The introduction of improved playlists earlier this year has been a superb advancement in functionality and user experience. Be it for organising ones own cases, sharing with friends and colleagues, or teaching at institutional or national meetings.
At present playlists are neither searchable or indexed, but contributors will often notice that over time some of their cases have been included in other users' playlists. When viewing a case which is included in a playlist, you can navigate to that playlist. From there you may explore new cases and from them additional playlists, opening up a kaleidoscope of educational merriment.
It provides a proud individual moment, as well as a sense of satisfaction, when others are not only appreciating, but also in many cases using your cases to educate others across the globe.
Below are a selection of some of the awesome playlists that are emerging.
Playlists from our courses
Chest module from our Trauma course
This is one of the playlists that was used for the recent Radiopaedia.org trauma course by managing editor Andrew Dixon. view here
Each case is attributed clearly, so that everyone can see your contribution. Even better, all contributors whose cases are included in these courses are given complimentary access to the whole online course.
ANZSNR Neuroradiology series
Alternatively it may feature in national meeting presentations like the ANZSNR Neuroradiology series curated by Radiopaedia.org founder Frank Galliard. view here
CT brain for Emergency Physicians
Playlists can be very personal or very public. They may be long or succinct. The topic may be broad and targeted at the clinician community like this tidy playlist on CT Head for Emergency Physicians. view here
On the other hand they may be immensely focussed, such as the list created to aid the radiopaedia.org team in the production of a collaborative poster for the 2014 RANZCR meeting entitled, "Wrong place, wrong time: Imaging and embryological features of congenital renal anomalies". view here
Playlists can also be dynamic, changing on a day to day basis, like some of my own collections for individual departments in my own little hospital (RIPAS) in Brunei. view here
Finally in keeping with the spirit of both participation and educational contribution a plethora of playlists are out there to help others in exam preparation. This includes some superb sets from managing editor Jeremy Jones, like this pot pouri of paediatric MSK cases for the UK Royal College of Radiologists FRCR 2B examination. view here
Explore, enjoy, share and educate.
