Thematic Case Reviews

In these thematic reviews, the organisation and presentation of cases will be based on the latest educational research, including literature exploring the role of expertise in radiologic image interpretation; how to promote active learning in radiology trainees, and activities to simulate how experts through deliberate practice generate a holistic high-level representation of the image, which then fine-tunes the perception of potential lesions. These reviews will leverage on the large database of online published and unpublished (at the moment) "normal" and "abnormal" cases. Selected use of didactic instructional videos will be included.

What does a resident need to know?

1. Awareness of the range of neuroimaging modalities, and their uses (including strengths and weaknesses, indications for different clinical problems). These include CT, MRI, CT and MR angiography, catheter angiography, ultrasound and doppler studies, functional CT and MRI studies (including perfusion imaging, spectroscopy, fibre track mapping, metabolic imaging), and appreciation of the role of interventional neuroradiology techniques.

2. Ability to distinguish infarcts and haematomas from tumour masses.

3. Ability to detect major vascular abnormalities on CT and MR angiography.
