Ideally we would like to have a few images that show the salient features, then a brief discussion of about 10-20 sentences. You may submit a link to a video that illustrates the case, like the case from Dr. Vikas Shah below. Submit more than one case and you will get your own link with your list of cases just like: Dr. László Tabár and Dr. Phillip Tirman!
Submit the case using the submit form below.
You may submit several files at the same time. (eg. ppt, doc, docx, gif, txt, etc.)
1. Be clear. Submit high resolution downloaded JPG or PNG images. You may also submit a short GIF or link to an online video in order to better demonstrate a dynamic process. No pictures of the monitor with your smartphone please.
2. Be private. Make sure the images are de-identified and HIPAA compliant before you download them from PACS.
3. Be honest. Images must belong to you and not be copyrighted.
4. Be conventional. Insert the images on the PowerPoint template. The template is very convenient and has several examples with arrows and labels you can use. It can be downloaded with the button on this page or via this link:
Discussion and image captions:
1. Be concise. The case should be able to be read in about 15 minutes. Submit as a .doc, .docx, or .txt file.
2. Be original. Do not copy and paste someone else's work.
3. Be smart. Submit journal references with links to the original online work.
