February 1999 AAOS Report

Testing imaging skills online

Test your imaging discrimination by accessing "Orthopaedic Flash Cards" on the Academy's web site. Every month, the Academy will post five challenging images in the "Medical Education" section of the home page, and individuals can review the images to determine the diagnosis or problem presented. All types of orthopaedic images will be presented including radiographs, CT, MRI and arthrograms. Images are presented in a "thumbnail" format. Click on the image to enlarge it, and then answer a series of questions relating to the diagnosis or the problem. Academy members also can submit images to post on the web site. Send images along with the diagnosis or problem to George W. Wood II, MD, editor, Orthopaedic Flash Cards, AAOS, department of electronic media, 6300 N. River Rd., Rosemont, Ill. 60018. Images can be submitted in 35mm slides, black and white print (5 x 7 required), floppy disk or e-mail, ofc@aaos.org. Questions about submissions can be directed to the Academy's department of electronic media, (800) 346-2267. (Once submitted, images will not be returned and become the property of the Academy.)
