AbstractA Gallery Based Approach to Learning Radiology in Medical School
Purpose: To create an organized online teaching resource for learning radiology that organizes radiological images by teaching points into extensive image galleries.
Methods: Images were collected from the electronic medical record/teaching files from collaborating radiologists. These images were then processed (with the help of a Python program created for this project), annotated, and then uploaded by topic into online teaching points to the website www.stepwards.com.
Results: Many different teaching modules were created and published online throughout the course of this project (outlined more below) that covered important topic such as normal/unremarkable radiological studies, radiological anatomy, and the radiological appearance of pathological conditions.
Conclusions: The efforts of this project were successful in creating the teaching modules to the originally desired specifications. The modules were so effective that they are currently being utilized by the Mount Auburn diagnostic radiology program to aid in teaching residents/trainees about key concepts in radiology. With this in mind, there is still much more work to be done, and many more teaching points in radiology that would benefit from additional teaching modules. One day it would be most effective to try and collaborate with others who share the goal behind this project in order to generate conent more quickly and efficiently.
