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 These reviews will leverage on the large database of online published and unpublished (at the moment) "normal" and "abnormal" cases.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

Thematic case review - Infarcts and mimics

The following series of cases are exemplar case examples. 


Imagine them forming the vertical axis of a distribution curve of the manifestations of a particular clinical / radiological presentation.
After you have reviewed them, then expand your experience horizontally along the spectrum by reviewing the cases on the hyperlinked webpage below.



what are the key features of an acute MCA infarct (above), compared with
a chronic MCA infarct (below)



what are the key distinguishing features of an arachnoid cyst (below)


compare and contrast the key features of a chronic infarct with a co-existing arachnoid cyst (below)


what are the key distinguishing features of vasogenic oedema (below), compared with cytotoxic oedema




what are the key features of an intraaxial mass (above)



what are the key features of an extra-axial mass or collection (above)



what are the distinguishing features of this intraaxial tumour (above) compared with an acute infarct



note the features of vasogenic oedema (above)



note the features of cytotoxic oedema (above)



note features of an acute ACA infarct (above)


compared with meningoencephalitis (below)
