  • Chest Radiology
  • Interventional Radiology
  • Radiation Physics
  • Computers in Radiology
  • Editorial-Radiology Malpractice

Clark Bartram of Unintelligent Design shares with us a case of Transient Tachypnea of the Newborn with a good image & good explanation of TTN. It also has story that goes with this account of TTN and the discussion as to why this is more common in babies who have been born through a C-section.

Dr Sethi points towards Pediatric aspects of radiation exposure A briefing on CT radiation exposure and some radiation hazards what all pediatricians should know.

Signs in Chest Radiology
"The classic radiographic finding of pulmonary infarction is a wedge-shaped, pleural based triangular opacity with an apex pointing toward the hilus (Hampton hump)."

Another Interesting Chest X-ray by, try and make the diagnosis in the radiograph before you read the entire case.

Dr. Bhavin's blog features a case of Radiofrequency ablation of a peripheral lung tumor in a 78-year-old man with emphysematous lungs.

Sumer's Radiology Site talks about a basic radiation physics concept for medical students with a funny illustration.

So you bought a new computer, took it out of the box and positioned it on your desk. A short while later, you realized that without the right software, your computer is nothing but an expensive brick. Then the reality set in - you have to pay several hundred dollars for an office suite such as MS Office, another few hundred bucks for a good image-editing package such as Adobe Photoshop, and that's just the beginning. You may need good encryption software, an antivirus software, a firewall, PDF creation software and, if you are like me, software to help you establish web presence. Before you know it, you could be out more than a thousand dollars.
Or not! There is a way to equip your computer with all the tools you need, using high quality, full-featured and stable software that won't cost you a penny. I have been using the following open-source software for a long time and have been extremely pleased not only with software performance, but with all the extra money in my pocket. READ MORE

on Free software tools for radiologists -- there's a great (free) DICOM reader called Osirix which can do the usual array plus volume rendering..ect.

Unfortunatly(?) it only runs on mac machines.

...I'm not a radiologist, but as someone who made a living animating 3D reconstructed data of MRI/CTs using a $10,000 program called VG StudioMax, I'll say for a free open-source program Osrix is pretty amazing. -- pretty much bug free and intutitive.

I have no idea how I came across this blog... insomnia is my friend.
