Role of the Radiopaedia.org community

All registered users are free, and in fact are encouraged, to edit and contribute content to the site as a whole. Furthermore, the community has a say in the direction Radiopaedia.org takes insofar as the structure of the content, as well as suggesting which features would be most beneficial.


As far as content structure is concerned, we are not a democracy, but rather a meritocracy, with decisions ultimately residing with the editorial staff. This means:

  • it is worth investing your time to become the best person to make certain decisions

'Best' in this scenario can be thought of as a combination of expertise in the relevant field and an understanding of Radiopaedia.org content and aims, as well as a track record of consistently excellent contributions.
