This app is the successor to the successful series of Radiopaedia.org radiology teaching files that have been available through the iTunes app store for a number of years.

After many months of development we launched our highly anticipated new iOS app for the iPhone and iPad in May 2012. Among the app’s best new features is the ability to view hundreds of cases in quiz mode and then attempt to identify and interpret abnormalities. Each case has a number of questions and explanatory text with reference articles for further study.
“This new app will act as a platform for our users to access hundreds of cases gathered from across the globe,” said Radiopaedia.org founder Associate Professor Frank Gaillard, “and will allow them to view them in an intuitive way, similar to how cases are encountered both in everyday practice and in exams.”
But getting the app just right wasn’t easy. “Our goal was not only to show our extensive content on a new generation of devices, but to do so in a way that honours our tradition of presenting radiology cases in the most beautiful and intuitive way possible,” Dr Gaillard said. Since physicians and students are accustomed to large screens for viewing cases, mobile devices presented a unique challenge. To solve these, the app introduces an intuitive navigation technique which allows users to easily scroll through stacks of images, zoom in and out and access related questions, answers and reference material.
Although all of Radiopaedia.org’s content is available online for free, some of the content for this will need to be purchased within the app. “Our aim has always been to make all our content available online to the largest possible audience completely free, however we too have bills to pay.” Dr Gaillard went on to say “The revenue from this app, will go a long way towards making sure we continue to be able to do so, whilst offering mobile users some of the best content available at a fraction of the cost of traditional textbooks.”
Radiopaedia, in addition to revenue from apps, is able to make its comprehensive resource available for free by including advertising sourced from UBM Medica. This is in contrast to some similar resources which charge individuals and organisations thousands of dollars per year to access their content.
