Radiology is a difficult field in which the more images you see that are interpreted properly, the better you’ll get. The hard part is getting access to those images, and getting an accurate description of what is going on. The solution up until now has been expensive references, but Frank Gaillard is looking to unite all radiologists with his wiki, radiopaedia.org. The aim of radiopaedia is to:
The aim of Radiopaedia.org is to develop an online text where information is up to date and relevant to the needs of radiology staff, both registrars and consultants. In addition, the wiki format will allow discussion of topics and resolution of areas of confusion. There are many worthwhile online resources already, however most are not collaborative and therefore lack the ability to respond to users needs.
If you’re a radiologist and you have an exciting case to share with the world, head on over there right now!
