Web 2.0 forever! Dr Frank Gaillard let me know about this great site, Radiopaedia, a
wiki created for radiology. It’s been open to the public for just a few months, but the results are incredible. The aims of Radiopaedia:
The aim of Radiopaedia.org is to develop an online text where information is up to date and relevant to the needs of radiology staff, both registrars and consultants. There are many worthwhile online resources already, however most are not collaborative and therefore lack the ability to respond to users needs.
Anyone can create an article. Anyone can edit an existing one. Contributions remain logged to your name, and can be included in your CV, along with a link to your User Page.
Content is available for static use on PDAs.
What do you find if you take a look at this great resource?
- an encyclopaedia: with many entries and categories
- signs and stagings in radiology
- differential diagnosis (excellent!)
- mnemonics and study guide
Join them and take part in constructing the future of radiology! Physicians like Frank Gaillard change medicine itself and make it more accessible for experts and laymen. My favourite sentence from Frank’s letter:
A little contribution from a lot of people, and before you know it you have wikipedia !
