Radiopaedia Blog

The Royal Melbourne Hospital Neuroradiology and Neuropathology Departments will be publishing the cases presented at our monthly multidisciplinary meetings online as Radiopaedia Playlists, so that everyone can benefit from these cases. These will be uploaded approximately monthly, and will contain a selection of unusual cases or particularly nice examples of more common pathology. In almost all instances each case will have both imaging and histology.

Myositis ossificans

This case demonstrates the typical circumferential calcification and lucent center of myositis ossificans. The imaging diagosis is not always as clear-cut as it is in this case, and further imaging may be needed. It is important to avoid biopsy of these lesions, especially in the early prolifferative phases, as histologically myositis ossificans can appear similar to osteosarcoma, and lead to inappropriate management. A clinical history of trauma, even minor trauma, can be very helpful.

Improved search

Until now, our search page was very picky about how you spelled something. Although that is often just a typo, sometimes it made life difficult. After all, many of us would struggle to remember the correct spelling of Lhermitte-Duclos syndrome... or was that L'Hermite-Duclo? 

It turns out that changing search engine and integrating into the various features on the site (both those visible, and the hidden away admin features) is no small task, and it has taken quite some time and work to get this working. Still, it was worth it.

Our search results are now much more forgiving and accept 'close enough' searches and provide you with both 'did you mean' alternatives and best guess results. 

We are planning on improving the search results further in the near(ish) future, including playlist, blog post and user profiles in the results, but that is a feature for another day. 

Hope this helps, and please let us know what you think.
