Operation Honey Badger

A little while back we added diagnostic certainty to our cases, so that you could more easily filter for cases that had an established diagnosis; we really want to ensure that Radiopaedia.org grows not only in size but also quality. 

We had a little problem; we had over 20,000 existing cases that did not have a diagnostic certainty established. But that's ok, because we have an amazingly dedicated editorial team

So we started Operation Honey Badger in honor of this famous internet video meme and got cracking, not only adding diagnostic certainty, but generally improving cases, and removing those that were no longer of sufficiently high standard (see our current case publishing guidelines).

There has been stiff competition for the coveted title of overall honey badger (editor who has reviewed the most cases). 

Overall Honey Badger was Tim Luijkx with over 4,100 cases reviewed! Congratulations. 

Everyone pitched in, with many editors devoting many many many hours to the project. The result is that now (almost) all our cases have a diagnostic certainty. A huge step forward. 

Thank you all.
