Radiopaedia.org and the UK Radiology Congress (UKRC) are collaborating for the first time to bring a Case of the Day competition to this year’s conference.
The conference runs June 12-14 at the Manchester Central Convention Complex in the United Kingdom. The theme of this year’s conference is “new techniques and technologies”, with plenary sessions on machine learning and artificial intelligence in radiology, as well as a comprehensive general radiology programme.
Everyone in the world will have an opportunity to a submit a radiology case for the UKRC 2017 Case of the Day competition. Each day during the conference, cases will be available to view in the dedicated Radiopaedia zone. The cases will also be shared across Radiopaedia's social media network and on the homepage so the whole world can join in the learning.
This competition is open to anyone in the world, not just those living in the UK. This is our way of helping to make UKRC 2017 a truly global education event.
Users who submit a case that is used for the Case of the Day will receive 12 months online access to our Adult Brain MRI review course and Neuroradiology Update 2016 course, featuring Frank Gaillard, Andrew Dixon and Peter Mitchell.
Each day, there will be 2 cases to review and there will be prizes for delegates at the meeting venue itself, and for those entering online from anywhere else in the world.
In the run up to the conference, you have the opportunity to submit cases to feature as the Case of the Day. The Radiopaedia.org editorial team will select the best ones and 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 helping Radiopaedia.org grow!
To submit a case, upload a case and add the tag “UKRC2017” in the right-hand column of the case edit page. Please make sure that your case is fully fleshed out (see our case publishing guidelines). We are accepting cases from all subspecialties.
Submitting a case is easy, especially if you are using one of our case uploaders. If not, then you can do it the old fashioned browser-based way. If you are not already familiar with how this works, this short video will help.
The final day for case submissions is Sunday 30th April. We will be in touch with you nearer the time of the conference to let you know if your case has been selected as a Case of the Day.
We are thankful to Barco for supporting the Case of the Day competition by providing four diagnostic display systems including the Coronis Fusion 6MP and the Coronis Uniti 12MP for case viewing during the conference.
