Case studies: The documents in this section of the web page take the reader through the imaging and diagnosis of patients presenting to a community hospital. Each case study starts out with a question regarding imaging in a specific clinical scenario, asks questions about that imaging, and then proceeds to show the imaging, ask questions about it, and then discusses the follow-up of the case.

Radiographs: The documents in this section are PDFs of slide shows which cover radiograph interpretation.  The slide shows should be viewed in order.  The introductory slide show reviews the format of the lectures, the pre-test probability for interpretation of the radiograph, and normal anatomy.  The subsequent lectures cover, from most to least likely, the various findings and/or diagnosis for the radiograph.  [There are also quizzes on the content of these slide shows at the free website  See here for instructions.]
