With its 2010 release, "Radiology 2.0: One Night in the ED" became the first radiology teaching file to simulate reading scans at a PACS workstation. The third installment has now arrived.
Volume 3. Cases from the End of the World
In 2015 I left a large, tertiary, university, hospital in the United States to practice in a rural town on the East Cape of the North Island of New Zealand. To paraphrase All Black great Richie McCaw, "We are just a small little hospital, in a small little town, in a small little country at the end of the world." The purpose of this app is to share some of the interesting cases I saw in my first year in my new home.
Disease often presents late to rural hospitals and the scans can be very interesting. Indeed, out here the most common presentation of colon cancer is a CT scan showing large bowel obstruction.
However, the cases in this collection are instead unusual or uncommon pathologies. You will be amazed that a region of only 45,000 people has such interesting disease!
This teaching file presents 42 interesting cases from my hospital in a small town in New Zealand. The cases are challenging, interesting, and fun. Want to know what kind of pathology lurks at the End of the World? Look no further.
Each case is presented as a complete CT or MRI scan that you can scroll through as if at a PACS workstation. Multiple sequences in multiple planes are presented for every case. Report, short discussions, and pathology/clinical followup are presented for each case.
The interface incorporates image zoom and pan. In addition, both portrait and landscape orientations are supported.
This intuitive teaching file is designed for practicing radiologists who want to see some interesting cases. The extensive content is contained within the app for offline viewing. You can learn radiology on-the-go and in the palm of your hand, even with a few minutes of spare time throughout the day. It is completely free and provided as a resource for medical education. No in app purchases. No subscription fees.
