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 These reviews will leverage on the large database of online published and unpublished (at the moment) "normal" and "abnormal" cases.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.

Strategic focus in the use of instructional technology

Strategic focus and approach to curating neuroradiology cases

1. the radiological problems presented in this blog closely reflect the neuroradiology caseload in our busy academic medical centre - which has subspecialty divisions in adult and paediatric neurology, neurosurgery, head and neck surgery and opthalmology / occuloplastic surgery

2. there is a systematic attempt to capture and curate not only typical or unusual presentations of each diagnostic category, but also a deliberate effort to record key images of all neuroradiology cases which are reviewed on a daily basis

3. this means that this blog / digital case repostiory can be used to not only highlight and review exemplar case examples, but explore the (whole) range of radiology presentations within each diagnostic category

4. the intent is for this case collection to be used to support undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing neuroradiology education and training

5. the focus of undergraduate and early residency education should be on exemplar cares, while the focus of advanced residency and fellowship training should be on progressing from competency and proficiency to mastery --> which can be defined as the ability to confidently and accurately recognize key features and key images of the whole spectrum of the presentation of any neuroradiology diagnostic category, and provide the justification for the final radiological diagnosis (radiology report of key findings)
