Explanation (multiple choice questions)

The explanation section of multiple choice questions is shown once an alternative is selected and submitted. Although it is an optional section when creating questions, it is highly recommended that most questions have an explanation. It is an opportunity not only to explain why the correct answer is correct and in some ways more importantly, why the distractors are incorrect. 

The text can include links to Radiopaedia articles; note, that adding links to explanation does not automatically populate the related articles, which need to be entered separately. 

The explanation is also the correct place to attributing an image (if present): see image preparation for further details.
