Radiopaedia Blog

Radiopaedia.org and the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR)  are again collaborating on giving you all the opportunity to submit an adult brain case to ASNR 2021 Case of the Day. 

Each day during the  ASNR 59th Annual Meeting (May 22-26, 2021), a case will be shown as the official Case of the Day. This had traditionally been 'invite-only', but for a number of years, one of the cases will be chosen from cases you submit to Radiopaedia.org. 

In addition to one ASNR 2021 case of the day winner, we will also be showcasing a number of the best submissions as our very own Radiopaedia.org 'cases of the day' on our home page and through social media. And, even better, you will be contributing to your personal case library and making Radiopaedia.org even better! 

Prizes

There are a number of prizes available:

RCR2020 Case Contest

We are thrilled to be helping the Royal College of Radiologists with its RCR2020 Digital Learning Programme. During this event, we are holding a joint prize-winning online case contest, supported by Medica. This contest will be open not only to RCR2020 delegates but, in the spirit of Radiopaedia, anyone in the whole wide world. This is our way of helping to make RCR2020 a truly global education event. 

Dates

The contest runs over three weeks, with five cases per week. The first set of five cases will be published online on Monday, September 21st 2020 at 0500 UTC, with further sets available on each of the following two Mondays. The answers and winners will be revealed on the weekend immediately following each week of cases.

Officially accredited CPD points are available for each case. 

Prizes

Awaiting those who get any of the cases correct is not only immense intellectual satisfaction, fame and glory, there are lots of prizes on offer too.

Prizes for RCR delegates

Each week, one RCR2020 delegate can win access to any one-day RCR event during 2021 (including one of the days of RCR2021). The RCR2020 delegate with the best overall results across the whole contest will also have the opportunity to win a grand prize, an iPad, sponsored by Medica.

Prizes for all other participants

Each week, one non-delegate can win a Radiopaedia All-Access Pass, worth $480 (USD).

Operation Zombie

Operation Zombie was an editorial project that ran from late 2019 to mid-2020. It was aimed at fixing as many "dead" links as possible. Over 2500 users tried to access content on Radiopaedia that simply was not available and we wanted to fix it.

Around 117 new articles were created. The top missing articles created include:

and there was some surprising basic content missing. For example:

An additional 79 dead links redirected to existing articles or removed (e.g. incorrect terminology, incorrect linking URL). 

A team of 14 editors contributed to this project and our thanks go to:

  • Amanda Er, radiographer, Singapore
  • Andrew Murphy, radiographer, Australia
