←  Learning Pathways 

In this learning pathway, Associate Professor Frank Gaillard guides you through the interpretation of trauma CT brain.  Audio and video commentary is used to focus your attention on key concepts and information as you move through a series of articles, cases and quizzes. 

"Brilliant introduction for CT Brains and trauma. As a surgical resident aiming to transition to registrar in a non-trauma center, this covered essential topics not seen in routine practice."

"An excellent overview especially in providing a structured approach to interpreting the images."

"This is a truly excellent learning resource! What is particularly valuable is the video commentary allowing users to see how an experienced neuroradiologist approaches the CT Brain modality."

"It's an amazing course! The idea of separating it in different videos/audios was great, makes it more interesting! Thank you very much"

"Incredible lecture series. As a junior radiology resident about to start taking ER shifts, this has been tremendously helpful. [..] Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to teaching. By far, one of the best teaching series out there."
Intended audience

This learning pathway is intended for a fairly broad audience and covers a large range of topics (see below). Although some of the detail is targeted at radiology trainees as well as radiologist who do not have a great deal of experience with trauma, most of this learning pathway is relevant and useful to all physicians and surgeons involved in the care of trauma patients (emergency, neurosurgery, neurology, intensivists, general surgeons) as well as medical students. Radiographers and nurses will also benefit but are not the primary intended audience.

Pathway Overview

Audio transcript

This is the Trauma CT learning pathway, hosted by me, Frank Gaillard. I am a neuroradiologist and the founder and editor in chief of Radiopaedia.org and together in this pathway, I will guide you through a substantial amount of structured content relating to CT features of traumatic brain injury. Learning pathways are probably different from the kind of self-paced resources you have encountered before. They are really a guided tour through a topic where I try and give you context and focus your attention on what is important. They are comprised of a number of pages each of which includes an audio track at the start, just like this one, followed by a mixture of text and selected cases. Interspersed are some multiple choice quizzes as well as video commentary cases where you get to see me scroll through a case not only pointing out findings but also giving you some insight into how I go about looking at cases in everyday life.
