Tags on Radiopaedia.org allow authors to specify a little more about what the article is about and allows articles to be more completely related to articles that are similar.

Additionally, there are a number of 'official tags'. 

  • articles
    • cases: [articles only] 
      • cases needed to illustrate article
      • this adds the 'cases needed' info box in right-hand column
      • add the cases tag if the article could benefit from the addition of additional imaging example(s)
      • as a rough guide, removal of the cases tag may be appropriate for articles with:
        • longer articles/important conditions: four or more cases  
        • shorter articles/rarer conditions: two or more cases
    • duplicate: there is another article covering the same topic - these need to be merged and incoming links checked
    • refs: [articles only] references needed to complete article
    • stub: [articles only] article is a stub, adds the stub transclusion
    • snippet: the article needs to be added to the "Related Radiopaedia articles" snippet
  • cases
    • basic:
      • a case is most suitable/relevant to medical students, interns and junior residents (e.g. PGY1-2)
      • cases are of important/common conditions with typical appearances
    • intermediate: (e.g. PGY3-4)
    • advanced
      • a case is suitable / relevant to senior radiology registrars / residents (PGY4-5) / fellows and consultants/attendings
      • cases are of rare/uncommon conditions or demonstrate atypical appearances
    • poor quality images: the case includes images that are of poor quality
    • stack-it: case contains multiple sequential cross-sectional images which should be in a stack
    • legacy: a case that has educational value but does not meet current case publishing guidelines
