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 These reviews will leverage on the large database of online published and unpublished (at the moment) "normal" and "abnormal" cases.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

Some tips on motivation, time and effort allocation

As a radiology resident, or subspecialty fellow, consider challenging yourself to achieve "mastery" in one area or subspecialty of radiology

Presentation on mastery training in diagnostic radiology

Having an objective to focus on, and inspire you, will help you expend the effort required to keep working on improving your skills on a daily basis

Regular, focused, committed effort, with feedback, to broaden and deepen your expertise should then be your aim

Personally, I have found regular, daily thoughtful case review; regular reading of the literature; the process of continually building up an online case repository; regular compare and contrast case evaluation; and the scholarly activities of teaching, sharing and dissemination useful strategies
