to the latest freely available journal articles were also updated and linked.
