I'm usually fairly organised, but last week I only found out I was meant to be showing cases at the departmental meeting 25 minutes before its start. Fortunately, there's this little website called Radiopaedia.org. :)
I logged in and went to the recent edits page and filtered it for new cases. Every week there are around 100 new cases uploaded, moderated and approved, so I only needed to look through a week or two to find a collection of brand new awesome cases of varying levels – something for everyone.
All I had to do was log into my Radiopaedia.org account, go to the playlist (from my profile dropdown - top right of the page) and click 'play' so that the cases are presented in presentation mode which is great for teaching.
Because I am a Radiopaedia Roentgen Supporter no ads are shown when I'm logged in, which is best for teaching and makes the page load quite a bit faster.
At the end of the meeting, I shared (just click the 'share' button top right of playlist pages) an unguessable link to the playlist with the whole department so that those who wanted to look at the cases again or those who weren't able to attend wouldn't miss out.
And now I can share that same playlist (now public) with the rest of the world and thank all the contributors who upload awesome cases!
