In this project, we aim to create an online learning resource of interesting cases for learning paediatric radiology to help junior trainees get to grips with the basics of on-call pathologies, and also for more senior fellows to learn about the less common, interesting pathologies we see! Additional pages of resources to other educational links, online events, webinars of interest etc. also to be included.
The website will be created in Google sites and we welcome specialty radiology trainees (anyone ST1+) to help volunteer cases, help with site creation and case curation and labelling/annotating. The goal is to create a site similar to https://www.learnabdominal.com, but for paediatric imaging.
Any radiology trainees with an interest in paediatric imaging are welcome to collaborate. Sorry no medical students or foundation year students.
Pictorial Review: 3D Cinematic Rendering for Paediatric Musculoskeletal Conditions
Dr Susan Shelmerdine
Cinematic rendering is a new tool that provides photoreaslistic 3D volume rendered images from cross sectional imaging studies. We have recently tested this new tool at our department on a variety of musculoskeletal acquired and congenital anomalies. Currently a few publications for this tool in adult MSK pathology exists, but nothing in children. We would like to write up a pictorial review showing how this technique can help better visualise MSK pathology.
We are looking for motivated, keen radiology registrars/fellows (ST3+) with an interest in radiology education, MSK/paeds imaging who would like to write this educational article for publication. (DO NOT APPLY if you do not fit this criteria).
The case images are ready to be included in the publication, and anonymised so need for you to make any image reconstructions.
DRIFT 3D - Detection of rib fractures on paediatric CT studies using a novel 3D imaging technique
Dr Susan Shelmerdine
We have previously published a paper in the Lancet detailing how radiologists are able to better visualise rib fractures in children on chest CT than chest radiographs. This has important implications given that rib fractures may be a sign of child abuse.
Recently we have started to trial a new 3D rendering tool (cinematic rendering) to help perform photorealistic images of our CT cases. We would like to know if this tool helps further improve the accuracy of CT interpretation of rib fractures.
We are looking for motivated, keen radiology registrars/fellows (ST3+) based at GOSH to help co-ordinate this multi-centre, multi-reader study for diagnostic accuracy assessment of this rendering tool. (DO NOT APPLY if you do not fit this criteria). We have ethical approval, consent from recruited readers and have the case images ready.
This project will result in a peer reviewed publication in a radiology specific journal.
