Radiopaedia.org and the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR)  are again collaborating on giving you all the opportunity to submit an adult brain case to ASNR 2020 Case of the Day. 

Each day during the  ASNR 58th Annual Meeting (May 30-June 4) in Las Vegas, NV, USA a case will be shown as the official Case of the Day. This has traditionally been 'invite-only', but just like last year, this year one of the cases will be chosen from cases you submit to Radiopaedia.org. 

In addition to one ASNR 2020 case of the day winner, we will also be showcasing a number of the best submissions as our very own Radiopaedia.org 'cases of the day' on our home page and through social media. And, even better, you will be contributing to your personal case library and making Radiopaedia.org even better! 

Prizes

There are a number of prizes available:

The winner gets two awesome prizes:

As part of our 2019 December Supporter Drive, we will be sharing a number of letters that we have received from colleagues from around the world, telling us how Radiopaedia has helped them personally and their community. 

These letters mean a great deal to all of us who volunteer our time to the project and are thrilled that their authors have allowed us to reproduce them here. We hope that they will mean as much to you as they did to us. 

As the month progresses, we'll be incrementally adding more letters here.

Over the past 6 months, we have been working on a new section of the website centred around artificial intelligence in radiology. In the spirit of Radiopaedia, we wanted to create a free resource that was both reliable and accessible to the non-computer science crowd. Although it may seem that artificial intelligence has emerged abruptly in our profession, it is necessary to remember that these concepts are actually at work behind the scenes in many technologies already utilised by radiologists (e.g. voice recognition and other natural language processing applications), and as our professions evolve and improve, so will we. 

A sound understanding of the basic concepts of AI is a great tool to have in your arsenal. As this branch of medical science becomes more embedded in contemporary practice, this will be an essential asset. Radiopaedia will continue to evolve to include relevant content in this field to ensure its users are up to date, informed and most of all, able to access this information for free. 

Creating a new section of the website to accommodate the influx of curious readers was phase one of our project. We are also working on an up to date record of publicly available image datasets for researchers to peruse, with (at the time of writing this blog) over 100 links. 

We hope you enjoy this new section of the website. It has been a rewarding project, and I hope our users take as much away from it as I did creating it. 

You can find our new articles here, and our image databases here.

Project type: create a new section of the website

Outcome: 57 new artificial intelligence articles

Team: Andrew Murphy (lead), Candace MooreJames Condon

 

Andrew is a Radiopaedia senior editor and an Australian-trained radiographer based in Vancouver, Canada. He is currently leading the artificial intelligence sub-council of the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists Professional Practices Advisory Council.

Because Radiopaedia started in Australia, we have until now supported only UK spelling. That's right oedema, haemorrhage and colour.

We know, however, that many of you prefer US spelling and are completely freaked out by all these extra letters. We can empathise. To us spelling oesophagus esophaus is, well, just a bit creepy.

And we also know how much some of you like z instead of s. Oh my, look at how zany organise looks with a z! I love it! 

Thanks to our amazing (or should that be amasing?) Radiopaedia Supporters we will now be changing all the spelling to be just right for you. No more flamewars among the editors about the pros and cons of oedema vs edema, aluminium vs aluminium or haemorrhage vs hemorrhage. You get the spelling you prefer. 

We'll take a punt based on your browser language setting, but to get it perfect just update the language setting of your free Radiopaedia profile and we'll do the rest. You can read more about it here

Update your profile settings

 

Features like this are, however, only possible because of Radiopaedia Supporters. If you are a supporter, thank you. Seriously. This is the sort of feature that you allow us to build.

If you are not a supporter but would like to become one, then this is the perfect time to do so. It will make you feel warm and tingly all over. Nothing quite compares, especially when one of the perks is no ads!
